    That is true, they used to be taught the alphabet with Fortran.

    Well of course, a line beginning with a "C" in Fortran is treated as a comment and would thus be ignored...

    Ouch! Actually, the C wouldn't be ignored, because otherwise the compiler wouldn't know it's a comment.

    well being an american citizen and English being my native tounge, and english being one of the least taught subject i ever learned in the many schools i was in(many). I was taught, the English vowels were; A,E,I,O,U, sometimes Y, and in rarer cases W, though i have never seen that.

    ... wtf did you just say?

    well technically 'Y' works out to a vowel since "every word must contain a vowel", words like

    by,
    why,
    cry,
    dry,
    ect...

    use 'Y' as their vowel.

    Please, please let this thread freaking die, guys. Debating about whether or not 'y' is a vowel is the most pathetic thing I've ever seen.
