Stretching: feels awesome.
Pants: Each "leg-sleeve" is called a pant.
Grades: E was skipped in favor of F for "Failure".
Dentists: They have an uncanny ability to understand open-mouthed, tongueless speech from years of listening to patients.
W: It only looks like two Vs in that font. Traditionally, a lowercase w has curved bases.
Facebook poking: It's for people who are too timid to say 'hello', have nothing to really talk about, or are just wanting to be playful, but want people to know they're thinking of them. It's a silent form of contact, like waving at someone.
Fun size: That has always bothered the **** out of me.

My guess about fun size is that they were planned as being used to hand out at parties or some **** .

Chicken fingers are called that because it is a finger food, we use our fingers to eat the chicken strips.

Oh and "pants" is because it is two "pant legs" so take of the "legs" and you get pants.
And the ABCDF is because E is often interpreted as "excellent".

1) cus they're long and thin like fingers (inb4 penis)
2) because we think it helps, the same reason you press the buttons harder in video games.
3)because stretching brings pleasure (doesn't it release endorphins?)
4)sometimes it does
5)We don't say pants, the correct term is trousers
6)In a level in England you can get an E
7)Because it creates a friendly atmosphere, as apposed to if he was ******* silent the whole time
8) because when you write out a lower case w it is curly like two "u"s
9) so is this website
10)you don't get diabetes

In German, a "V" is called a "wiss", while a "W" is called a "duple-wiss". Yay, other cultures!
#11 to #7 - lolibear (04/21/2013) [-]
Same thing applies for the french. They say "double ve"
User avatar #12 to #7 - thepastryistrue (04/21/2013) [-]
I can't confirm that.
"V" is called or pronounced as [fow], while "W" is pronounced [ve], a voiced F-sound with a stretched E.

The reason for calling the W "double U" is, that it's basically just that: A doubled U-sound. In the middle ages there wasn't a letter for the W-sound, so they used the U instead (or the V, since it was the very same letter). To differentiate between the usual U-sound and the W-sound, they put two Us together.

I assumed since we're using the Roman alphabet and that there's the fact that Romans used v's for u's that it looks like to v's and is called a double u.
User avatar #37 to #10 - iLiekToFap (04/21/2013) [-]
Could be that at well.

1) It's the shape.
2) The reason it works sometimes is because it pushes closer to the contact.
3) It compresses your organs, letting air out quickly.
4) Even if it did, you need to open the box normally to get the cheese packet out.
5) Pair of pant legs.
6) Two reasons: F stands for failure and if both F and E were instituted, it would be easy to confuse the two.
7) It calms many people down and allows them to focus on something other than what is going on in their mouth.
8) The letter U used to be written as a V.
9) No. People are alerted when you poke them. It's used to get somebody's attention.
10) Adveritising.

I'm not positive about this, but I'm pretty sure "pair of pants" is an abbreviation of "a pair of pants legs," and is a holdover from when everybody wore hoses on their legs. So you would have needed a pair of pants legs, once upon a time, because they were basically giant socks.

But then we sensibly fused the pants legs together into a single pair of pants, but we still call it a pair, because tradition.

I could also be completely wrong.

U's used to be written as V's in latin
Boom.

-In spanish, the pronunciation of W translates to "double V"
- in some schools, such as mine, E is used instead of F, however, one reason for F might be that kids would say that it stood for "excellent"
-poking people does get their attention
#30 - anon (04/21/2013) [-]
Why is W a letter when the word "double" is in it?
User avatar #27 - ritzrules ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
The Spanish letter for v is pronounced "ve."
W is pronounced "doble ve."

They know what it be.
User avatar #32 to #27 - Zeigh (04/21/2013) [-]
Same thing in Italian except V is pronounced voo. So it's doppio vu.
User avatar #26 - tipjar (04/21/2013) [-]
In England, we have E but don't go down to F, we then go to U which is ungraded.

Stretching one: Diaphragm is a muscle that needs stretchin too

Pokes: No ****

Dentists: Theyve been doing it for a while.

W: Either that the lowercase w is traditionally 2 u's, or that in Latin, U was written as V

Fun Size: In my experience, theres about the same amount of stuff, but its littler. Still dont know how that makes it fun.

I'm a learning German at the moment and the pronounce "W" dowble-vay. makes sense i suppose.
User avatar #21 to #20 - karvarausku ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
You say the W "Tupla vee" in Finnish
User avatar #22 to #21 - itjusthappened (04/21/2013) [-]
In Spanish it's "ve doble"
User avatar #24 to #20 - contacta (04/21/2013) [-]
"W" in german sounds like "weh" and "V" is pronounced "vau"
#16 - nsfwanon (04/21/2013) [-]
It's called a pair of jeans/pants/whatever because there's two leg sections. Hence why a pair of socks is called so; because there's two of them. Jeans just happen to be joined at one end.

I have no clue why someone would use letters for grades. Numbers would do the same with more ease. 0 = fail through 4 or 5 = top grade.
#14 - anon (04/21/2013) [-]
In england, we get E's.
