Weird Wordy Things


1)  Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch procejt, it deosnt mttaer waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer are in the rghit pclae. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter.

I apologise to all foreign readers for that one - it will probably send your translate function into hyperventilate mode!

2)  Did you know that there is a seven letter word in the English language that contains ten words without rearranging any of its letters?   THEREIN: the, there, he, in, rein, her, here, ere, therein, herein?

How amazing is that. I had no problems at all reading number 1, a bit of a mind blower. And number 2 is fascinating. Thanks for playing with our minds..haha

Hi, just discovered you via Abby's blog. Love it that you're a collector of Ladybirds. Me too! Laughed about your son and Beano. My daughter is crazy for Beano and her annuals and mags are taking over her room!

Thanks for your fascinating facts!
