A word game with a logical aspect: each line represents a different word and each word has exactly N letters different than the word above and below it.

For this first installment, N=1 for the first group and N=2 for the second group. The first word of the second group has exactly 2 letters different than the last word of the first group.

Adding/subtracting a letter counts as 1 letter different, and there is no anagramming (yes, I like verbizing words ;P), although there may be in future editions.



Group 1:

Digital measure,
< bark,
Full of it when he's bitter,
Unit of distance,
Craft or sweep?
> matter,
Keep the pages together,
007,
Homeward _____,
= a pint.


Group 2:

diddiddiddiddid(___)diddiddiddiddid
No current when the circuit is this,
Cannot occupy the same orbital if the same,
Cowboy foot accessory,
Almost perfect bowl,
To such sweet sorrow,
Less than three,
Only do it to itself,
Middle (if you care about values),
Middle (if you care about number).

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P

My love isn't of mathematical accuracy in silly applied things such as the random ways countries decide to define units, it's of the elegance of theory and form. Math is the language of science, and the truly universal language ;P.

Yep, good job everyone. :thumbsup: Dessert will be served later this evening. Meanwhile, if you're still hungry, you could go wet your appetite on one of the unsolved riddles in my sig ;).
