  1. Where did you pull this from? – Someone obviously wants to sound smart. The 26 letters of the alphabet can make an infinite number of combinations, it all depends on how many you string together. The number quoted above limits the length of the combination to roughly 18 letters. Besides, there are only about 700,000 words in the english language, of which only about 200,000 are non scientific/medical. Furthermore, most people have a vocabulary of less than 30,000 and commonly use between 3000 and 5000.

  2. I’ve said this somwhere before, but… – …if you don’t care, then don’t post a bloody comment!

  3. I think ik… – On the damn kalkulator just press 26 faktorial (26!), and that would give u ur answer.

  4. nice math – actually if u mutiply 26*26= 676 and there a lot more combanaintions than that for a fact

  5. factorial – actually it would be 26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26*

  6. 26! – The factorial of 26 is 4.032914611 x 10 to the power of 26. The number expressed in the ‘fact’ is only 4.0329 x 10 to the power of 22. No, I’m not a nerd, or a geek, or whatever other slang for geek you american’s have, I just know how to use a calculator

  7. Me again… – And doopaflagen, 26 to the power of 26 is 6.15611958 x 10 to the power of 36. Either way the ‘fact’ is looked at, it is wrong…
