Words of Wisdom

The Adam Smith Institute has a section for humour (it's British, okay?) which included this actual nugget of wisdom on January 31:

  • The Lord's Prayer has 66 words
  • The 10 Commandments have 179 words
  • The Gettysburg Address was just 286 words
  • The US Declaration of Independence was 1,300 words
  • The EU constitution, mercifully voted down by the French and Dutch electorates, was 67,000 words, plus another 60,000 words of appendixes.

There is much that can be said about this.
