Can You Do This?

Just for fun. Can you figure this out?
1. Whats wrong here
Did you know that 80% of UCSD students could not find the error above?
2. This isn't really a game but it is still cool! fi yuo cna raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid too Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can. 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 dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.

Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! if you can raed tihs forwrad it
I couldn't believe it when I could read it! The human brain is amazing! Now I am going to see if my DH and son can do it.
Where you able to read it?
The answer to #1 is there is only something wrong in the title! "Whats" is supposed to be "what's". The letters are there to throw you off and there is nothing wrong with the letters. Pretty stupid but still kind of fun!!

1. have no clue what's wrong :(

1) I'm at a total loss. You'll have to explain it to me because, though I went over it time and time again, it looks like the alphabet, in a vertical line, letters repeated 3x each. Don't see anything "wrong"...BUT...

2) I CAN read the mess! I've seen this before and it is amazing that the human brain can process that disaster and understand it! I am dislexic (marginally with letters, more so with numbers) so the fact that I can read it probably has to do with the dislexia! (I'm not sure I even spelled dislexia correctly - now isn't that awful?)

You've got to tell me what's wrong in the first thing...or it will drive me batty all day long and I won't be able to concentrate on my filing! I'll be putting AlphaGraphics stuff under Knoxville Hotel Info!!!

Come on, Spill!

Ok...We have a problem...I don't know what is wrong either...lmao! I am going to see if I can find the answer. I can read the bottom part but my 14 yr old son couldn't. I personally don't think anything is wrong but I will see what I can find out!

I found the error though it took me a bit because I was overlooking the title. BTW there is another error in your post---"Where you able to read it?"
should have read "Were you able to read it?" :-)
I have seen this before and it does just totally blow my mind that it is so readable! =^..^=

Karrie said...

Yep, you are right KittsKrafts :) Spelling is not my thing and it doesn't help when my fingers are going faster then my mind..LOL

I've seen that second one and it amazes me every time! As for the first one, bad grammar kills me, but I assumed I was looking for an error in the letters. My bad for assuming!

Anonymous said...

great post! really enjoyed it. And of course- didn't find error in first part- assuming it was in the column with letters! :)

Karrie said...

Well Jen you know what they say about assuming...LOL.
I think that is what the whole thing is about for you to look at the letters and find the problem...not anything else.
Love the second part myself..it is amazing and I can't get over that I read it with no problems...no stopping to figure out a word..just read like it was normal.
Glad you all liked it! :)
