    Seen it so many times now, it just appears to me as the jumbled mess that it is.

    I wasn't thinking, I've seen this text at least seven or so times now though, so it just appears as rubbish to me because I recognise it straight away.

    That's really quite cool. I read through the 1st line just thinking baaaaaad typo's.
    Read it no problem, but then I often skim read something the 1st time,
    then re-read it "properly" if I need details. So I guess this is why some see it and some don't...you gotta skim read. ;)
