I couldn’t believe that I could actually understand what I was reading.  Using the incredible power of the human mind, according to research at Cambridge University, it doesn’t matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be in the right place.  The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without a problem.  This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a whole.  Amazing, huh?  Yeah and I always thought spelling was important!

See if your friends can read this too.
