Amazing

Probably many of you will have had this sort of e-mail - the one where all the letters are jumbled up but you can somehow make sense of it. Anyway, for those who haven't, try this:
Only great minds can read this
This is weird, but interesting!

Re: Amazing

Doesn't surprise me - it's quite obvious (to me) when reading books, as I'll read a word and think 'hmm, that doesn't make sense' only to re-read it and find it was actually a different word. Causality comes to mind - my brain always interprets it as 'casualty' first until I take a closer look at it.

Re: Amazing

...but incorrect spelling probably jumps out at you, it generally does with me. Ok nobody's perfect but I often proof read stuff for people at work.
I haven't checked but I imagine if some of the words in that piece were incorrectly spelt they would not be so obvious.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

If I include a translation, does that mean I can avoid being reported by Oldjim?
