My diary would fill hundreds of pages if I ever bothered to print it out, but if I compress it with gzip it still fits easily on a single floppy disk.
These numbers clearly indicate that the average word in my diary is 5 letters long, the average sentence has about 10 words in it and the average entry contains about 20 sentences.
Isn't that just fascinating?
