Sexcept

From this:

Is it just me, or does the word "sex" pop out at you if you look at that word without trying to determine what sentence it forms?

  1. Here's what my brain first saw when it looked at the last sentence in your post:

    xz xz xzxz xz, xz xzxz xze xzxz "sex" xzp xzt xz xzu xz xzu xzxz xz xzxz xzxz xzxzxzt xzxzxz xz xzxzxzxze xzxz xzxzxzxz xz xzxzs?

    So I guess, yes. It's not just you.

  3. It might be a guy thing. My wife said that "sex" was the second thing she saw, after "hairdryer". Ironic since she usually air dries her hair.

  4. Actually, I noticed the "exce" I think it has more to do with the shape of the letters than anything else. But that's the side of me that has done some graphic work and font work talking.

  5. Nope, I read the sentence as it really is (I don't think I got the hair part right until the second read), and then noticed the "sex" angle. Hmm, does that mean I'm an ubergeek?

  6. I read it as it was first and only noticed the 'sex' part after you mentioned it... is something wrong with me? (or just you people)

  7. Must be you, it didn't jump out at me.

  8. I noticed "use" and then "ptth" because it seemed so wrong.

    I think that people notice sex because the way the letters are shaped too.
