Just to add: Michael's definitely compared different texts to what he's listed. We'll just have to wait for an answer and see. If you look at the values of certain words present in one sample text but not the other, for example "which" and "yet", since in your distance metric it'll be <somenumber>-0 squared, and then rooted, you should arrive back at the same <somenumber> again. Michael's does not. I'm not willing to share actual values due to rules against collusion, but since the mathematical formula is shared, I think I'm allowed to make that point. tldr: we'll wait for an update, but I'm sure the current numbers are incorrect :)
