Who needs spellcheck?

I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I'm wdgtieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in what oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is that the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh? Yaeh, and I awlyas toughht slpeling was ipmorantt!

Besides, we have products that look like they should read UMM! TOE JELLY, Kuiet, Oral Thrills, Teal, Aireal, Say Wha, etc. Actually, it may be more audiophoolish to ban Spellcheck.

What other products come to mind?
Lugnut glad to hear from you! well if Cmabrigde Uinervtisy says it deosn't mttaer in what oredr the ltteers in a wrod are I have to believe them cause it didnt take me one second more to read your post than it would normally take(with all the correct spelling). How very interesting.
Now some dude is going to argue that MP3's are just as good as CD "cause the mind can fill in the missing stuff"
Interesting article.
I due.
Amzanig! I'm dmubfnouded!
Spellers of the world, untie!

I agree, it didn't take me any longer to read it too. good one. thanks Lugnut.
But isn't it MORE difficult to write, IF the actual letters in any word MUST be the same anyway -- albeit in "creative" order ex the first & last?

For a moment there I thawt we kood do away wid speling altogether -- strike it from the korikolum, so to speak.

Good one, Rossta
with my dyslexia it looks normal :^)
You are on to something. I wonder what else doesnt matter: money, politics, brand of deoderant? If you take a bit longer perspective, say 10,000 years you can easily identify what is important (very little), then begin to move in a bit to 1,000, then 100, then 10 years, then 1 year - it helps you not sweat the small stuff.

10,000 years is really just a blink. All of recorded history would be just the top milimeter of paint on top of the the worlds tallest skyscraper, compared to all of known time past being the whole building. So it really doesnt take long to find the ideal speaker position.

Sorry, jet-lagged after after a winning Vegas trip and haven't heard a good stereo in a week :)
Awsum thred, Lugnut. Thankxs!!!
Man, I was hoping there would be some additional components to ad to my short perverted list. I don't know why but I have a problem with buying gear when the name turns me off. At the top of my list is the AH! stuff. Their CDP's will always be Toe Jelly to me. Let's have some of that good old jax2 humor here. Life is too short to not make fun of ourselves. I love my Linn gear but if Ivor keeps using K's to such abundance in the naming of all his Krap I won't buy anymore.
Hi Lugnut,

I ran across that online about a year ago.....that is kind of neat how it can be read by mixing up the letters. See Ya...
It's a feeble mind that spells a word only one way.

Wow, that's pretty amazing research! I read it as if it were typed correctly.

I've heard old friends of Ozzy Osbourne say the same thing about him. Just pay attention to the first and last word of his rambling and you'll get exactly what he means.
Hipe yawr hsckgg a gffd doy. I codt sleel my wuy oat of a wat peaodr bug.
LOL. Purseanaly I don't need no stinkin spelchekka, what I needs is a gramma chekka!
Actually, if you try this enough, you will find that the theory does not always work---as in the second post with the word "untie" for "unite". Or "Deos tihs sunod derousangly lkie sevibuvrse caleteribon of artamuesim?" In ohter wrods, it is not to hrad to do wtih sroht wrods.
In me count, too syntax check.
Dunno' about Spellcheck, but I could use Babblefish to translate some of this
crap you guys are writing. Maybe their translator needs another section:
English to Webspeak.


PS Hey Newbee, my Grampa checked out your Gramma and said she was
pretty hot, but no spring chicken. Look who's talking!
Doesn't James Brown talk like this?

I have a spelling checker,
it came with my PC.

It plane lea marks four my revue,
miss steaks I ken knot sea.

I've run this poem threw it,
an Yule bee pleased two no.

It's let her perfect inn its weigh,
my checker tolled me sew.

What "lugnut" forgot to mention is that the "spelling gimmick" only works if the first and last letter of each misspelled word are the same as in the real word. Did I mispell misspelled?
No Papertrail, but apparantly you didn't read Lugnut's post thoroughly, heheh. And I quote...

"it deosn't mttaer in what oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is that the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae."

Do they have spellcheck for Pig Latin?
pretty clever,thanks Lugnut!
Lugnut and Gunbei---All apologies. I had seen this before and did not entirely reread this particular post, so I had forgotten. Jsut tie me to the "Wihppnig Psot" but please don't put me "Bcak on the Cahin gnag".

You actually bumped into another human brain "thingy" accidentally too. Now, this is with humor.....the human ability to not read...skip...not listen...skip. Leads to lots of misunderstandings. Har har

I'm really disappointed that nobody has responded to what I find great humor in. The naming of high end audio components. Some really respected gear is so absurdly named that I would never consider owning them.
Lugnut, go back and read my post of 4-7, if you havn't already. And yes as they say, "I eased off a brain fart". But I still maintain that the spell gimmick only works under controlled situations.
I didn't mean to offend. Really. I just find the human brain to be a mysterious and funny organ. I guess I could beg for some examples about equipment names but I won't. I'm still not buying anything that reminds me of toe jelly. Please, no offense intended to those that own the AH products.
Lugnut, i may be being presumptious, but absolutely no offense was taken...and as a teacher of literature and a student of languange, I find the human brain and its capacity for understanding and misunderstanding to be fascinating. Would "toejam" or toemarmelade" have a more positive conotation than "toejelly"? :)
Hey fellas, for a guy like me that routinely purposely reads things backwards or pronounces everything I see phonetically, Lugnut's discovery is like sweetened slop for the hog.
Bye the wey; eye cense that eye mite bee Miss take in ass eye no that spell cheque will sea things writ here wright.
Unclejeff...With respect to your last comment...Isn't it wonderful how an "error correction" process can recover a message perfectly dispite many transmission errors.
Toemarmelade, LOL!

Gimme summa dat!
Gunbei---Were you a member of "gimme summa dat" too? It's nice to run into a brother. I was class of 75.
Back in the 70's I graduated from the National Institute of Female Pleasuring, Summa Cum Loud!

Class of '76, Bro!

Marco, I tried my ass off to get into that one, but I only got as far as Mona Cumma Nada.
I think you guys have smoked some Toejelly. lol
That's OK Dean, Mona's long forgotten you by now. It's the "trying
hard" that's the fun part, eh? You did try hard, didn't you? If not, it's
never too late to bone-up on your technique. Quit jerkin' off and start
practicing! A tongue is a terrible thing to waste. Just put your head to the
grindstone and keep at it and you will be richly rewarded. You can lick this
setback man, I know you can!

The fruits of your effort are evident when you show up for class [these days work] the next morning looking and sounding like you just came from the dentist. Nothing like an uncontrollably sore tongue and lips to give away your previous nights escapades. That and a very sore chin to go along with it.

But on the bright side, the cute college interns and the lusty women in the office have seen that look before and know the cause.

Pain and effort in a noble cause is often rewarded.
Boy this thread turned while I was on vacation, you guys need supervision. Should have expected it - folks who love music and beauty, are passionate about it, it in all its forms.
Dean and Marco's exchange reminds me of a time I'd, uhmmm, polished my chin with a girlfriend earlier in the day. Much later while sitting at the bar an annoying object worked its way from the back of my tongue to where I could grab it with my fingers. I absent mindedly wiped my finger on the drink napkin and there was this curly object. Some gal sitting a barstool away must have been watching me because as I lifted my head and we made eye contact her expression showed her utter disgust. Without missing a beat I raised my eyebrow along with my glass and explained, "Really fine floss". Ahhh, priceless.
"Utter disgust"??!!!!

That was definitely her loss, Pat. I would have thought she would have been giving you a wink and the green light when she saw the fine floss on your napkin!

The girls must have really enjoyed your chin polishing skills, given the beautiful nest of hair on your chin, heheh.
What speakers with a weird name do ya'll listen to while chin polishing?
