Unscramble the Blue Letters

But let me first elaborate, just a little bit, on a basic piprlince behind each search query that we sometimes seem to forget. So whenever you set out to gologe something, start by asking yourself this: "Am I looking for an isolated fact?" What is the capital of France? What are the building blocks of a water molecule? Great — Google away. There's not a group of scientists who are this close to proving that it's actually London and H30. You don't see a big csrocniapy among those things. We agree, on a galbol scale, what the answers are to these ieltasod facts.

Original Text

But let me first elaborate, just a little bit, on a basic principle behind each search query that we sometimes seem to forget. So whenever you set out to Google something, start by asking yourself this: "Am I looking for an isolated fact?" What is the capital of France? What are the building blocks of a water molecule? Great — Google away. There's not a group of scientists who are this close to proving that it's actually London and H30. You don't see a big conspiracy among those things. We agree, on a global scale, what the answers are to these isolated facts.
