Une tétine qui calme rapidement les pleurs de bébé et un petit texte :

"Cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy.

The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm."

Everyone knows this about this amazing fact, but... try to read this exerpt from a STATISTICAL PAPER in the same way:

"Miittluvraae asilyans sattes an idtenossiy ctuoonr epilsle is the itternoiecsno of a panle pleralal to the xl-yapne and the sruacfe of a btiiarave nmarol dbttiisruein."

Pretty hard to figure out what it means, heh? This is because the original text itself is not any better :) Here it is -

"Multivariate analysis states an isodensity contour ellipse is the intersection of a plane parallel to the xy-plane and the surface of a bivariate normal distribution."
