OT: Did You Know?


Letters 'a', 'b', 'c' and 'd' do not appear if you spell any of the numbers between 1 and 99 [Funnily enough, letter 'd' comes for the first time in Hundred]
In addition, letters 'a', 'b' and 'c' do not appear anywhere in the spellings of 1 to 999 [Strange, but true, letter 'a' comes for the first time in Thousand]
Neither letter 'b' nor 'c' appear anywhere in the spellings of 1 to 999,999,999 [Letter 'b' comes for the first time in Billion]
Letter 'c' does not appear anywhere in the spellings of entire English counting.

Interesting. I'm looking for letter "Q" now. Up to 3,367,992. Still haven't seen it, but I'll find it. Got any tips? Do I really have to go to a quintillion?

There is a lot of repetition in numeral names. No need to check them all

still no J, K, or Z

"one octillion" isn't there :)
BTW, these things (like one,two, three) are NUMERALS. I learned that in 4th grade.

I bet they taught you silly things like "gender" is a property of nouns not of people, too.

I didn't know that and to think I got a college degree from an accredited college. Shameful isn't it :(
