TIL that apparently snow on the roof and trunk won't help you to not get stuck in the snow. I also learned that if you have any seemingly logical thoughts about RWD in the snow, you'll be swiftly corrected and called lazy on the forums.

V is the only letter in scrabble that cannot be used to form a 2 letter word.

TV hasn't been an acronym since the 60's
Edit: Sorry I was thinking of drunk scrabble.

Dam scrabble dictionary I use on my phone and the computer I play against online. Can't swap my playing partner easily, lol, just have to be tactful when I occassionally win not to point out the subject of her masters degree. American Standard English I assume but the computer has been known to use Scottish words.

I used Hasbro's official Scrabble dictionary online and from what I can tell you are correct. It definitely rejects any combination of V and a vowel, and TV.

There also isn't anything on their official Scrabble Words List sheet that lists among other things all valid two letter words.

I guess The "VU" in VU meter is still considered to be an initialism.

TIL: The best way to keep my cat from sitting directly in front of my laptop all day is to place a heating pad next to my laptop. Honestly kind of embarrassed it took me this long to figure out.
