Try Top Typing! (Posted on 2005-09-15) Difficulty: 2 of 5
What ten-letter (or longer) words in the English language can be typed using only the top row of keys on a keyboard?

Hint: the letters can be used more than once.

How about using only the middle row keys? Keys on left side (the left of T, G, and B)? On the right side (the right of Y, H, and N)?
