Random – 1

The timestamp will tell its tale. There was a HUGE power cut, and I was out of the house the rest of the day. So here’s a random funda.

The longest word I know is PNEUMONOULTRAMICROSCOPICSILICOVOLCANOCONIOSIS.If you know anything better, please respond.

Happy trivia hunting, and have a nice life, folks!


    these are the ones i can remember..urs is better though.

  2. I can tell the Largest Name.. its

  3. While browsing some medical pages, I came across chemical names of Enaptin / Titin (189,819 words)

    .... I wikied them today and here is an interesting page:

    The longest place-name found in any English-speaking country is:

    Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu - Māori name for a hill in New Zealand. (85 letters)

    Translates roughly as "The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who travelled about, played his nose flute to his loved one."

    (Both are good words to make visual by placing pics of Lungs-ultramicroscope-silicon-volcano) and the Taumata hill.


  4. What does PNEUMONOULTRAMICROSCOPICSILICOVOLCANOCONIOSIS mean? As far as I can decipher it should mean a condition affecting the lungs which result from inhalation of ultramicroscopic silicon dusts arising in the volcanic dusts. Reminds me of Eyjafjallajokull.
    The largest name of any human structure is "Arteia Commitans Nervi Ischia Disci". It is a small artery which runs in the upper thigh but has the largest name.
