So there you are, happily typing away at your well thought out response to something on News24 or BBM or whatever and BAM...
You look up at the screen and it looks like your dog had jumped on your keyboard while you weren't looking.
Suppressing your inner grammar Nazi when you see typos all over the place is hard work for a lot of people!
Luckily the human mind is a fantastic thing!
This thingie was doing the rounds a while back, check it out:
Can you raed this? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.3
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! If you can raed this forwrad it.
Hahaha!Every time I see this (or variations of it) I marvel at how epic our brain is.
Is just those odd occasions when you bomb off a text or something and it says EXACTLY what you do not want it to say...
Anyone else out there struggle with keyborad dysxlia from time to time?
