Don't try to think about it too much. Just read it. The first time I saw it I read it as if it were written correctly. But, I can read something that's upside down as if it were right side up too. <br><br>

I learned to speed read in Jr. High. Don't ask, but it was cool and I can still do it. I could read the post.<br><br>We don't read a sentence word for word for word. We "scan" the sentence and that incredible eye to brain link does the rest. That's why san serif type isn't nearly as "friendly" to the eye. The little balls and such on serif type (OK, the serifs) allow the eye to travel more smoothly over the line of text. Makes it easier to process.<br><br>But y'all already knew that. <br><br>Yuo, two, torg. Qiut kidindg aournd.

People don't realize it's not thier eyes that see, it's the brain, and the brain doesn't see what's really there - it sees what it believes should be there.<br><br>

The Iowa gun deaths thing is 'true' - insofar as it's a statistic. I found it when Bowling For Columbine came out in the UK - after seeing that film, I wanted to know if his statistics were real or not, so I went looking on the web, and one of the things I found alongside a list of the top 10 countries in the world for gun deaths was this research about gun deaths across the US, which said that if Iowa were a country it would rate in the top 10 countries. I think it was for 2002 or 2003 the research date. I don't have the link anymore, I'm afraid.<br><br>As to the reading with the brain thing, someone once pointed out to me "Our problem is that we don't believe what we see, we see what we believe." And the perceptual filters for the different senses are very different too. If you write poetry, try reading it out loud to yourself - it's a much more direct experience than reading just through the eyes, because there's a lot less interpretation going on between spoken word-ears-brain than between written word-eyes-brain.<br><br>- Padmavyuha<br><br>[color:purple]A lopsided man runs best along the little side-hills of success<br>- Frank Moore Colby</font color=purple>

Hey, it's the internet. Everything old is new again. Want to know how to levitate?<br><br>P.S. I just looked at the post date on your link. That was about the time I had just moved into my new digs in Vegas. I don't think I had my internet connection hooked up yet. Oh well.<br><br>

There's an easier way to levitate without the box, or special pants. Just like David Blane does. ;)<br><br>
