  2. Absolutely amazing! I mean, I haven't seen that before. :roll:
  3. Well i thought it was quite good, genuinely haven't seen it before!
  4. You want to send that to all your friends in an email.
    Stating that if they don't send it to all their friends within 30 seconds all their dreams wont come true, FOR EVER ! :twisted:
  5. So, if it doesn't matter about the order of the letters, why can only 55 out of 100 read it?

    Off you go and ask the researchers at Cambridge University.

    edited 'cos I realised:

    Because the other 45% of the test sample drawn from the students at Cambridge were found to be unable to read the letters in the correct order?
  6. I'll admit that it is good and shows how amazing the brain is. However, it's been doing the rounds for at least five years to my knowledge. So you must be living under a rock. :D

  8. I love you too xxx
  9. I thought advertising wasn't allowed.

  10. I've got no friends to e-mail me this sort of shite though, sometimes I get so lonely I create alternate hotmail accounts and send myself Chain e-mails saying "the next person you send this to is awesome" and spend hours clicking forward, send, forward, send over and over.

    Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to cry myself to sleep.
  11. You could have sent the fucking key setting, you cunt!
  12. Shouldn't the thread title be "one for the arRse spelling mafia" :?
  13. I think the percentage of the population who cannot read these are the people who carefully read every word one at a time. Those people will tend to see each word as rubbish.

    More of us tend to "skim-read", picking out the useful bits in what we read, so the brain is focussed not on ", word by word, so their brain receives jumbled letters just as that.

    The skim reader sees the whole phrase at once and, without needing individual words, sees letters and groups of letters that are just unlikely to be there in any phrase not saying "and then you understand it"

    I suspect it may not be purely an intelligence" matter, but perhaps largely connected with how a child is taught to read in the first place.
