Yes, I do have a sgtrane mnid. It is amazing that one can read that. And it wasn't even hard for me. I wonder if there is a difference between the numbers of men and women who can read it. And I agree that spelling may not be as important as many people think it is. But if everyone was using different spellings, then we probably would not be able to read it as quickly, because our mind wouldn't have a memorized combination of letters to draw from.
