I’ve tried several searches on the archive to find Cecil’s column where he mythbusts the oft-forwarded e-mail that said that there was a study taken at some university which proved that if you scrambled all the letters in a word, except the first and last, then it would still be legible to a human. But I can’t find it.
Does the archive rotate through articles? I’d thought that it had everything that had ever been uploaded. (Or am I going batty and Cecil never did a column on this subject?)
