Another one of these, but this one is hard, and probably no-one has seen it before.

find the next integer in the sequence:
5, 4, 3, 1, 1, 2, 3, 1, 3, 0, 1, 4, 5, 2, 0, 2, 0, 2, ...

I think I will instead reduce the difficulty a notch.

The numbers correspond to letters of the alphabet:

5 A's
4 B's
3 C's
etc...

how many S's?

I can't think of any long work with so many B's in it:
pneumononultraumicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis
antidisestablishmentarianism
fluccinaucinihilipilification
llanfairpwgwll.... etc. I'm sure has no b's in it, but a lot of ls. hm..

I thought it might be the number of tiles of each letter in a scrabble set.
But one of them is 0, its not that.

Um, ( the number of tiles of each letter in a scrabble set )- 1 ?

It doesn't have anything to do with Scrabble.

It's not 4.
