In my head today

Vacuum, one of those strange words in English that has a double ‘u’.

What are the others, how many are there?

anuum, continuum, duumvir, menstruum, muumuu, residuum, triduum, intermenstruum, semicontinuum, smectymnuus, perpetuum, praecipuum, individuum, duumvirate, zuurveldt, sadalsuud, duumviral, lituus, obliquus, equuleus, squush(y), carduus, mutuum, weltanschauung.

Weird, huh?

Even worse, is that some of them have third person forms, plurals, etc.

See that’s the hard part about being an English teacher and language consultant, your head gets full of useless crap. Sometimes it’s useful, sometimes not.
