By: Krista Darrach

Okay ... what else could I have posted for April 1st?
Had to be something fun!
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 cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! 

I love it! I was surprised to not only read it... BUT read it quickly! 
Shocking that only 55 people out of 100 can read it.
How did you do?


  1. And this Krista is why you have to be anal to be a great proofreader, ha.

  2. LOL...that's funny Terri. I've always been amazed by this too, Krista. I had no problem reading it at all. I guess my brain is scrambled too...or perhaps it is the writer gene. Letters just seem to know where to go?? I love word games. hugs~

  3. How did I do? I'm one of the 55. I don't know if that's something worth admitting to if it means I'm strange. hahaha Thanks for the great post. And definitely my kind of april fool's joke. I don't get off on the hurtful ones, but this is just plain fun. Thanks!

  4. The human brain is completely amazing. I wonder why only slightly more than half are able to read it.

  5. This hurts! I've always prided myself on my spelling skills with my high point being 4th grade spelling bee winner in my class, then to find it doesn't really matter! ;D

  6. I can read it too. I wonder if we took a straw pole we would find out that most writers can read it. I am going to show my very analytical civil engineering husband and see if his logical brain allows him to read it also. My 15 year old 4.65 GPA son just stepped in and he read it just fine.
