I’m afraid I can’t find the original creator of this, (maybe Cambridge University?!), but it’s pretty cool, right? I sometimes think that it’s amazing that we can read; putting 26 letters and all sorts of punctuation together like puzzle pieces, while at the same time making meaning out of them, does not sound easy to me. For some of us, it isn’t, and I totally get that. Any thoughts?

hahahahaha i love this website its awsome
I really have always wondered how the human mind can just read this in an instant. I have seen a few of these before, and for me, they are really easy to read. I wonder what it would be like if somebody wrote a book using this same kind of “code” with the letters all mixed up. I would really want to read it!
That was amazing, I could read it all with no trouble! 🙂
omg thats so cool
THAT IS SOO COOL!!! i couldn’t find any way to read it, and i am still trying:P haha!!
This is so cool! I read all of it without re-reading a word! It’s so cool how our minds can figure out words when the letters of the word are scrambled. It’s amazing!!
i could actully read this! i didnt think i could when i first looked at it. ahah(: 😀
I think this is super AWESOME!!!!!!!! I saw some thing like this on another website. Only on the other website I only saw the first word and I thought they spelled the word wrong so I skipped the post. I really think this is cool!! =) 😛
This wasnt very hard to read I could read it easily 😀
Cool I did not know that it was so easy to read
I think that is soooo cool that i just read that whole thing and didn’t stop once to see what a word meant; SO COOL!!!!! 🙂
That is so cool I love it. I can’t not believe that our mind just knows what the words are and the letter sare mixed up. I love it, so cool
the human mind does not need a word spelled right thats why we have word scamblers
Hmmm….. but that’s an additional skill needed, right? Puzzle solving? Interesting thought,
