    From: http://www.patents.com/us-5051919.html

    Testing of poles

    Abstract
    The residual strength of electricity poles is determined by the deflection of the poles under a pre-determined applied load. The load is applied by an extensible ram which has a foot secured to the base of the pole by a chain and a head plate with teeth which engages the sides of the poles. A preset hydraulic pressure is applied to the ram by a manual pump and the deflection if measured by strain gauges mounted on a support frame. The load deflection data are fed to a programmed computer which calculates the residual strength.

    When this particular athlete feels the pressure of competition, she's a testy Pole using a pole to get over a pole.

    By changing one letter at a time in each word without permuting letters, leaving two other common English words, how many changes are required to get from
    TEST POLL
    to

    MATT MATT

    I got it in five substitutions for each word. Can anyone do it in fewer? Three is the theoretical minimum for TEST->MATT; four for POLL->MATT. All words have to be in The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (Fourth Edition).

    PhiPi wins for the most complicated perturbation yet.

    Can I say "perturbation" on TV?



    Fibonacci sequence, anyone?
