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.

Yeay I'm a weirdo! Kinda of anticlimactic since I've been a weirdo for a while now.

I thought that everyone who could read could read these kind of scrambles. I am very interested in why it's only at 55% of the pop.

Do you think it's because we experienced reading Chaucer in Middle English!?
