JAVA – Finding the shortest three-letter-word sequence between these two words…?

A three-letter-word sequence is a sequence (any sequence) of three-letter words so that any two adjacent words differ by exactly one letter. For example, BED, TED, TEN, MEN, HEN, HUN. Before you ask, here is a list I am given of allowable three-letter-words titled A3word.input:

We need to find the shortest three-letter-word sequence (example, in the example above it took 5 moves to get from BED to HUN). Find the shortest three-letter-word sequnece that connects the words (if they exist):
1. IVY to LAB
2. OAK to ICE
3. ICY to LIE
(backwards order is okay).
We need to do this with JAVA. If anyone could help it would be appreciated. Thank you! :)

admin answers:

I would create a graph with each word a node and the edges connecting the nodes that are only one letter apart. Then, use Djikstra’s shortest-path algorithm to find your sequence

Laura asks…

Ive always wondered?? is this blasphemy?

im christian and ive always wondered this: you know that some shows like Family Guy, South Park etc sometimes have Jesus in them, sometimes as a joke, an example is when in S. Park he swtchs a jog of water with a jug of wine and tells the children he made wine, if u laugh at that as a Christian, is that considered blasphemy or does Jesus also laugh it off and take it as a joke (as it is), considering i hav my beliefs no matter how much of a joke it is, i still believe in Jesus…

so my question is: if u laugh at those jokes is that blasphemy?
or Jesus and God laugh it off
i get how its a bit offensive but i would think that God has a sense of humor too and it doesnt change my faith in any way whatsoever…

admin answers:

Some would argue that god is so holy, divine, powerful, wonderful, etc, that to consider him in any other context (humor) would be blasphemous

others would argue that BECAUSE god is so holy, powerful, wonderful, that he loves to see humans laughing as long as it’s not at the detriment of someone.

He’d probably rather you laugh at him (he can take it) than someone with self esteem issues.

Mary asks…

Will jugging rise my metabolism?

I’ve been going to the gym for 2 years now. In the summer I’ve always toke a break. Now I’m starting the summer break again and I want to know if jogging will ‘keep my motor’ running for the summer. Me and my classmates like to go jogging and I was thinking if running with them plus some home workout could mentain my muscles and make me stay thin.

admin answers:

Eating breakfast will do a lot for metabolism. Your body is on slow mo till you eat your first meal. So breakfast will pop it up early in the am. Jogging will help if you gain muscle mass in the legs. Muscle burns calories.

I find that it can be counter productive. Setting aside one action to keep your body fit is too easy to neglect. I prefer to do different exercises through out the day that keep my heart rate up and work all different parts of the body. Yoga and Palites have really amazed me. Not only do I gain strong enduring muscles I also gain coordination, flexibility, balance… List goes one. I can do it any time almost any where. Weather does not interfere. Thats just my 2cent.

Ps. Because a lot of women also like these regimes it is an excellent way to meet some healthy ladies.

Paul asks…

Would this be a good workout?

If I were to carry one 1 gallon jug with water in each hand (two total) and jog around a 10 mile lake?

A gallon of water weighs about 8.34 LBS.
the point of the gallons are to build up arm muscle.

Ya i say it would be, but ppl might think ur CRAZY!!!!

Helen asks…

Were they witches? Or doing witchcraft? Pigs blood?

I went jogging through a forest-path that is usually pretty busy with people walking their dogs and stuff. It was sort of getting dark, and there were two girls… one older woman, and a young girl sitting on the side of the path in the middle of the woods.

They had like bags, and blankets and weird stuff, and two HUGE glass jug container things full of blood. One blood was dark and the other was thinner. I got a weird feeling and couldn’t read the label but it did say blood. Do you think they were doing witchcraft? Thoughts?

admin answers:

The thin blood was most likely animal blood, and the thick could be human. Theyre probably not witches, they’re probably people, but they may be trying to perform a ritual to bring them closer to a spirit.
Many rituals involve concoctions of human and other blood types, so it may very well be a ritual of sorts
