Dead Tree edition #1

I just finished the first draft of my sophomore English paper, nominally 5-7 pages.
Mine:
9 full pages in 12 font
15629 characters, 2924 words, 126 sentences, 19 paragraphs.
6.6 sentences per paragraph
23.2 words per sentence

My paper is about how the electoral college is truly, royally screwed up and how to fix it. There are serious problems with it, particularly that with the way it's set up mathematically, a candidate could win the election with 21.8% of the popular vote.
