Pretty interesting… I’m not exactly sure who wrote it. I originally saw this a few months ago inserted as the test blog entry in a fresh installation of the Joomla content management system (so maybe a Joomla programmer wrote it). Now it seems to be spreading around in chain mail as well… thanks Ash 😉 I looked into it far enough to confirm that there is absolutely no such study on this topic at an English university. Anyway, it was interesting enough to post. Okay, now everyone quickly send this to your favorite English teacher… I mean… Oaky, now erveoyne, qciukly sned tihs to yuor fvaortie Eginslh tahceer.

The study is weird and incredible at the same time. I’ve known about this study for a few years now after it was done at Stanford, but it’s still a great study and proves that the human brain uses recognition more than anything.
This study is awesome! I wish they made books like this.
This is sooooooooooooo kool.
It is kinda awesome, but if im not mistaken. I have found atleast 3 miss spelling in the text. Its kinda anoying 😛

Wow, this is amazing. But it’s still good spelling the words correctly. Correct spelling dignifies a language, wrong spellings humiliates it. well, but for the sake of laughter and fun, hmm, i like it. Teh Gyu taht ivnented tihs soulhd kepe it up!!!!!
I could read it! I’m french, so I was really really surprised. I didn’t think my brain could do that! Thank you for this little post. 🙂
