Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm.

Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by itslef but the wrod as a wlohe.

Iiiiiiinteresting. This substantiates a thought I had while in the shower the other day. (I do a lot of random thinking while in the shower, both because I've just woken up and my brain tends to resemble a boggle game and also because the task doesn't really occupy my mind.) The younger generation, at any point in time, will question the accepted wisdom of the majority, most especially their parents and teachers. This is certainly true of me. I grew up with LIBERAL parents and teachers. If this generation grew up in a similar environment then this finding makes sense. Of course I'm hoping for a buffet style political force to come out of this. Take what works and leave what doesn't.

Well you won't win the South Park republicans by calling yourself a
metrosexual. (Oh the irony, especially since that episode aired last week.) But then, his stance on terrorism and the war pretty well guaranteed that anyway.
