Words that have double-Us.

Okay, for the longest time (as a child) I was told that the only word in the English language that had "uu" in it was "vacuum". This is a lie. There are more!! The goal is to find them all. Here's what I've come up with so far. Please add to the list!

Vacuum - it sucks
Continuum - succession, or whole, no part of which can be distinguished from neighboring parts except by arbitrary division
Triduum - the scared 72 hour period between sunset on Holy Thursday to sunset on Easter Sunday
