That was pretty cool. At first I thought it was another language and didn't even bother thinking to myself I don't speak whatever language she's writing, but then I looked again and I could read it. Pretty neat!!

Dolores and Shawn said...

Tracey & Mike said...

I can read it too, but we all knew I was strange...besides when I am in a rush that is how I spell too, hehe

That is freaky! I wonder if that is what the dossiers look like to the CCAA reviewers and matchmakers????????

WOW, not only could I read it, but fast! It was as if there was no difference. Initially I thought I'd struggle through the whole post. SO cool!!

Melissa said...

I think the 55 out of 100 is a little off - seems everyone could read it, including me!
I wanted to say thank you very much for the comment you left on my blog about my Zeus. Your words were very comforting.

Someone sent this to me at work...amazing isn't it!

Monica said...

I've seen this before...and it still amazes me just as much now as it did then! The funny thing is that you can read it every bit as quickly as you could if it were spelled correctly...and just as easily! I only had to pause at one word...at the very end, I read "sleeping" when it was "spelling" at my FIRST glance at the word.
