As you may know, I'm a copywriter. So I'm into the power of words. I agonise over all my copy. Adding words and phrases. Deleting words and phrases. Sometimes I'll take weeks to get the headline just right.

And then i ran across this today on Stumbleupon -

    Awesome!

    I've seen stuff like this before but seeing it again is really cool!

    The bizarre thing is I can actually read this faster than I can normal text, but this may be down to the fact I'm partially dyslexic... I'm used to words involuntarily "jumbling up".

      The reason you can read this faster is due to the fact that you dont bother to read every single letter in every single word in the sentence. You're brain realize what happens and matches the jumbled word with the actual word that looks the closest. Its just like looking at a stop sign and instantly knowing what it says, your brain is trained to recognize it. cool huh?
      Speaking of this I might try to do this in a blog post :-)

    That's what I call "unique content"... not sure if its keyword optimized though... unless the Google algorithm has some artificial intelligence built in :p

    I don't think you can agonise much with an "S". You really need a "Z" to truely feel the agony. The "S" in agonise doesn't have a sharp edge to hurt you. The "Z" in agonize is Zorro's sword by which you cut a vein, dip into the blood, and write your Zopy.

      I think writing like that would increase time rather than save it because you have to decide how to re-arrange the letters and making sure you keep the first and last letter in place

        YEAH, and what happens if the language is a second one, or unknown, or they have to look it up!!?!?!? Up above, I could easily read EVERYTHING, until two words. That is ODD, since I learned them like when I was 4. Don't ask me why, but I just learned some basic stuff in several languages, and it just STUCK. ALSO, I have seen the phrase MANY times, and know several thousand words in the language. THESE, being quite basic and learned LONG ago, were obviously two of them. If they were spelled out, I would have INSTANTLY read it like it were English. The words?

        Merci Beaucoup, or "Many Thanks".

        Imagine the time I might have had trying to look THOSE up! 8-) Luckily, I figured Mreci? Could be Merci, AH, DUH! And the other word just came to me as easily as everything else after that.

    Because the brain can unscramble words with little effort is why an editor's job isn't as easy as some people think. They have to slow themselves down or their brain will see what was intended instead of the mistakes. It's also why it's doubly hard to proofread your own text. Not only do you have the same "brain will fix it" problem, but you know what you meant to say in the first place so you're even more likely to see what you intended rather than what you actually wrote.

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

    Wow ! That is amazing. I have see a reading test like that done in fun ! Its been awhile though. There are a lot of amazing things our bodies can do. Think about our eyes and their complexity - its an amazing function in and of itself ! So, its no surprise our brains function as well as they do !

        my native language is English but it still looks like welsh to me.

        Which translated into welsh looks like-
