Twelve across in this morning's crossword, was a seven letter word with three u's in it.
I thought, "That's unusual."

On the other hand, there was the guy who had something wrong with him and went to see a doctor. The doctor gave him a thorough examination, and gave him a battery of tests. Finally he told the guy what his diagnosis was: "You have Tom Jones Syndrome." "Hmmm, Tom Jones Syndrome? I've never heard of a disease like that ... is it rare?" "Well," came the answer, "it's not unusual."

Speaking of rarities - we know lots of verbs that end in "ify" (diversify, nullify, satisfy, etc.) What two common verbs end in "efy"?

Liquefy and stupefy come to mind. There may be others.

Why did they make it so hard to spell?
I would've called it "eeeee".

rarefy


It's "rarify" as far as I know -- as in rarified gases, etc.

Half right... another case where English makes SO much sense.

The active verb is "rarefy". The passive verb is "rarify".

In other words, you rarefy the gas to produce a rarified gas.
