Why do we call "W"...double u? It's clearly a double v. Just look!!! It's a double v. Capitalized...VV =W, lower case vv=w. It's a double f@cking v, not a double f@cking u. It's not even next to the u in the alphabet. T, U, V, W...it's next to the V!!! It has to climb over the V to get to the single U. If it was actually a double U it would be T, U, W (double u), V...There's no reason to put the double u so far from the single u UNLESS it's not actually a double u but a double V!!! Look down at your keyboard...double V, we learned to write it with straight lines in pre-K...double v. So why the hell do we call it double U?!?!? We need to talk to somebody about this and rectify the situation. It might be too late for us but think of the children; learning the wrong damn letters. Putting them in the wrong order or calling them the wrong damn names. T, U, V, W (double v, not double u). They screw around with Math all the damn time (new math, old math, common core math...) but they can't fix the alphabet. We need to make this happen people...for the children.
