    Smile Brain Test...Can you read this?

    I've seen this with the letters out of order, but this is the first time I've seen it with numbers. Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this OUT LOUD you have a strong mind. And better than that: Alzheimer's is a long, long, way down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you.

    Only great minds can read this. This is weird, but interesting!
    Can you raed this? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can. I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseaethe huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

    I have seen these with numbers. For me it was very simple to read-I consider myself a speed reader. I don't need to read all the words to understand a sentence or paragraph. I think it is up in the air about the alzheimer's thing. Do they really have enough medical proof? Alzheimer's runs in our family, and this has always been a scary issue for all of us.

    Seems simple, to me. I don't believe that nonsense about how only 55 out of 100 can read it.

    I could easily read the last with all the letters out of place. Some on this board do it all the time. Reading this board has given me lots of practice.

    it was very easy for me to read. spelling is important, but not 100% necessary to get a message across

    Both were quick and easy for me as well, and today isn't even a good day.

    The ability to read with all the numbers and letters out of place is what makes it so hard to proofread something. It is even harder to proofread something you wrote. I worked for a small newspaper, and they wanted us to proofread each others stuff, not our own.

    I read it with ease.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.
