I am the all-un-knowing-space-migit-who-is-funky-and-lives-in-a-bus. I think "w" is the most hilarious letter. any coments?

Hi! Welcome to H2G2! If you go to your space (click My Space in yellow in the left hand side of your window) and click edit Intro you can tell people about yourself and one of our ACEs will come along and introduce you to the world of H2G2.
I hope I see you around!
Researcher 207321 Posted Oct 25, 2002
thank you for the freindly welcome, but what relivence does all that have to the letter "w"?
Tango Posted Oct 25, 2002
Not a lot! It is a good idea to make an intro so an ACE (volunteer welcomer) can come alone and give you some tips, then you can start exploring!
About the letter "w", it is the only letter that is made up of 2 other letters "double 'u'" (both in name and in symbol), so it is very special. You have made a good choice in choosing it as your favorite letter!
PS Please do follow my previous intructions, it really is a good idea!

it all depends on your handwriting, i guess...

u and v were the same letter until recently
Shanana the cannibalistic banana Posted Apr 25, 2005
Like... 600 years, maybe?
But u was always separate in Greek. In fact, there is no v in greek. and w in greek is actually a long o. Hooray for omegas!
Empeda Posted Apr 25, 2005
And the german for 'w' translates as 'double-v' not 'double-u'. Does this mean that the Germans are straighter than us or just that we're a bit more wavey?

i like that u can say world wide web as quick as u can say www
Empeda Posted Apr 26, 2005
And also that people 'shorten' things like World War 2 to WW2!
Are there any words in English that have more than two Ws in them?

some people say "Dubs". That threw me the first time I heard it.
AlexoOo Posted May 4, 2005
I disagree, I think B is a funnier letter than W. And more useful.
Think-Am Posted Sep 26, 2005
I think that either X or W are the funniest letters.
AlexoOo Posted Sep 26, 2005
Nahhhhhh mate! B just looks like a bottom turned sideways. W is a pointier less funny sideways copy. X? About as funny as X-rays. About as funny as ex. About as funny as death. P is a funny letter. Especially a silent P.
