Dear dyslexics,
The unforgivably excessive permutations of terminology and phraseology in the English language undoubtedly appear impenetrable to you. Etymological derivations from multitudinous antediluvian sources must engender bewilderment; to this problematic repetoire, the inexorable advancement of time bequeaths neologisms - nascent, oft-impenetrable linguistic units frequently defying logical explanation. The vagaries of the language must be vexatious to your lexically-disadvantaged prefrontal cortexes; irrespective of your valiant and most strenuous effort, abject failure to comprehend is unfortunately inevitable. In respect of your likelihood of assimilating the information contained within this unnecessarily-abstruse missive, I can only conclude – you’re fucked.

This is quite possibly the best post I have ever read.

Having a lot of dyslexic friends and family members
I can guarantee that they would understand this sentence just to prove you wrong. It's phrases like "Reading beading books bearing tears," that confuse.

And rightly so.

Cortices, not cortexes. It took me a while, but even you are not above Muphry's Law.

I blame Pinot Noir. Although, to be fair, I can count the number of times I've previously been called upon to pluralise 'prefrontal cortex' on the fingers of one foot.

But grr, well spotted, etc. I dare say there are some others, for the uber-pedantic.

(ftr, wiktionary reckons both 'cortices' and 'cortexes' are acceptable... Granted, I'm cherry-picking that result, as most other places don't)

haha, I suppose this was inevitable...
but.... but.... if one equates 'likelihood' with 'probability' - which one might well do, as they are largely interchangeable - then 'likelihood' could be assumed to run from 0 (impossible) to 1 (certain), encompassing all intermediary probabilities/likelinesses.
