I see this horribly signature so awfully often. And it enrages me so.

“Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55% of plepoe 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!
fi yuo cna raed tihs, palce it in yuor siantugre.”

And why? the statistic. Supposedly, only 55% of people can read text lkie tihs.

I am yet to come across an English-Speaking person with an above-the-level-of-retardation I.Q. who cannot read this.

The statistic is false, yet so few see it.

And now I see the horror spreading from the confined “LOL WE’S MAKIN A MMORPG” GMC to the even younger and impressionable PokePlushies.com.

if we don’t stop it soon, the entire world’s next generation will be gullible yet kind-natured fools, a crafty Russia will say “You don’t need nukes, we’ll never go to war with anyone”, and we shall all end our days in a blackened world of pain.
