United stats

Well, this is entertaining. Amazon now lets you see the 100 most frequently used words in my book (as well as some other stats):


I'm thinking their word-counting program ignores the word "the" and its ilk. Also note that my rating on the Fog Index is ideal. Boo-yah!

Hmmm. I think this is perfect for an audition monologue. Observe (punctuation is my humble contribution).

Tom True, try two upon Vladimir. Want Williams work? Yes! Yet yourself!

Perhaps this piece should only be used when auditioing for the Salvador Dali made-for-TV movie special on Lifetime. I think I'm going to tell someone to go yet themselves today.

Applying the same lack of logic used in "the bible code" we see that Francis is a Beatles fan. And if size is any indication (snicker) thinks George is the best beatle.

I'd just like to report that The Da Vinci Code has a Fog Index of 9.1.

And Ulysses comes in at 9.0.

Neither of these, of course, is quite as difficult as Sonny Barger's Hell's Angel: The Life and Times of Sonny Barger, at 9.5.

That order of difficulty is the same when measured by the (made-up?) "Flesch-Kincaid Index."
