    seen that before - very cool. The other interesting thing is that people tend to look at the tops of letters to determine what they are. Cover up the top half of a portion of text and a person will have a much harder time reading it than if you cover up the bottom half.

    incidentally, one of the reasons reading music can be challenging for some people is because they try and read note for note and forget about the bigger picture.

    Them:"Who's Lydia? Who's she flatting?"
