Imagine if they put this on the spelling be...

Can anyone even pronounce this word? I mean really it would be pretty cool to memorize but it would take a while to do so. Its kind of like memorizing pi cool but ultimately useless.

Challenge: Use this word in a daily conversation!!!

Supposedly the chemical name for a strand of DNA (every single chromosome and so on) is over a trillion letters.

Stop being such a gullible ponce.

That so-called "word" is just a bunch of butchered Anglo-Latin and Anglo-Greek transitionals that are bolted together in a way that makes no sense.

A cursory glance reveals the following:

ORNI - pertaining to winged flight

BIBLIO - pertaining to books

PSYCHO - of the mind

METERO - of or pertaining to the atmosphere

AUSTRO - Austro-Asiatic, from the Latin auster (south)

HIERO - sacred or holy, pertaining to hierology, from the Greek hieros (holy)

ANTHROPO - pertaining to anthropometry, humanity

ICHTHYO - of fish, from the Greek ikhthuo (fish)

PYRO - pertaining to fire

...and so on.

Also I note a couple of duplications in there.

One of my favorite "longest words" that I actually use: "Antidisestablishmentarianism".

(A philosophy that has received new life in the present American political climate, I might add.)

"Infinate"s a pretty big word too

Closely followed by: "I wanna have a WORD with you!" after youve just melted the wifes brand new kitchen counter top... that "Word" can go on for ages too, if not Years!
