I reckon abbreviations aren’t allowed in Scrabble.
Nor chemical formulas.
I’d take it with a grain of NaCl
Isn’t that H2O?
I’m disappointed in him. Is that really the best he could use two H’s for?
He either did not have an ‘e’ or he needed the extra letter for an extra point square.
I was the only kid in my family who dared to play Scrabble against my mother. I’m actually thankful, because it’s made me a crackerjack speller. I’m now always the one who people ask how to spell words, even if there’s a dictionary in the room.
@ShadowBeast, It is spelled out in the molecular form H-O-H. Jason probably nabbed some outrageous number point in the process.
I recently learned this is the Canadian postal code for mail to Santa Claus, no joke:
In other words, ho, ho, ho.
Actually, although we see H2O, it is actually an H attached to an OH .. so .. H-OH is appropriate … that is, if my deteriorating memory hasn’t forgotten my HS chemistry from (almost) a half century ago.
I’ve heard that chemists might write HOH instead of H20 when working with acids and bases.
Of course it’s very difficult to spell H2O in Scrabble — no numbers!
