Did you record the singing? Hey, that brutally mechanical song according to the comment above me all for nothing? Maybe you can get someone to listen to it, maybe also put it on Spotify?

My mind is like this:

What a 5 letter or 4 letter U.S state?

My brain:Oregon,Nevada,Kansas Private brain thoughts:we’re definitely talking about 6 letter state, definitely not about a different thing, I’m so smart, man, why do I even have to be this dumb person brain

*5 letters long or fewer

letters are quantifiable, it should be fewer.

I think it's correct as is, because it refers to "long" (as in length) not the letters ("5 letters or fewer" would be correct). And "length" is unquantifiable.

(Also, I've asked ChatGPT about something similar to this, but I think it confused both of us...)
