Lend more?

Nope.

I won't tell you my real name, but it anagrams to "EMETICALLY WARM HEDONISM". Which creeps me right the fuck out.

Apparently I'm so un-anagramable that it doesn't even bother.

Jinn's anagram name is
I suppose there's really only what.. 4! possibilities? Right? 24?

EDIT:

Looked it up, with a repeated letter, the number of anagrams is reduced.. it's 4! / 2! = 12 possibilities.

As an exercise, wrote them all out.. boorrrrrring

As an aside, I considered the likelihood of someone dedicated reverse-engineering Redlemon's entry and retrieving his actual name, and I'm kinda a nerd for computability.


EMETICALLYWARMHEDONISM is 22 characters, so upper limit of calculations is 22!.

However, there are a number of repeated letters:

E E E
T
I I
C
L L
Y
W
A A
R
H
D
O
N
S
M M M

Leaving us 22! / 3! * 1! * 2! * 1! * 2! * 1! * 1! * 2! * 1! * 1! * 1! * 1! * 1! * 1! * 3!

Which simplifies to 22! / 3! * 2 * 2 * 2 * 3! or 22! / 288 =

3,902,780,304,783,360,000

Even making some assumptions about length of anagram words (>2 letters, with notable exceptions like Le, Hu, Ha, etc) and number of words (2 or 3), it's academically but not pragmatically computable. You could write an algorithm that spit out 'likely' 2 and 3 word anagrams with greater than 4 letters that have matches against a first name in boy/girl birth name popularity database but you'd still need a human to ascertain if the middle and last names seemed relevant.

And after all of that, you'd still not know with 100% certainty because in a data set that large (3 quintillion?) you are likely to hit quite a few that are full proper names.

as for my real name, its anagram is much better: STARK BRICK TRAUMA.
I do seem to have that effect on people.

Nascent oranges sound delicious! As do nectar egos.... Yum.

Are nectar egos made from nascent oranges, you think?

NERD!!!!!

Actually, the thought crossed my mind before I posted. I'm impressed that the VERY NEXT POST in the thread did the math for me.
