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 :-)

thats funny, being a chemistry nut myself, thats where the idea came from :D

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

Posted by AXTON11/17/04
yeah, root ords only

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

revacuum unvacuum devacuum exvacuum disvacuum muumuuistical muumuuriffic muumuumatic demuumuuification Muumuumerica "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. 8)
