A sentence designed to frustrate dsylexics - RonO's Ramblings

Jan. 19th, 2007 01:25 pm A sentence designed to frustrate dsylexics

Just now, while browsing wikipedia, I came across a sentence in an article about The Three Hundred and Thirty File Years War which was clearly, albeit probably accidentally designed to confuse those of us who suffer from dyslexia:

Cromwell pushed on until mainland Cornwall was in the hands of the Parliamentarians.

(Obviously, the sentence is actually dealing with the English Civil War, which apparently leads into the 335 year war).

I once had a similar experience, which almost caused me to get lost in Lansing Michigan, where I-69 and I-96 cross (and briefly run together). I was looking for an exit on one of the Interstates, while on a detour off to the side of the other one, and was very worried about the exit numbers which made it look like I'd missed my exit.
