Have you ever encountered anyone in your life who just never seem to have any sign of "articulate gift". It would seem like the moment when God distributed the gift-of-words, they were still at their own bed dreaming about Pamela Anderson or something. Well, dont look now, they might just have Dyslexia.

Now is the part where i give a thing or two about the disease, im planning to skip this part so i can get some sleep but i want you guys to learn something from me everyday so what the hell, here it goes. Dyslexia is a neurological disorder, specifically a language learning disorder and even more specifically, difficulty in reading or writing. I should make it clear that dyslexics (people with dyslexia) are different from people who are really, naturally dumb and stupid. They exhibit the same intellectual qualities as their age groups or maybe even higher for some. The problem is, they just are having a hard time comprehending written language. Some examples of this is the confusion between the letters p,b,q and d; a dyslexic might also interchange letters like "does" is spelled into "dose" and even more interesting, they omit vowels such as "magic" is spelled as "mjc". One thing is for certain, these are not the ones you see in spelling competitions. In addition, they also perform very poorly in mathematics so they tend to compensate whatever is left of them like sports, drama (celebrities are dyslexics) and more.

I have to say that there are alot of Celebrities and Famous people with dyslexia but they have very good abilities to hide them from the public and much more, even if properly diagnosed, only some would be very honest enough to disclose it to the public. I found this list from robbrink.com and i thought it would be very nice to post it down here. Here they are :

  • Tom Cruise—Do you think he has trouble reading Dianetics?
  • Cher—I wonder if her plastic surgeon has Dyslexia too.
  • Bruce Jenner—He was a jock, what else do you expect?
  • Noel Ghallager (of Oasis)—Crazy that a guy who can’t spell can write songs that make millions of dollars.
  • Scott Adams (The guy who draws Dilbert the comic)—I guess that’s why he draws instead of writes.
  • Whoopi Goldberg—You could have a lot of fun misspelling her name. “Goldie Poohberg!”
  • Leonardo Da Vinci—The Mona Lisa was so famous that he didn’t need to know how to spell.
  • Michaelangelo—You have to be screwed up to want to paint the ceiling of a church for years anyway.
  • Thomas Edison—Would you fly a kite during a thunderstorm?
  • Albert Einstein —He was a dyslexic vegetarian. I wonder if he ever confused tofu for real meat.
  • Carl Lewis—Another jock.
  • W. B. Yeats—Did they have proofreaders back then? Poetry sucks anyway.
  • Woodrow Wilson—What president isn’t fucked up?
  • Jay Leno—Even his hair color is confused.
  • Nelson Rockefeller—Why does dyslexic get an ice skating rink in Manhattan named after him? Oh wait, he paid for it.
  • Erin Brockovich—No, not Julia Roberts. Surely, she’s a genius compared to the real Erin Brockovich.
  • Nolan Ryan—Jock number three on this list.
  • Henry Winkler—The Fonz. They must have known he was stupid when they wrote the part for him.
  • Winston Churchill—He also had a lisp. Double whammy—couldn’t write or speak properly.
That's it! Hope you guys enjoyed it. Some notes though, i didnt mean to offend anyone for this post. Im just after a plain good laugh that's why i imported the post on here.

    I am not offended, but I am dyslexic and want to mention that for some reason we tend to have higher IQs then the average, so you shut up. lol

    BTW, Edison was not the, "kite," person, that was, Benjamin Franklin.

    I am enjoying your blog,
    Thanks, addie

    I think that you need to reevaluate your life... there are a lot of craziness out there and being dyslexic is not one of them. People who are dyslexic tend to be smart in most other subjects then reading and writing. Hence, the professions of some of the people listed. Just chill and keep somethings to yourself.
