It’s crazy how many things in different languages we use, that have strange starts.

Btw what the hell is a tuple...

Double, triple, quadruple, quintuple, sextuple, septuple, and so on. It's the generalization of a grouping of things, an n-tuple is group of n things. Although, I always read tuple as too-pull, not tupp-ell as it's pronounced in quintuple.
