I got the following from a friend recently. It was one of those things
that get forwarded for their apparent cleverness. Described as a "Brain
Study," I think it's just a walloping good example of the Stroop
Effect, in the article Gene posted a little earlier. If you're sharp &
quick, you're supposed to be able to read it without much effort.
Probably a "no brainer" for this group.

A friend of mine wonders:
"So if you have a list of items on a website, printed document, or other
means of communication, and someone doesn't notice one of them, it seems to
me that moving everything to the top in bold blinking colored fonts, while
it might briefly solve the problem, does so by causing the problem for the
next two times . . . is there a term for what I'm talking about, and is it
a concept in use?"
