Now Something On The Lighter Side...

I thought you might enjoy this little bit of silliness this morning...don't want you to think I'm all serious and stuff, ya know?

ALZHEIMERS' EYE TEST

Count every " F " in the following text:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS...

(SEE BELOW)



HOW MANY ?

WRONG, THERE ARE 6 -- no joke. READ IT AGAIN ! Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.

The reasoning behind this is below.

The brain cannot process "OF".

Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!



Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius. Three is normal, four is quite rare.

Olny srmat poelpe can raed tihs. 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 deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

Well I got all 6 so does that make me a genius? (whispers .. I've seen it before, hehe)

The paragraph thing floors me every time I read that one. I think some of the marketers out there use the same method in their Ad's. (hahaha again)

Sure would like to be watching the rain with you. Supposed to rain here, maybe, today. We'll see.

Ok I'll have that cup of coffee!
Cya later Jim

Thanks Blondie...for dropping by. I have seen it before to, but it was just too good to pass up, ya know?
Wish you were here to watch the rain as well, but at least you have your coffee. That's a good thing!

Holly sh*t, caught only three, so this inability of "of" processing affects non native English speakers as well. Strange huh? :-)

HermitJim said...

Hey sinip...thanks for dropping by! It is strange, isn't it? The human brain can be trained to do so much, we are constantly dumbfounded by some of the things it won't do.

I think in my case, just getting into gear is sometimes one of the things in that category!

Thanks for the comments and come back again. Always glad to have readers comment on the post.
