I must be some sort of weirdo, I could read it almost as fast as if it were spelled correctly. Very simple, no special effort.

May be the 2 or 3 brain cells that are still alive are scrambled too!

I wonder what the difference is between people who have to figure out each word and those who fly right through it. I think I stumbled on two of the words, but otherwise I read it as fast as I normally read too.

Who knows, when this email started out (years ago?), it probably said 5 out of 100 people can't read it. Before I forward it to my fam/friends, I think I'll change it to read '105 people out of 100 can't read this'. lol

When I copied and pasted it into the 'New Topic' message box, almost every word was underlined in red. I cn'at ianmgie yhw.

The real test is to take a printed document and face it flat on a table as if someone across from you was reading it.

If you can read it Backwards and Up-Side Down......You are special!!!

Like Me!!!



How about Spoonerisms???

How about spelling Backwards as well as you can forward???

My high school algebra teacher use to tell us to hold a book in front of the mirror and try to read it backwards.

That was going around our office a while back.. We wrote up a few new sentences like that and had 15 people read it out loud. All of them read right through, no problem.

So I'm thinking it's more like 100 out of 100.

Sorta makes me feel like all that time learning how to spell back in elementary school was a waste of time though.

there are no saturday morning cartoons any more.... just anime static crap. reminds me of the old Clutch Cargo days of cardboard cutouts with a human mouth moving behind it mouthing the words. (no offense to OUR wonderful Clutch Cargo, of course) but that was crap, and so is anime. i mean, how many more 'card game' shows can we stomach???
EXAMPLE-- "let's duel" "ok" "my monster is beating up your monster" "oh yeah? well.... just let me pull this card outta my @$$ that no-one knew existed and now i WIN!!!" HAHAHAHAHA!!
sheesh.... gimme a break.
it almost makes me MISS Lippy the Lion and Hardy-Har-Har.... Touche' Turtle and DumDum... Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumly.....lol
saturday morning cartoons??? "HELP ME MR. WIZARRRRRRRD!!!"
