i just realised

the word mitsubishi, a respected electronics company worldwide, dont use the letter A in their company name? i mean wtf?

Im with you though, the letter A does deserve a touch more respect when writing numbers in letter form. Maybe the other letters got jealous of it being first in the alphabet and stuff.

Z is one of the most infrequently used letters in the alphabet, whereas A is one of the most frequent (being a vowel). I didn't just mean the letter itself but the sound that accompanies it. There isn't a single number that when pronounced has an "ah" or "ay" sound? And yet the other vowels are all used often.

Also, comparing the name of an electronics company to the full array of integers pronounced in the English language isn't exactly appropriate.

Every possible number is actually a combination of the numbers I listed there. I forgot zero though.
