There are varieties of this one doing the rounds, but they are all amazing. It is really interesting to see how we actually read, isn't it !!
Take care, Meow

It really is incredible how the human brain operates :o)

Could it be that spelling is over-rated?

I've seen this one before. I wonder about the first part, though ("only smart people can read this"). If the human condition allows us to read the word by seeing the first and last letter, then that has nothing to do with IQ(?)

Aynawy, tihs is vrey itesnretnig iedned.

the brain is amazing indeed. Maybe Cambridge University just needed a spell check program?

Its called CHUNKING. The brain does it for memory purposes. When kids are learning to read they chunk the first 3 letters of words until their brain has learned how to read correctly. Lil bit of stuff I learnt in college!
