Ooops.  I meant 11,115,832 -- I counted the column headings
as methods.

Even including treble bob and delight methods, these are
still the four "most false" methods.

By constrast, the most false rung Delight method is
Freezywater with ABDEKTc with 15 FCHs.  The most false
Treble Bob methods are Noxious (ABDKPa -- 9 FCHs) and
Jupiter (ABFKNad -- also 9 FCHs).
