Got an email today telling me about a TTC puzzle to try and find ~70 English words (no-abbreviations, proper names, contractions, etceteras) formed from just the letters in "TRANSIT". I've got 54 so far (stop reading if you want to try the puzzle yourself):
an, it, is, at, in, as, nit,
tan, sit, tin, rat, sin, ran, sir, tit, tar, sat, ant, art, (its?), nits,
rant, tart, tans, tits, tins, rats, tars, rain, star, ants, arts, tint, tsar, tarn, snit,
tarts, rants, train, trait, rains, satin, start, sitar, tints, tarns,
trains, traits, stint,
And that will teach you peddlers of such puzzles to send them to poor Mikeys who are trying to get work done. Oh, and before anyone tells me, yes, it's a trivial task to automate finding the answers to such problems, the fun is in the doing, not the answer.
