So, bonanova, isn't this thing solved yet?

You have got

1) senescence
2) strengths OR Stretched

3) queueing
4) angsts OR Witchcraft

5) Latchstring
6) facetiously

7) Indivisibility
8) bookkeeper

Well, but senescence is wrong answer, i can't find angsts in dictionary(there's only angst),and latchstring is actually latch-string

hmm.........

I think it's solved. Each of these were mentioned on one post or another:

  1. strengths
  2. strengths, stretched
  3. queueing
  4. [angsts] witchcraft lengths strengths
  5. latchstring [hyphen is optional]
  6. facetiously abstemiously
  7. indivisibility [indivisibilities if you want to show off - it has7 occurrences of i]
  8. bookkeeper
