there isnt any e's, which is pretty strange since, just in this sentence here, there are exactly 14 e's

Actually think about what you just said. If you don't count the "e's" part and you only take out 1 e, therefore making it 15 e's...

But there are two "e's". If they are omitted, then "e" appears 14 times.

The only oddity that I spotted is that the most common letter used in English the letter E was not in the paragraph at all

now a quick edit later i see i that this was solved quite a few posts ago

Ahh...Good point...I missed the fact that he had "e's" in there twice. I was still counting the e in the first "e's" since I'd have figured he'd not think about the last e since it's after he stated the number of e's in his sentence.
