    I could read them with no trouble. That's one way to beat spell check at its own game!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    Yeah, the thing that threw me were the 3 letter words that couldn't be miss spelled and the occasional correctly spelled 4 letter word in the 2nd one.

    Probably just confused by their surroundings.

    Back in my day, this passage made the rounds on Friendster, Livejournal, and Xanga. Now, kindly remove yourself from the grass between my front door and the road.

    Had the grammar and syntax been scrambled, it would have be a whole different story, however.

    This is kind of similar to the 'completion' tasks that a proper self driving car AI system is going to have to master, gleaning an understanding of the environment all around a car on the move from partial and really dirty data.

    Yeah. Totally. To survive in the real world, a system/organism/whatever truly needs to see beneath the literal; to grasp the gist of what is really in front of it.

    In any event, though, I gotta say that the gibberish of the sample (I can't think of any other term to describe it) isn't exactly haphazardly composed. It's the work of one very talented dude/dudette.
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    Several years ago, I read that if the first and last letters of a word are in their proper place, all the other letters can be jumbled up in any order, and almost everybody will still understand the word. This is very helpful for swearing online and getting around 'net nanny' softwares. So next time somebody deserves to be called an alohsse online, remember this!

    I don't know about that. They just substituted numbers that looked like mirror images or bisected duplicates of the letters they replaced.

    Yeah, that's what the person did (or was it an artificial intelligence?). The thing is, it takes an artistic sensibility to be able to appreciate what words look like, and then be able to alter a word's shape enough to tickle our brains but not enough to totally confuse us as to what the word is.

    Of course, you can also use "upside-down l33t", or those things any 10 year-old with a pocket calculator knows; inputs like "7734" and "370455V"......
