Were you amazed at how easily you read that jumbled statement?

There was a thread on this a few weeks ago..

We also looked at how just seeing the top half of letters was fairly easy to read.

Lol - there was an absolute epidemic of this a year or so ago! Several threads - and many posts - were done using this information.

The circulating emails invariably get it wrong and those who pass it on never correct it.

It's not "bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe".

If that were the reason then moving the first and last letter would not make a difference.

The real issue at hand is very simple, the extremities of the words are simply the most readily identifiable points of reference to the brain.
