Just a cross-post, since some of us were talking about this subject -
numerology - a while ago.

Read and enjoy!

Some silly people were assigning number to letters:
a=6, b=12, c=18, etc.
and coming up with words that have the number 666.

"New york", "kissinger", "computer"

I wrote a wee script to see just how many words in
/usr/share/dict/words (See! Not totally OT. That file
is in most common linux distros!) add up to 666 using
some linear assignment of numbers to the alphabet.

There's quite a few (1087 actually).

There's some real good ones:
a=3, conservationists, uncontrollability
a=6, ejaculation, scandinavian, somewhere, flatulent, horrors
a=6, indecipherable, insanity, unwelcome, vacuuming, witchcraft
a=9, accursed, jesus, jewish, lucifer, nuts, preacher, gospel
a=18, hex, academia, dies, egghead, flame

But my favourites:

a=18 Nick, a=9 Rout



Mau e ki, "He aha te mea nui?"
You ask, "What is the most important thing?"
Maku e ki, "He tangata, he tangata, he tangata."
I reply, "It is people, it is people, it is people."
