The word "committee"...
« on: August 06, 2004, 06:28:47 PM »
OK, so how many other people love typing the word 'committee'.  3 pairs of double letters!  YIKES!  My fingers hurt.  I can't tell you the number of times that I've had to type it over and over for this File Control Log.  Hang on, let me count:

15 times!

And, no I didn't use "Copy" or "Paste".  I am old-fashioned.

But, I do have a question:  Are there any other words in the English language that have more than 3 pairs of double letters in them?

Just curious ...  ???

You know, sometimes I really start believing it when artsy types tell us science geeks how boring we are.  Then I read discussions like this one.  I'll take quantum physics any day, thanks  ;D
