Words that can be written on a calculator. Need help!

OK, I'm making this list of words that can be written on a calculator when you turn it upside-down (0=o, 1=i, 2=z, 3=e, 4=h, 5=s, 7=l, 8=b, 9=g. 0 can also be used as d, but it looks more like an o.)

I have gotten up with quite a list. The most in norwegian (I am from Norway), but some english too.

So now I'll ask you: Will you help me with finding more ENGLISH words that can be written on a calculator. I don't have my list here (I'm on the library. OH, I have it with me I remembered!)

The english words I have (and some other funny words and names):
Google, hi, hello, boobies, sos, heel, eel, goose, gee, lol, hell, (a german word: heil), is, loose, hole, solo, loss, log, globe, do, ooze, loo, slide, (german: liebe), boose, boss, bee, bees, Bob, big, beige (is this in english?), del (ctrl+alt), Lee, bible, dig, egg, dog, Dill (The Osbournes guy, isn't it?), lego, diesel, oil, God, goo, goodie, boogie, hood, hose, shell, loss, lose, hog, eagle, (german: gelb), geese, doll, gold, ***sob***, old, bold, obo, so, dodge, Bill, iglo.

That was actually a lot. Some of the words are about the same in norwegian, or is the same, so there's a few words that I added to the list over that is not on my written list here.

OK, post more! I'm gonna make an encyclopedia or whatitsname.

Graphical calculators are the best. You can write boobies and then below it draw a picture of some boobies.

Hmm.... now that's an interesting idea. Maybe I'll make one on mine.

[elvisvoice]Thank you very much[\elvisvoice]

OK. Really good. Do anyone have more?

What is the fun in making words on a calculator that writes letters? We got only numeric calculators at school, so that's what I want words to. It's more fun to make words on a thing that cannot make words unless you turn it upside down.

fabadafeb. Or at least that's what I use to write on my calc, cause it wanst a graphing calc I can get only a,b,c,d,e and f by normal means. Dunno how to get the rest.

You could probably write "Tikitikitimbonosarimbocherryberryruchipipberrypim bo"



If you sat down and thought about it.

No, that's just a Scientific Calculator, a proper Graphical Calculator has all of the alphabet on it. Of course, with you's, you can write deadeadead for some stupid reason. The good thing about graphical calculators is that you can type somthing in, swith the calculator off, and then when you switch it back on, it'll still have wht you typed on it. Mine has Kill All Humans written o it so when someone turns it on, that comes up.

hehe you are talking about a calculator that can work with hexadecimal numbers (0-f) only and not has the complete alphabet on they keyboard..

the calculators with the whole alphabet on it are programable or have at least 26 memory places which are accessable through the letters a-z ..

IO thought this thread was about plain, 4 function calculators. The ones with 10 number buttons, using which you can make only the letters o, i, z, e, h,s,g,l,B, and thats it. No d. so some of my words are wrong. but I think those were the letters we were talking about, other wise this whole thread is rather pointless. I'm wondering why people even brought up graphing and scientific calculators.

@Neil - Yeah that's what I was gonna say, Graphing calc, not scientific. But mine lets me use letters when i press like 2nd and Hex... Hexadecimal i guess.

But y calc DOES have other letters on them, but i dun know how to get them.
Hereis a piccy:

you need to get it into alpha mode..It probably says how in the manual. I'm talking about little wussy calculators though. the ones with like 20 buttons and thats it. Ones with no 2nd or 3rd functions. ahhhh.

because some people only have scientific calculators..
i think it's ok to have a sientific calculator as long as you know what's behind all the functions

err and k-j .. you are not trying to type the letters from the "sin" or "XOR" keys?? i mean this calculator seems not to have the right display to display all the letters

It bothers me when people get really nice (for example, TI-89) calculators when they can't even do everything on a simpler version. And then when they say that it is "impossible to do calculus without one". Interesting. Until about 10 years ago, no one had a graphing calculator, much less one as advanced as the ones they have now. People are getting lazier.

I don't think so. I got a TI-83+ and we are allowed to use them in tests in school.The calculator is handy when checking results or messing around log or trig equations, but mostly math and physics calculations are still done by hand.

I love my TI-83+ exceedinly much. I think those, and TI-86's are fine. The ones that bother me are the TI-89s, used by people who know nothing about math.

These are the same people who, (on their brand new TI-89s that they only know a little bit about how to use) type in the equation 100=4x+4 or similar. That is laziness.

I think advanced calculators are great for people who know how to do everything they're doing on the calculator by hand and could if their calculator was taken away.

If you don't know how to do something lby hand first, you shouldn't be doing on a calculator. Thats when I think people are lazy and ought to be brained.
