killing on flight

A few word puzzles that helped kill time on the plane:

1) Think of a word that starts and ends with the letters “he” (no, it’s not “he” or “hehe”)

2) Think of a 5-letter word whose letters can be rearranged to form 4 other words (making a total of 5 words), with each of the 5 letters being a first letter of one of the 5 words

3) Think of a word that contains the string “adac”

4) Form as many words as you can with the letters: E,O,C,E,K,R,E,R,T

1) and 3) are from Douglas Hofstadter’s “Godel, Escher, Bach”, and are related.

2) was passed down by word of mouth

4) is from the newspaper on the plane
