A discussion of weird word count behavior at Google.

It seems reasonable that we have to use deduction to deal with nature--nature doesn't talk. It's almost reasonble that we have to use deduction for human institutions--not only are people frequently too busy to explain what's going on, but when you've got lots of them, you have emergent effects. It does *not* seem reasonable to have to do experiments to figure out how a computer program reacts to its simplest commands.
