I believe it gets harder when longer words are used as in:
Alultacy, Esilgnh sekaeprs wlil hvae snacifingit pmelbors anitalimissg.

Amazing nonetheless and the toughest part is the typing.

What struck me is that English is not my mother tongue, and still it was very easy for me to read. Speaking of which:

What did you mean by "anitalimissg" ???

Assimilating

Notice that I reversed the letter order between the first and the last one.

Thanks!
I think the issue was that I was not familiar with the word...
Anyway - this is fun!

Cheers

I have read something about it before, but yes it is amazing. It was really striking how easy it was to read that first text quote. There was only one or two words I actually had to stop up and think about. I wonder if this has any correlation with how associative ones brain and memory is? I think I dare safely say that my brain is very good at associative thinking.

But why does the text say that "only 55 out of 100" can understand? We are in majority, so why are we "only"?

Hm, better stop this thread now. I can see upcoming problems for the moderators if people start taking advantage of this dangerous research.

Wait, now we have 3 out of 3 mods who can read it. That's not good for the statistics, so we have to find at least one, preferrably two, mods who can't read it. Or maybe this is a requirement for becoming a mod at all?
