Anagram-Agar Man

One of the young adult novels I read this summer, An Abundance of Katherines, is a story about a prodigy named Colin with a penchant for dating and being dumped by girls named Katherine: nineteen Katherines, nineteen times exactly. After Katherine XIX breaks his heart, his devastation inspires him to prove his Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, a "mathematical formula that predicts which of two people will end a romantic relationship and when..." etc.

Anyway, Colin possesses a prodigious talent for anagramming, and reading the novel led to the discovery of an amusing website (if you don't think it's cool, remember that I am easily amused): Internet Anagram Server, which incidentally can be anagrammed, "I, Rearrangement Servant." Type in your letters and in three seconds, behold the first 1000 anagrams.

So, if you ever get bored, or have too much time on your hands, check it out.
