    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:
    hippopotamonstrosesquipadaliaphobia
    pneumononultraumicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis
    antidisestablishmentarianism
    fluccinaucinihilipilification
    llanfairpwgwll.... etc. I'm sure has no b's in it, but a lot of ls. hm..

    List of countries alphabetically in africa?

    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.

    10, 36, 2197, 1, 371293, 1000000, ...
