I cdnuolt blveiee that I cloud audacity uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg The phaonmneal pwr. of the human mind Aoccdrnig to rscheearch team at Cambridge Uinervtisy, it doesn't mttaer in what order the ltteers in a word are, the only iprmoatnt thing is that the first and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rest can be a tattle mess and you can still read it without a porbelm. This is bcuseae the human mind does not read ervey letter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Such a condition is arppoiately cllaed Hypoglycemia
