Only people who scan read can do this easily. Personally I didnt even notice your little trick until after I had read that sentence. But I would imagine if you are the type who sounds out each word in your head as you read, you would have some difficulty.

Law school makes you a fast reader :)

Reminds me of a little exercise I remember from school. they give you a sentence and tell you to count how many E's are in it. Everyone gets it wrong because one of the words is missing an e, and everyone just assumes it's there. Then they tell you that younger kids just learning letters do the test flawlessly because they only see the sentences as bunches of letters.

It would be harder for people who use English as a second language (unless 1337 is your first Very Happy). But after reading enough posts on the forums here, you tend to expect the words to be spelled incorrectly. I'm amazed when a whole post is actually correct, even when I write it. Laughing

lol, cute.

Scary to think I had no problems reading that...

Who needs spelling when ones brain can make it out regardless hehe ( of course you'd have to have a good vocabulary to begin with )

No.. As I posted it almost as soon as I read it I don't think that I have already started a thread on this.

Look up "Top-Down Processing" if you want to learn more about how humans read things.
