Yesterday, I posted a, “psychological exercise” from a guest blogger, Lissa St. Clair and I told you I would give you the answer today:
If you missed it, here is the original post, “A Psychological Exercise,” so go ahead and check it out. We’ll wait here.
Oh, you’re back?
Okay, so a couple of you thought it was unusual because the paragraph was centered on the page:
I only did that, because when I formatted the post prior to publishing, it just looked better that way.
A few more of you thought you saw an apostrophe out of place, but…
That wasn’t it either.
So sorry. Not sorry.
Are you ready for the answer?
The letter ‘e’ is missing from the entire paragraph. The letter ‘e’ is the most frequent letter in the English language. A long passage, without any use of the letter ‘e’ (as the example above), is highly unusual. This exercise demonstrates the difficulty of searching for something that is not there.
So, there you have it.
