I was under the impression most of us knew what a fortnight was and we just didn't use it.

People still use that? I thought it was a middle ages thing...

In England, nothing is just from the middle-ages.

We still use furlong for ***** sake.

England man here, I have come to say that nobody here commonly uses fortnight but we do all know what it means. Have a good day rest of the world. England man out.

You know why it's called a fortnight?

Because it's fourteen nights
User avatar #19 - monkeysniper (12/14/2013) [+] (2 replies)
America did use fortnight, it's just an older word that has fallen out of common use, like saying something is gay (as in happy)

just because some stupid 13 year old on tumblr doesn't know what a fortnight is doesn't mean that all Americans don't understand it. It's just an old fashioned word that barely anybody uses anymore, like doth, thou, nay, or score for 20.
