...it's sort of scary that reincarnation dustbunny is not a Googlewhack because it comes up with six results.

Videoconference reincarnation: 43 results

"videoconference reincarnational": one result

I have finally managed a successful Googlewhack:

cytoplasmic abdominothorax

What possibly helps is that 'abdominothorax' is only on three pages in total...

Yeah, the revised Whack Value for cytoplasmic abdominothorax is 804k (804,000)- cytoplasmic gives 268,000 results but abdominothorax only gives 3. 3 * 268000 = 804000, a relatively low score.

Higher Whack Values are given to Whacks that use more common words:

reincarnational:      1290
videoconference: x  204000
               -----------
               263,160,000 (263M)
two hundred sixty three million, one hundred sixty thousand


Although that's the Revised Whack Scoring System, which scores a heck of a lot higher than the Classic Whack Scoring System.

Wow, larger result sums really do increase the final value dramatically. I really don't know how you manage to produce things like 'reincarnational videoconference', though - randomly?

By taking two words that didn't seem logical that they'd be together, then modifying the trial one word at a time based on the results to whittle it down until I score a Whack.

Oh, and ambidexterous hedgehogs. Too bad it doesn't count because I misspelled "ambidextrous-" it shouldn't have the second E.
