That's fascinating. The capital letters at the beginning of sentences
I also read very quickly and yet I've never cared about extra spaces
after a period.

Not necessarily true. Sometimes I'll walk into an area and I'll have
sentences in my brain and I'm not sure where they came from -- then I
have to look around at all the various sources of text (magazines,
package labels, etc) to figure out where those sentences came from.
