  • Pythagoras' theorem – 24 words.
  • Lord's Prayer – 66 words.
  • Archimedes' Principle – 67 words.
  • 10 Commandments – 179 words.
  • Gettysburg address – 286 words.
  • US Declaration of Independence – 1,300 words.
  • US Constitution with all 27 Amendments – 7,818 words.
  • EU regulations on the sale of cabbage – 26,911 words.
An illustration both of why the EU is doomed, and also why bureaucrats will always run amok without the strictest of limitations on their room to maneuver.
