A word game.

We are now in Seattle. Our next flight leaves in 2 hours.

Alison and I came up with a word game.
Try to find a word that maximizes the following function:

let c = Number of consonants in word
let v = Number of vowels in word
let s = Number of syllables in word
fn(w) = c*v/s

Our top three words so far are:
3) Stretched (14)
2) Schooled (15)
1) Stealthed (18)

All Japanese words tend to  have a low score. French words are pretty high.

Double vowels and consonant blends are important to get a good score.

I am now judging all my friends by their score. People with high scores will be more important to me emotionally.
