It's interesting, no misspelled words like 'teh' or 'taht' show up in Wordcount. Words like 'teh' show up more often than many correctly spelled words on the internet. I wonder if the British National Corpus managed to avoid internet sources (although I don't see why they would want to do that, they're easy and cheap to process) or if the spelling has been cleaned up.

Echinoderms are radially symmetrical animals that are only found in the sea (there are none on land or in fresh water). Echinoderms mean "spiny skin" in Greek. Many, but not all, echinoderms have spiny skin. There are over 6,000 species. Echinoderms usually have five appendages (arms or rays), but there are some exceptions.

Echinoderms is also the wordount number for my birthday. Learn something new every day.

Seems that my birthday word (month/day) is 'born'. That's a bit 32161, isn't it? Combined with alphabetic conversion, though, this could be just the tool that numerologists need to prove their theories right! Of course, converting my initials yields 'muck', so I may be wrong.

I'd post a response to Steve@, but starting with 14903:
"kerry burglars yielding insensitive squads"
and at 5853: "edwards pence hits negotiating russians"

Still, Bush + Cheney = 2629 + 24290 = 26919
Kerry + Edwards = 14903 + 5853 = 20756
and, like golf, low score wins.

BTW, Nader = 41058

And don't think about dropping Cheney: McCain = 58959 and Giuliani = 54717

Haughey = 30941
Cardoso = 50613
And everybody loves 8126 16229 16229 48456.

I hope to find a subculture formed around interpreting the meaning of your name's position in line and how the words around it relate. I want an older woman clad in furs and silks to shake her head slowly as she clicks the mouse, and to then swivel around in her desk chair to face me, all the while explaining to me the reason my name is one word away from my recently-ex-boyfriend's moniker, and why we are seperated by the word nether.

What does is all mean?
