Cause one leg is called a pant. So two legs or two pants make up a pair of pants
@waffen ss, *trousers. UK!UK!UK! (Doesn't quite have the same ring...)
I think it's double-u because when they first started writing it it looked more like Us, but we began to make it sharper over time
@gaming is my life, it's because in old school printing, curves were impossible so U's and V's looked the same. So a double U looked like a double V.
@gaming is my life, in other languages they say pronounce it "double V"
@Fern7769, doble ve
@gaming is my life, in Latin, "v" and "u" are interchangeable, and make a u-esque sound. I always assumed it had something to do with that
@the crickets, it does! V would be pronounced somewhere between a u and a w sound. I'm taking Latin in university right now :)
@gaming is my life, in French it's called a double v.
@the crickets, yeah, that's the class that I got that from. :)
It's fun getting less candy because being healthy is fun... Racist.
@yourmominator, it might be fun if i got the whole box of those. I can assure you the only fun I'll have with this is when i smear them all over the front door when i leave
Parents kept confusing the "E" for excellent when public education started in America so teachers decided to use "F" instead to signal "failure"
@BRB, or fvck maybe
@BRB, at my high school we get E's. They've constantly told us that there's no such thing as an F. Lies
@BRB, in Croatia, we get grades from 1 to 5. 1 is the worst and 5 is the best.
Chicken fingers are named because it's chicken you eat with your fingers. You moan while stretching because when you let out air you can get a deeper stretch. A W in translated in many languages and back becomes double v
@sniperlif3, so you eat regular fried chicken with your feet?
@sniperlif3, to clarify, stretching is not the only time I moan
We have E, G, and U in the UK grading system.
@SITAWAS, I have learned something of value today.
@Saphire, Every day is a school day as they say.
Why do people take their clothes off during an intense poop?
Lolz at the "poke" one
I shoved the E up my ass, sorry guys
@Eiszeit, E for effort?
@D0N RAM0N, effort and a good amount of lubrication
@Eiszeit, ice cream time, ice cream time, time for some ice cream
@Eiszeit, Spanish as well
1) because they are finger sized
2) because of the way membrane buttons work, you are never sure exactly how hard you need to press, and so you press harder if it didn't work
3) you feel good when you stretch, and you need to stretch your diaphragm as well
4) it does if you use your thumbnail, sometimes...
5) it has to do with the way they are made, and how there are 2 legs
6) there's no space for E, the grade F is a vestige of the name grading system, for fail
7) they like talking, I guess
8) in Latin, there is no distinction between V and U
9) the whole site is useless
10) it's euphematic, because no one would buy them otherwise.
People press harder on the buttons when the remote is dead because sometimes the sensor plate is defective or shifted, and the remote isn't actually dead.
1) Chicken eaten with our fingers
2) Expel rage since you now need to get up to get new batteries
3) Relaxing, more of a yawn, also not always
4) Try not raping the box first
5) 2 legs in pants, 2=pair
6) There is an E in certain grades. Also better to skip one letter for a more meaningful impact.
7) To calm the patient. Wait until break in work then respond if needed
8) w used to be uu shaped, but became pointer over time
9) Entertainment when bored
10) Fun price-wise and makes parents happy.
I think that sums it up.
I have answers to many of these but I won't bore you with them
Finger sized, magic, they like the feeling, they hate us, a pant covers one leg, E is in prison for attempted murder, to keep you detracted from what they are doing, drunk people, good idea at time, marketing tactic to sell you less.
Who stretched just to see?
The small bags of candy are "Fun Size" so that I can toss them up into the air like wads of cash and bask in my wealth. Now that's fun.
1st one: because chicken feathers does not sound appetizing and chicken wi gs were taken
2nd: in hope that maybe the button isn't working, thats just stupid
5th: a pant is one leg
6th: most countries, like England, include E
7th: you can respond, they understand you
8th: because in scripture it's written as 2 u's
Im done with my rant
So it's called "stretching" nowadays eyy?
Half of these images in the pic make perfect sense. Like "W" in other fonts is two "U"s, the fact that my county (Baltimore County) grades A, B, C, D, and E, that the woman in the picture is moaning from an orgasm and not stretching, that we push buttons harder out of frustration, that chicken fingers are called fingers b/c theyre oriented towards kids and are also called chicken tenders, and that we say a pair of pants in reference to the two pant legs.
E is because nobody wanted it to be confused with excellent.
Because v used to make the u sound.
Because stretching is orgasmix
An E used to be the lowest mark for a grade but people were thinking it meant Excellent so they changed to F
You yawn when stretching.
Have you tried setting it to Wumbo?
In Australia our grades go A, B, C, D, E.. There is no F
As a dental student, it's because you don't realize how awkward it is to have you're hands in someones mouth for an hour and have awkward silence.
In France a W is called double-vay which means double V so there you go
Spanish makes more sense. Ve is V. Doble ve is a W but is literally translated as double V
W is pronounced "doble ve" in spanish, I don't know if that's the correct spelling, it's been a while since I took a spanish class
I moan when stretching, if you know what I mean...
In Australia we have an E
You think A B C D F is weird? My school got rid of D's so our grades just go A B C F
They look similar to fingers; same reason we repeteadly click the A button to speed up something in a game; it's a sign of relief; poor Kraftsmanship; IDK; Because B is similar looking to E, and lower case E could be mistaken for C, even though other grade letters look like other ones; to keep you calm; medieval styled U looked like V; IDK; it's a play on words of thumb-sized. If I got those wrong sorry!
Someone once called me fun sized because I'm 5'3". Does that mean I will be less fun because I'm less person?
I use to think that buffalo wings are really buffalos. Then i realise that buffalos doesnt have wings...
In the grading system F stands of fail of course. The other 4 letters A-D denote passing with varying degrees. It just so happens that F falls slightly out of line than the rest of the letters. If linguistics were remade and the word fail never existed I'm sure there would be big fat Es or Qs on papers that were less than adequate.
They're called chicken fingers because you guild them in your fingers while eating them.
Well i know M stands for mentally retarded or something so if you get an M youre basically being called a retard
It's called double-u because hundreds of years ago a "u" was a "v" but it was also a "v" as well. If you go the National Archives the words on the ceilings are written with "v"'s instead of "u's". It actually stems from Latin usage I do believe
The "pair" in pair of pants is reffering to the pant legs. There is a pair of pant legs.
in some Spanish speaking countries they say doble-V, so, uhh, yes?
The ancient 'U' was transcribed as 'V', such as in Latin.
In many languages it translates directly into double v
That last one's actually got a really good point...
