Interesting, when I run google on "galavant" now, I only get 837 hits. Why would it change that dramatically in a few hours? Hmmmm.....

I ran the rest of the words previously posted, just for fun. Here's my comparison of the two google runs. Any ideas as ...[text shortened]... ascentia - 3 5
Nongangrenous - 128 85
phrontistes - 154 155
ravanastron - 166 159


They change because Google assigns you a server or something each time you visit. As they are always updating them, sometimes you will get a more updated one providing more or fewer results.

1) It must be common i.e. be found in a smallish dictionary
2) It must be spelt correctly (no slang stuff)
3) It has to have 5 or more letters


I'll start the bidding with the word
