I came across this same info-nugget a couple weeks ago and thought it was interesting too - so I posted it to my blog. Then a friend posted a comment explaining why its complete bunk. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.


Slashdot posted some info on this as well, they then posted another example where it was impossible to read the messed up type.

I forget the reason, but it had something to do with words that we know vrs. words we don't know, or it might have had something to do with the length of the words.
