A Piece of Text - a random snippet from our own Amazing Text

NOTE: currently offline - Russian db of advertising slogans. surprisingly boring. - Word Lists in general - the largest(?) word list, in specific


BB post on textbook prices has some good sources on free online textbook resources. - used by Darius Kazemi (locally scraped) in dialogue (as noted in a comment). - Internet Sacred Text Archive (link to Nostradamus section)


API documentation for the National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference (NDB). - with images (after processing multiple pages)


USDA Complete PLANTS checklist - The Complete PLANTS Checklist is nearly 7 MB and includes Symbol, Synonym Symbol, Scientific Name with Authors, National Common Name, and Family. Fields in this text file are delimited by commas and enclosed in double quotes. You can import this file into many databases or spreadsheets. For example, first save the .txt file, then open in Microsoft Excel by specifying “Text Files” in the file type scroll box, and import by specifying “Comma” as the delimiter. Or use the file directly in Excel: copy it from the screen, paste it into a new worksheet, and select “Text to Columns...” from the Data menu. The complete PLANTS checklist may have more records than Excel allows, so you might need to split it into two worksheets. (direct link) (text + images after search)
