Whenever I enter the minimum two letters, I always get at least one real word. I feel like Charlie Brown right now.

I think there is a new game to be played here:
enter in any combination of letters, and your score is the number of EXTRA letters it tags on to your root combination.

I entered "grum" and got "grumscaporialitegramewooted". That's 27-4=23 points.

Aposty gets 30 points for pancakeniontograplatenclishooristions. That's going to be tough to beat.

The same concept of a markov chain has been applied to whole words instead of letters.

A professor named Bruce Ellis wrote a program to do this and named it Mark V Shaney. He then pulled a famous prank where he passed Mark off as a real person on a usenet group, spitting out semi-coherent "thoughts" based on the text already there.

I have discovered the secret of world peace. For any touchy international situation, simply enter the the interested parties and presto! a bloodless winner.

For example:

palestine -> palestinethinfrandificaptott (10 points)
israel -> israelevensatiatorinesupatorier (19 points)

a clear winner, although:

sharon: sharonsevernatestubicyclain (15 points)
arafat: arafativensaterearmsialidamson (18 points)

indicating that Arafat has a future beyond Palestine.

I will allow grum@work and remlapm to share my Nobel.

dging - the act of being dg?

Funny how many of the words look like real words when you first look at them, until your brain computes that nothing is in the right order.
