That's not completely accurate. Case-in-point: me. I don't know about the rest of you, but it takes me an excruciatingly long time (15 seconds) to read the above. If the letters were in the right order, it would have taken less than 2.

Hmm...I can read it at at the same rate as I could if they were in normal order :?

I've heard that about one million times.

And people always keep on finding it amazing >_>

but what happens if you cant read very well and end up having to sound it out it would be like to say house but spelt huose

whose lol and yea its true but sometimes if they are odd looking and do not sound as they look at first and last letter then it gets a bit odd like wlohe most people wouldnt say whole because they are used to having a h next to the w to get the whoo sound so it makes it odd and wrod jsut lkoos worng (see waht i did tehre)(lol look i did it again :D)

Or did you mean you spent 3 hours modeling it...
Correctamundo. Although, in total, it took four and half. The half was essentially wasted on what I thought was a problem and turned out false.
That render took over 3 hours?!
Heavens, no! Rendering take seconds. As you apply the textures and materials, all you do is refresh the image (updating as it calls this (F5)), and it takes a maximum of five seconds, if that. Depends on the complexity of the applied texture.

:( ive not had one in a while :D lol there tasty though :D
There are conflicting poll results on whether this is the UK Nation's favourite biscuit. In the surveys in which it leads, the Bourbon follows in second place.

Interesting etymology to the Bourbon, and if you trust it, check out its Wiki.

I am the reciprocal of a lawyer

Completely incorrect usage of reciprocal. In a non-mathematical context, it means interchangeable. You are clearly not interchangeable with a lawyer.

If you were going for the mathematical sense of the word, then if I multiplied you by a lawyer, I would get 1. Nuh-uh. Nor are you a lawyer with a 1 hovering over your head.

And sabrown, "reciprocal" hardly fits into the statement that you're not a lawyer.

1. Concerning each of two or more persons or things.

2. Interchanged, given, or owed to each other: reciprocal agreements to abolish customs duties; a reciprocal invitation to lunch.

3. Performed, experienced, or felt by both sides: reciprocal respect.

4. Interchangeable; complementary: reciprocal electric outlets.

5. Grammar. Expressing mutual action or relationship. Used of some verbs and compound pronouns.

6. Mathematics. Of or relating to the reciprocal of a quantity.

7. Physiology. Of or relating to a neuromuscular phenomenon in which the excitation of one group of muscles is accompanied by the inhibition of another.

8. Genetics. Of or designating a pair of crosses in which the male or female parent in one cross is of the same genotype or phenotype as the complementary female or male parent in the other cross.

EDIT: Damn pyro beat me to it.

Is one of your hobbies pointing out my mistakes?

Wow, sabrown, your semantically lacking as well as legally inept. You do interesting plugins, though.

Inverse implies that your an opposite of a lawyer, which means people now may think of you as a prosecutor.

1. Reversed in order, nature, or effect.

2. Mathematics. Of or relating to an inverse or an inverse function.

3. Archaic. Turned upside down; inverted.

Mabye you should just say "I am not a lawyer" instead of failing in these attempts to redeem yourself :roll:

Please don't provoke Pyrochild again.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but pyrochild is not being provoked by your plugins on the whole, but rather the few details you seem uncontrollable to keep out. The concept of the plugins are quite good.
