    Oh, my gosh, I had no trouble at all reading it. I have to get my husband to try this. He always said I was from outer space.

    How funny. I read it without any problems, and english is not my native language.

    I’m a teacher so I know why I can read it. But I don’t believe the stat that 55 out of 100 can read it. I think it would be higher. I’ve seen this before and thought I read that MOST people could read something like that.

    I’m SO an alien! I stumbled through the first sentence, but then picked up speed and was reading as fast as normal by the time I got to the third sentence. How cool! Of course, I still prefer proper spelling (sorry, I was an English major).

    That’s so weird, I can actually read it. I wonder what the percentage goes down to if you mix the last letter in or the first or both.???hmmm.

    WOW! I thought It was a dyslexic problem. It must be because we are readers and read fast. What an interesting fact! Thanks for sharing!

    Well, I’m an alien too.

    Like Michelle, I read very fast. I can’t do books on tape b/c they read too slow!

    Have a great week!

    most definitely – maybe it’s just people like LOVE to read – we read so fast sometimes that we’ve trained our brains somehow!!! – or it’s because I’m inately a terrible speller anyway 🙂
