Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can. i cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. 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 rghi t 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.

I'm amazed at how the mind works. You're corrected in school all the time for correct spelling and in the end... it doesn't even matter, haha.

But if you don't know all the correct letters it is not easy to read . So spelling is important ;)

I'd be more impressed with myself if the odds of being able to read it were more like 55 out of every ten million people could read it, instead of just over half.
