    Hehe, oldie, but true
    Life may not be exactly pleasant, but it is at least not dull. Heave yourself into Hell today, and you may miss, tomorrow or next day, another Scopes trial, or another War to End War, or perchance a rich and buxom widow with all her first husband's clothes. There are always more Hardings hatching. I advocate hanging on as long as possible.

    I hadn't seen it before and I ran across it and thought it was amusing.

    it sometimes could matter, how about could. There is also the word cloud with the same letters at the start and finish. I guess the mind also sees the context and realizes it can't be "I couldn't believe I cloud...". I've seen this before, but still pretty amazing. Or Shluod I say azamnig

    but do you hvae tourlbe rinadeg tihs? (seriously actually the 5th word there's a bit tougher than most. My mind had to try a few re-arranges before getting the word)

    Okay, a little time out from the game to point something out...
    What about words like...
    Theatre Theater
    Centre Center


    Those are the same words but the the last two letters are placed differently based upon where you write it.

    I actually got confused one time when I was reading a Sci-fi story written by a British author because he kept talking about the Centre of the ship and I was wondering what the Centre was and if it was similar to the center.

    My qeustoin is, is terhe a csaaul rlathniisep, or is it olny csaaul?

    Waht if one deos a bteetr job of sbnrilacmg legnor wdros? Deos it not tehn bmeoce edneivt taht tihs spsouped bhgurrakoteh i'nst ture?

    How aubot if oethr wrods are hedidn wihitn the slbracemd wrods?

    Wtih any lcuk, yl'uol see taht the "it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are" cailm is oetstaverd bsulihlt.

    -------------------

    My question is, is there a causal relationship, or is it only casual?

    What if one does a better job of scrambling longer words? Does it not then become evident that this supposed breakthrough isn't true?

    How about if other words are hidden within the scrambled words?

    With any luck, you'll see that the "it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are" claim is overstated bsulihlt.
