    Wow, I really read fluff's paragraph really quickly.

    It does make sense that that's why it's so hard to do those unscrambler things. The first and last letters are not in the proper order. I also figured out phenomenal before I read cali's answer.

    "paomnnehil" was probably hard to read for most because it's misspelled (if you can call it that in this context?!). I should have been "paomnnehel" . (Like you spelled it correctly yourself.)

    It does slow down the reading for me anyway - perhaps because English isn't my 1st language? Also - I bet there are words that have the same letters, the same first and last letter but you can't figure out which of them this "scrambled word" it's supposed to be even if you have it in a sentence. Interesting though.
