Alphabet Soup…For Real!

What if I wrote a program to generate ALL possible combinations of words (EVERY possible) English language? Well, here’s the result. A snapshot of my program running (electric bill hiking) 🙂 How many times will it run (Notice I put in the number of shuffles in each line)? The answer is, we have 26 letters (only! right?), so the combinations will be: (case-insensitive) 236773830007967588876795164938469376
or  26 decillion, or 2.3677383…x10^35! Ha!!! Insanely fun. But there’s a reason why I did this. I’ll explain later in another blog.
