I just wanna see if it is true that not everybody can read this:

"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. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! if you can raed tihs forwrad it."

So, does anybody have any trouble reading that paragraph at all? Just curious.

Cordial in a bottle, but doesn't taste as good.

I claim that is bushllit.

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.

No, but it surely is more important.

The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm.

No, because then this sentence would be readable:
No, bwoghde tfgn tals sadkfhffe wiued be rsdfsfvfle.

And also, the letters in the middle there are not just randomly thrown around. Compare bushllit with bilshlut for example. Which one is easier to see which word is meant? Right. "hmuan mnid" is not so tricky. "haumn mnid" a bit worse. "Cmabrigde Uinervtisy", sure. "Cgrimabde Uretinivsy" not so much. In fact, you'll notice if you look that not one single vowel has switched place with another vowel.

Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

Not true. It's a pattern matching thingy. But a word with the correct letters but wrong order will trigger enough matches to give is a good idea of the word, and then combined with the information on what the word before was we can guess. All subconsciously, of course. Having the vowels int he right order also seems important.

So, does anybody have any trouble reading that paragraph at all? Just curious.

Define "trouble". :)
So prove me wrong, then.

I think that the sentence was written under the assumption that the letters in the original word are still the same, just the order of them change within the word.
I'm asian.

Yes, but the statement was "only the first and last need to be correct, the rest can be a total mess". I argued against this, by first showing that it must have the same letters and that indeed the order still needs to be somewhat correct. Most importantly it seems that the vowels need to come in the same order. So the statement "total mess" is wrong.

Man I hate it when people don't read THE WHOLE POST before answering.
So prove me wrong, then.
