I received the above in my Facebook feed a few days ago. I also received it, around the same time, from a friend in an email. I’m not sure what message they are trying to give. Was it a test to see if I was intelligent? Is it about them? Could they read it and thus they were bragging?  Or was it a fun curiosity to occupy my time?

What does reading it prove? Are we brighter than the next person if we meet this challenge and they don’t? Is reading it a translatable skill or is it a fun, dead end? Maybe those unable to read this have different talents unrelated to this ability?

Translated, it Reads:

This message serves to prove how our minds can do amazing things! Impressive Things! In this beginning it was hard, but now, on this line, your mind is reading it automatically with out even thinking about it. Be Proud! Only certain people can read this. Please forward if you can read this 🙂 …

I’m glad the internet is easy to use for a search. You find all sorts of stuff on the net! Makes puzzles easy to solve! Is being able to search a talent as well?
