Point of order: Having read through a bunch of these, I think there's a bit of a problem of people posting maybe a dozen posts apart and still remembering words from the last one they did. Sometimes a word or phrase will disappear for a while and then reappear in a way that seems unlikely. Sorry if this has been addressed already. I admit I have not read the entire thread.

@12obin: I've had that impression, too. I don't think it's a problem, though. The sentence is still highly plastic.

A possible addition to boost mutation rate without intentionally introducing changes would be to wait a few minutes after reading before typing it again.

Hmm. I tried watching a 3-minute YouTube video between reading and posting, but I still managed to remember it perfectly.

Excellent idea, I added it to the OP.

Dammit, I was ninja'd. Please ignore this post.

Or maybe I wasn't ninja'd, because the previous post is four hours before mine... I don't know, I'm too confused. Just pay no attention to this. You saw nothing.
