Dyslexics of the World: Celebrate!

Olny srmat poelpe can raed tihs. Jsut kdindg. Msot popele can raed tihs wtih no porlebm. Gvien the phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a reesarcehr at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh?!
So why do we spend so much time teaching spelling?

I've heard that before, but never read a whole paragraph written out with rearranged letters. Crazy how easy it was to read!
