Can u find the word?

Consider the set of vowels, V={a,e,i,o,u}. can u find a word that contains all of these vowels in the order they are listed? ( the vowels may be separated by other letters)

Is Administrator a Computer, or a person?

Re: Can u find the word?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That's really funny!

Well, austin81, I believe (since I used to have my own message board) that an administraitor is someone who is the top leader of the board: someone who holds the ability to change settings on the board that normal guests and members can't. A moderator can also do some of these actions, but not all of them, since they're lower down than the administraitor.
Hope you know what I'm rambling on about here.

That's good, cool_me ... I never knew that education so neatly included the vowels.

I will have to remember that!

Facetious is the correct word, not eductation.
