To be fair, it's not really a word as such, more a verbal formula. The longest true word (as in defined in a reference dictionary) is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.


Which is a purposely long word for silicosis. So it's the longest word, but it's the longest word for something that already had a shorter word for it.

The longest English word that is neither a technical term nor purposely long for the sake of being long is floccinaucinihilipilification.

Yeah, but that word was created as a joke. The longest non-technical, non-coined word is antidisestablishmentarianism.

Additionally, in a typical proportional font,
antidisestablishmentarianism
is longer than
floccinaucinihilipilification
in one sense. (Presumably also why antidisestablishmentarianism takes the gold over antidisestablishmentarianist?)

The longest word in the Portuguese language that's actually been used in a context other than "the longest word in X language" is "inconstitucionalissimamente".

Means "very unconstitutionally".

Sorry folks. None of those word facts are causing me to steal from dumpsters to fuel my stolen recently found newborn's meth addiction.

There's a species of jellyfish that is kind of immortal. So the rising sea levels are something to worry about.

Oh and if you're ever concerned about your residence being broken into to:

Pretty much every time I see a thing on Facebook like "X pop culture thing is now Y years old!" I feel this massive gut punch.

"Holy shit, 25 years? What the fuck have I been doing with my life? Holy Christ. 25 fucking years, man. I haven't accomplished shit. Before I know it, 25 more years will go by and I'll be like 'Where the fuck did they go?'"

And then Facebook has to make it even worse with the whole "hey, you posted something some amount of time ago" and it's the same shit all over again. "7 years? Fuuuuck. I thought I'd be a lot further along in my life by now."

No, I'm not sharing that shit, Facebook. I wasn't in a good place in my life then and I'm not happy with my lack of progress since then. Thanks for fucking my whole day up, assholes.

Life is an illusion and none of what you see or think you know is real.

But I'm always thinking. Does that mean at literally every moment in time, adultery is happening? Or was that an insult at my intelligence? If you'll excuse me, I have to pick my wife up from her personal trainer's house.

Let's get real, people! And by real, I mean fictional.

Firefly was canceled and there will never be anything with the exact same amazing feel to it.

Jason Statham will probably never be in the MCU.

The FFVII remake has a high probability of sucking.

Praise Jesus, especially when it's sunny outside because Jesus would totally be cool with you praising while you get a nice tan.
