One of the developers here at work constantly assaults me with link after stupid link pointing to everything on the internet from Dilbert cartoons to pictures of really big bridges to videos of guys owning each other in the groin with baseball bats. Usually I issue a polite "Wow", "Ouch", or "Haha" and move on with my work; however this was particularly interesting.

The page just had the following text on it,

"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 deosn't mttaer inwaht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl 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? Yaeh, and I awlyas thought slpeling was ipmorantt."

Maybe I'm behind on my Cambridge University research, but I had never heard of this before.
