Weird...I had very little trouble reading that. But what if there are different words that can have the same starting and ending letters?

Like...uhm..ok I can't think of an example.
Taht's prttey naet! Ti's kdina hrad tohugh wehn soemodby acullaty splels the wrod wonrg.
Freaky, That's completely different than my teacher told me only a few days ago. he said your brain looks at each letter individually.

If I wrote like that in my english class the teacher would kill me.. She can barely read my handwriting already, but that's why everyone gets a free laptop at our school
hehe.. I got this in e-mail a couple days ago.. Seems to fit this topic.:) Thought you might all get a kick out of this.


The Final Word....

For those of you who watch what you eat,
here's the final word on nutrition and health.
It's a relief to know the truth after all those
conflicting medical studies:

1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer
fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer
heart attacks than Americans.

3. Africans drink very little red wine and
suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red
wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. Germans drink a lot of beer and eat
lots of sausages and fats and suffer
fewer heart attacks than the Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you

That is pretty cool PlantAKiss!! Too bad you still have to be able to spell, which is my downfall. I'm a terrible speller!! I have to copy all my posts to my word processor and run spell check before i post them. Otherwise nobody would know what i was talking about!

Okay, I could read it, but my hair is standing on end and I have a headache.

I should right a report that way and count the seconds from the time it is finished to the captain has me in his office.

I'll bet people using translator programs are wondering what we're talking about.

Hey, somebody needs to tell Plantakiss That somehow Darcie must have figured out her password and is posting under her name.

Sorry I just couldn't resist..

way, the comps for people with other languages can't unscramble it... proves that we're smarter than computers...

Maybe it's because we've been reading posts on the forum so long that we've had lots of practice reading mis-spelled words?
