I call bullshit on the “55 out of 100 people” thing, because this has been circulating on the internet for over a year now, and I’ve never seen the “55 out of 100” figure until now. Besides, if the human mind is so amazing, wouldn’t this be a mediocre discovery if you only have a slightly higher than random chance of being able to read it?
Unless you can source the study for the 55 out of 100 people figure, I’d suggest not repeating that myth.
I thought the point was that everyone could read it due to the first and last letter of each word being in the right place (like the passage states).
