    I couldn’t believe that I could actually understand what I was reading. The phenomenal power of the brain of the human mind according to a research at Cambridge University, it doesn’t matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be in the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without a problem.

    I tihnk :)

    (bet you couldn't read that?)

    Extraordinary balderdash

    Which proves that the longer the word, the less easy to read when jumbled.

    Then check the Oxford English dictionary, it's spelt balderdash.

    I have a degree in English Literature, not that that's especially relevant, but the line from T S Eliot below might have been a give away.
