Unscramble the Blue Letters

And it tunrs out, if you present the image on the left to a doctor, on average, they find about 39% of the high-risk regions that could explode or block your haert and kill you. On the right, we can do a little better, and they're able to find 62% of these high-risk, dangerous regions. But we can do even better, simply by changing the colors. The rainbow cloor map is a sin most dtorocs and astronomers and physicists are guilty of using. (lhgaus) And it doesn't focus the best qualities of your visual system. The human sstyem can see brightness variation, contrast ... not really good at that whole "green-yellow-blue" thing.

Original Text

And it turns out, if you present the image on the left to a doctor, on average, they find about 39% of the high-risk regions that could explode or block your heart and kill you. On the right, we can do a little better, and they're able to find 62% of these high-risk, dangerous regions. But we can do even better, simply by changing the colors. The rainbow color map is a sin most doctors and astronomers and physicists are guilty of using. (Laughs) And it doesn't focus the best qualities of your visual system. The human system can see brightness variation, contrast ... not really good at that whole "green-yellow-blue" thing.
