  1. Just for the Newbies who claim that spelling is not important. They might have a point.

    This is weird, but interesting!

    Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

  5. *Serious hat on*

    True Drakey, with a little effort it is readable, but communication should be as clear as possible (the onus is on the 'transmitter' in my opinion) and stuff like that makes life harder for the recipient and is more likely to be misunderstood. The fact that it is rude and self-indulgent is another matter.

    Then again, I don't doubt your Devil's advocacy here :evil: :wink:

    *Serious hat off*
     
  6. I didn't need to to read that to know that I've got a strange mind :twisted:
     
  7. The power of the mind! Try doing it when the words are out of context, different kettle of fish :?
