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.

I cheated (used anagram artist) to find all of 'em seeing the obvious one listed that I found. I figured that it was late enough now from you posting this that I could do that:

gazebo
baizes
zibets
biogas
bigots
gobies
tobies
egoist
stogie

So, it looks like there are nine six-letter words.
