In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

Interesting how the brain works

I wrote about this a long while ago. However, recently someone sent me an email mentioning this scrambled paragragh and how we can still read it. And so I decided to mention it again because it's interesting.

Here it is
"Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can."

"i cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!"

Spelling is still important!

...anyway, that's why I always tell people learning to read a foreign language (for example Americans learning to read Hebrew): if you're concentrating on every letter as opposed to the "picture" of the word giving you an immediate idea of what the word means it's a sign that you haven't gotten that far..

I agree that spelling is still important, it's just interesting how we can still read it even though it's scrambled.

In regards to hebrew, I use to read every letter, but when I looked at the whole word, I was like, oh, I know that.
