If you consider that our brain reads this way, that's how some people can read damn fast. I've heard someday that it's possible to look at the words, the sentences really fast and go down.The brain processes all the informations after you actually read them, like a CPU and a buffer.

Can you read it ?

That's the site, with the explanations. There are other versions in different languages.

Without a even so much as a pause, I read it right through...

I think the really poor grammer and spelling of forums has prepped me for this test. :D

Damn KC, I've read your post, and haven't seen the order of the letters the first time lol.
Looks like if we're not aware of the letters being transposed, we sometimes don't notice.

I tried it in french and in english, an it's pretty easy to read.
Some of my friends tried too, and they can read it.

It's easier to read if you try to read fast. If you concentrate too much, you don't understand, you get confused.

That's interesting. I knew one person in the past that could make some reverse speach. I never understood what he was saying !
