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