    Default Only "Great Minds"

    For our friends in countries in which English is not spoken as a first language ... don't feel bad if this gives you a headache.


    Only great minds can read this

    This is weird, but interesting!

    fi yuo cna raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid too

    Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

    **I do doubt the "claim" that only 55 out of 100 can make sense of this. As I recall it was a much higher percentage**

    Well, it's certainly interesting!

    And the explanation makes sense too. (Guess I'm one out of those at least 55 people to be able to read this.)
