For the grammer police...
« on: March 09, 2011, 11:15:25 PM »
I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

Why are the police looking for Kelsey Grammer?  Is this thread a code to help them find him?

Considering that only 1:4 Americans are proficient at reading English, (some studies reflect much lower rates of literacy) I suspect it would be understood much easier if proper spelling and grammar was used.

OOPS. Sorry. I didn't realize we had some of the other 80% on here.
