Our engineer has it posted over his desk. He finds it "very profound" and the "root behind your anglo-saxan unbridled hot unvirginated teen in this troubled society" Way too much schooling I thinks.....

Although, I do feel that spelling is important.

Yup! I saw that some time ago in an email. I think that the result of an open and free thinking mind. Not closed to alternative ways of doing things.

thats one of my second favourite tricks to the english language. my favourite one is one that i read in a readers digest. you start out reading in english and while your reading it it explains how moving letters to different spots and pronouncing them a bit differently that you will be speaking german, and by the end of reading it goes from english to mixed to german. its really neat. and you can understand the last few sentences. out minds are one thing that scientist will never 100% understand.

Readers that are proficient should be able to read this but only with the Context, Orthographic, Meaning, and Phonological reading processing systems in place.
