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.

Ok. After checking my dictionary, I confirm BIOGAS, but have to rule out BITSEA for now. Maybe a more up-to-date version will settle it.

I'll be honest with you: I wasn't completely serious about that one. Hence the smiley.
Was BIOGAS among your original four?

No but if you check the complete comments, you'll see n8an got the other two and even added one.
