Words, Words, Words

Why doesn't "four" rhyme with "our" or "hour"?

Why don't we spell "seven" "s-e-a-v-e-n" so that it looks like "heaven"?

And, who the heck came up with the spelling for "eight"?

  1. Who came up with the spelling of "eight?"
    One and Two. I'd put money on it. They're in it together. If you check out the spellings, One has an "o" that belongs to two, and two has a "w" that belongs to one. Conspiracy? I think so.
