How come we all read this, if our mind didn't want to play with it. :biggrin:

Because we read what our mind thinks is there because we add or change the letters based on years of knowing these words. But when we come across a word we are unfamiliar with, like all of those new words added in 2009, we have a harder time placing them because they don't exist in the dictionary in our heads. Did that make sense? :lol:
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.
