I am also one of the 55 that can read and understand what you have written; once you get started you do forget that the middle of the word is just a random jumble of letters Maurice

I`m one of the 55, I could actually read it pretty fast. Very interesting.

You mean we don`t need a Cambridge education to read that total mess?

I can read it, I guess that means I`m human after all!

...WOW!!! ...THAT`S WEIRD!!! ...I can read it clearly, just as fast as if all the words were spelled correctly!!!

You recognise that 55/100 means given a random sample of people more than half are going to be able to read it, which means more people are going to be able to read it than not. On the plus side, this means we are in the majority! :)
