Crazy me. All this time I thought I had to correct my typing errors before publishing a post. In fact, most of my time writing a blog is spent using the grammar/spell checker to correct the myriad typing mistakes these at-one-time nimble fingers are making. But that’s all about to change now. Perhaps you have seen the email going around that talks about how agile the human mind is in picking up words, even if they are misspelled. For your convenience I am copying it here:
eonvrye that can raed this rsaie your hnad.
If you can read the following paragraph, forward it on to your friends and the person that sent it to you with ‘yes’ in the subject line.
Only great minds can read this
This is weird, but interesting!
If you can raed this, you have a gaert mnid too
Can you raed this? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.
I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! If you can raed this forwrad it
This will change how I blog on many levels. First, I will be able to post more often because I won’t worry about my terrible typing. You know what I always say: “quantity not quality!” Secondly, I can turn off that pesky spell-checker and all it’s annoying little red squiggly lines that try to interrupt my profound thought. If I ever meet the jerk who invented that app, I’ll gvie hym a godo pceie of my mdni! Last, but not least, it will weed out those 45 readers who don’t have a great mind like me. Of course, whoever is reading this right now, be assured I don’t think you are one of those 45.
Well, that’s all there is to it. I leave you with our motto: “Dyslexics of the world, untie!”
