The idea though, damik, is that the first and last letters need to be the same, otherwise the accuracy of the reading goes down exponentially.

It does demonstrate how many of us read, though.

Agreed. I was showing a more complex exercise we had to go through - would have helped if I had explained though - still I thought everyone could read my mind; after all my wife thinks I should be able to read hers! - 'nother subject :-)

Yes and the reasons why there are so many languages and variants including the latest text messaging

My fascination at the fact that Greg has exactly 8000 more posts that Damik is somewhat tempered by their belief that the above outfit is an improvement on the original. I’m not sure whether I ought to feel miffed or not (probably depends upon what mood she’s in).

Oh well the 8000 difference has changed - obviously I'm not keeping up. As long as you don't let being miffed slip into paranoia. I think I'd be happy to have hair like that - well more than I have now - sigh!

And on a second look at the picture, I think the shoes are over the top, far too formal!
