Who knew this?

I didn't, for one. Saw this sign in the AP newsfeed and noticed the word Juliet was spelled with two t's. As in, well, Juliett. How can that be right?

I checked with Romeo. Yup, only one t. Juliet.

But it turns out that in the official NATO phonetic alphabet the word Juliett, which stands for the letter J, is spelled with two t's. Juliett. You can see for yourself: http://bit.ly/2uCZfAF

So now I know. Wherefore art thou?
