Lol.. never heard of any but continuum, and never would've though of it.

What I did think of, were those six elements on the Periodic Table which have Uu as their first two letters :-)

I'm guessing you're only after root words, because you could have vacuums, vacuuming and vacuumed.

I still maintain that it would have been nice to have the definitions of the words in the answer. Apart from Vacuum I haven't a clue as to the others. Always ready to be educated though, i'll go and look them up

"Call me muumuuistical if you like, but I think it's muumuuriffic that they've begun installing muumuumatics in many malls and airports. Looks like we won't be seeing the demuumuuification of Muumuumerica anytime soon!"

cool, you put a lot of thought into it. Words with a double u (no pun intended for the "w"hats of the "w"orld), it never dawned on me to ponder the thought. That's the whole point of this site.
