And has a rule that you can't writing them all in same words and same words can't repeat in a short time.

Physically impossible. There's only 31,536,000 seconds in a year. You'd have to write almost 32 words per second, non-stop, every second for an entire year. No stopping to eat, sleep, use the bathroom or do anything else.

@bbironman: It's still 3 words per second for an entire year. Doesn't seem possible.

I would just draw a straight vertical line imply that they are I's that are connected at ends.

It could be billions to infinite depending on how much you want to dissect it.

No. As proven above, it's impossible.

Unless you take 31.5 breaths a second every second of the day (going by the math above), probably not.

Of course I can. I can write a script that will randomize words from the dictionary and print them and then run that script on multiple computers simultaneously. So I write code to do it for me.

Yes. It’s really easy to write a program that copy pastes as many times as you want. So if you wrote a sentence 10 words long and set the program to repeat that 100 million times it would get to a billion words eventually. Assuming your CPU can handle that, it would still take a long time.

Edit: Just saw someone else answer with a computer based solution, now I feel like the opposite of clever.

Don't be so complicated. While your answers are pretty good, there's an even easier solution that I'm surprised no one has brought up...

Copy and paste.
