Unscramble the Blue Letters

Yes, there are subtle differences here, but the nhaum race car driver is able to go out and drive an amazingly staf line, without the benefit of an algorithm that sopcmrea the trade-off between going as fast as possible in this corner, and shaving a little bit of time off of the straight over here. Not only that, they're able to do it lap after lap after lap. They're able to go out and consistently do this, pushing the car to the limits every single time. It's extraordinary to tcawh. You put them in a new car, and after a few laps, they've found the fastest line in that car, and they're off to the craes.

Original Text

Yes, there are subtle differences here, but the human race car driver is able to go out and drive an amazingly fast line, without the benefit of an algorithm that compares the trade-off between going as fast as possible in this corner, and shaving a little bit of time off of the straight over here. Not only that, they're able to do it lap after lap after lap. They're able to go out and consistently do this, pushing the car to the limits every single time. It's extraordinary to watch. You put them in a new car, and after a few laps, they've found the fastest line in that car, and they're off to the races.
