When I take the digits on a keyboard to resemble letters, I see (which may not be what the kid's l33t speak translates):

1 = I
2 = Z
3 = E
4 = A
5 = S
6,9 = G,g
7 = T
8 = B
0 = O

Or to sum up, nine different letters:
I, Z, E, A, S, G, T, B, O

How many six letter English words can you make with them (no plurals, no repeating a letter)?

[Edit: I've found four so far.]
[m03m found a fifth.]
[n8an found a sixth.]
Must be something to having a number in your LJ name.

Yep. That was my first one as well.

It reminds me of a Knights of the Dinner Table comic strip where the gang was playing a role-playing tabletop game. The gamemaster described the countryside where there was a house with a gazebo standing next to it. The players immediately and stubbornly determined to attack the gazebo after it refused to speak to them. The gamemaster tried to get the game back on track but it only worked once he let the players hack and burn the gazebo to the ground.
