So I was like 'That’s cool', so I checked up on it and it turns out its not 100% true, it was never made at Cambridge
It was originally a letter to the new scientist magazine from Graham Rawlinson and he used the first two letters and last two.


However it does not work all the time
eg:


From Wiki scrambled
"Anidroccg to crad–cniyrrag lcitsiugnis planoissefors at an uemannd utisreviny in Bsitirh Cibmuloa, and crartnoy to the duoibus cmials of the ueticnd rcraeseh, a slpmie, macinahcel ioisrevnn of ianretnl cretcarahs araepps sneiciffut to csufnoe the eadyrevy oekoolnr."


unscrambled
"According to card-carrying linguistics professionals at an unnamed university in British Columbia, and contrary to the dubious claims of the uncited research, a simple, mechanical inversion of internal characters appears sufficient to confuse the everyday onlooker."

Still when it works it's pretty cool.

Climbing (Good work out much better than the gym)


This is my gym, 'cause the actual gym is boring and climbing is fun; pushing past your limits to get to the top, working out the path then forcing yourself up the wall cause you don’t want to give up or worse, fall off! And when you climb, you know you’re working a new muscle each week! I can feel a genuine improvement as I can climb for longer as well as climbing harder obstacles. 
Also, everything is leveled, so you can start at 1 and keep climbing harder walls. There are probably around a 100 climbing paths; at least at the place I go to it's about 10 minimum per level ranging from under hangs, over hangs, vertical walls, slanted walls, some with sticky out bits and some with sticky in bits! So far, there seems to be enough to keep me climbing different walls each week and gradually moving to harder colours. Overall it’s a good work out (just 2 hours of rock climbing means losing 1320 kcals!) and fun to do.

Archery (Great fun now I know how Robin Hood felt)



Archery, what a fun sport, although I think I'm getting gradually worse as the weeks go by. Maybe it's because they keep moving the targets back. As a beginner you start with a 18 pound bow, (by 18 pound I mean the string strength not the price) after a few months when you have an idea of what you’re doing you may want to get your own bow. A 30 pound bow is what you will want unless your super strong.
