phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy,

it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm.

While it is a neat trick, according to this source, no such research happened at Cambridge:

Even after typing it, this really looks hard to interpret.

These days, you cannot use Wikepedia as a solid refrence... Colleges have band that site for many reasons.

...I've been spelling like that for years and I've never heard a complaint!

Well now I'm complaining.

It's banned not band.

Perhaps, but it's the ultimate reference for any matter of pop culture, which this is certainly a part of. I would also argue that colleges disapprove of wiki because, right or wrong, it's the antithesis of the ivory tower complex that most venues of higher education like to perpetuate.
