Are any of you able to read this without any trouble, I find this amazing that I am able to read this it looks so weird but I have absolutely no trouble at all reading this.

Unisg the icndeblire pweor of the hmuan mnid, aocdcrnig to rseecrah at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mttaer in waht oderr the lterets in a wrod are, the olny irpoamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rhgit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whoutit a pboerlm. Tihs is bucseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey ltteer by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Aaznmig, huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghhuot slelinpg was ipmorantt! See if yuor fdreins can raed tihs too.

I don't remember where I saw this but I copied and pasted this to a text file on my computer a long time ago and just remembered about it now and I have never asked if any else could read it too but it says in the thing itself that everyone can read it its still mind blowing though atleast to me.

Yes, I could and I heard about this a long time ago as well! It's both unusual and amazing at the same time!

Here is what it says.

>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 sleeping was important!  See if your friends can read this too.

I think everyone can read it.

I always wondered if dyslexic people could read it but my one friend who has dyslexia I wouldnt want to ask to read it because it would upset him if he couldnt and he might not even try
