I was copy pasting the sentence:
Quote:
A puzzle is _____ turning if the puzzle can turn on the _____ of the polyhedra it is designed upon.

While highlighting the word with the mouse and typing in the blank space, I realized that "face" "vertex" and "edge" are all left handed words. i.e. when typing on a keyboard, you can type all three of those words with only your left hand (using the traditional "left index on F, right index on J"). :mrgreen:
Figured somebody might get a kick out of this,

On the topic of words typeable with only one section of the keyboard,
"TYPEWRITER" is possible using only the first row of letters on the keyboard.
