    Just got this in an email from a friend today. Entertaining read:

    Don't delete this because it looks weird. Believe it or not you can read it.

  3. I've seen this before, yet I'm always truly amazed at how easily you can actually read it...

    I read through it at the same speed I normally read. :eek: But maybe that's because I've seen this before.

    You've still got to get the right letters in a word - spelling is important... slpeling is important... suplilng is important... (yes - that third one contains a deliberate misteak ;) ).

  7. I got something similar via email a while back. Only that one was MUCH longer, about a page or so. Funny thing was, my roommate for some odd reason actually had trouble reading it in a couple spots.
