Your brain is smarter than you think

I have seen this several times before and I never cease to be amazed at the power of the human mind:

Yeah, I knew that. I taught myself to speed read many years ago and learned to read paragraphs instead of words and sentances and get the gist of a page instead of minute details. Works well when reading bull shit novels and various government documents. But makes it tough to read tech data and I can't proof what I write for shit because I keep reading the paragraph or page instead of the words. What will throw me more than anything when I read is bad punctuation baad syntax. Missing words will flash up at me more than a misspelled one and I vener could spell worth a damn. If not for spell check every article I write would have to be proofed by sweetthing.
