The Amazing Power of the Human Mnid
I know a guy.
And this guy “forwards” those “forwarded emails”.
You know the ones.. Pictures of cute puppies & kitties, and political mass mailings, etc.?
But this guy, I signed up to be on his mailing list. Because he culls all those circulating FW:’s out there in Internetland, and only selects the cream of the crop for.. well, further “forward”-ing. Here’s one I found interesting, and I think some of you might, too. (Others will recognize the first section of the ‘quiz’.)
(And, what the hey. Think of it as a break from your Monday.)
Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this OUT LOUD you have a strong mind.

To my ‘selected’ strange-minded friends:
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!
My spellchecker had a nervous breakdown…
If you had no trouble with that first section, you might know of |337? (pronounced “leet”, short for “elite”) and know it is rather old.
Well. Back to the old grindstone..
