WRODS...and what really matters...

So next time a friend, chat-buddy, message boarder, or some loser you happen to be arguing with on poker stars chat-box while you're playing a sit n go tries correcting your misspelled words or typos becasue they either have no other argument, have OCD, or are just plain too hyper about correcting spelling mistakes, send them this. Because really, it's not about spelling properly, anymore than it's about speaking properly, using correct grammar, et al: it's about conveying thought, and doing this just well enough so the other person understands what it is you're saying or typing. sj

Here's a recent study from Cambridge University that is pretty cool…
Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a total 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?
