What is the world's longest place name?

A little village in Wales boasts the longest place name at 58 letters:
Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch...

...But New Zealand makes the same claim with a hill containing 92 letters:
Tetaumatawhakatangihangakoauaotamateaurehaeaturipuk
apihimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuaakitanarahu...

...But after some further digging we found the winner to be Bangkok. OK, so that's only 7 letters, but the official ceremonial name of Bangkok is Krung Thep Mahanakhon for short meaning 'City of Angels'.

The full name of Bangkok has many variations in spelling but we found what is believed to be the official spelling coming in at 163 letters:
Krungthepmahanakornamornratanakosinmahintarayutthaya
mahadilokphopnopparatrajathaniburiromudomrajaniwesmaha
satharnamornphimarnavatarnsathitsakkattiyavisanukamprasit

Just imagine that I live in that Wales village. When people ask me "where do you live? I will be like " @#^$&*#&%!&# "

The signboard's length, it might be even wider than my bedroom.

Just copy and paste of that name and find more in google

What is the longest book ever written in the world?

Long long ago in a country far far away...

During the Ming Dynasty at least 3,000 scholars spent 4 years, beginning in 1403, to work on the Yongle Dadian, an encyclopedia with 11,095 volumes and 22,877 chapters.

There are an estimated 370 million Chinese characters used.

Gosh, 22,877 chapters? Now I'm merely surviving just for like 10 chapters.

What is the world's longest fish name?

If you're looking for fish with long names you'd better get out your scuba gear and head to Hawaii, that where the fish with the world's longest name lives.

Now you may be thinking you're smart and figure the answer is the trigger fish which, by it's Hawaiian name is called humuhumunukUnukuapuaa, but you are wrong.

The trophy for the longest fish name goes to the longnose butterflyfish, better know to Hawaiians as lauwiliwilinukunukuoioi.

Here is your chance to redeem yourself: say lauwiliwilinukunukuoioi 5 times fast.


Lauwiliwilinukunukuoioi

What is the longest job title in the world?

London, England News Ad:
Wanted: Temporary part-time libraries North-West inter-library loan business unit administration assistant.

As best we can figure out, they want a part time librarian temporarily.

Seems in the UK 70% of people prefer a grander job title over a pay raise. The applicants for this job will probably be working for free.

This is sure not enough space for job title when I need to fill form.

What is the world's longest name of a lake?

A short answer: Lake Webster, Massachusetts.

We know, you didn't come here for the short answer. Lake Webster as called by the Nipmucks has a much longer name, in fact a few so take your pick:

Who has the longest last name in the world?

Finding this one out was a lot harder then we thought, but here is what we came up with:

In 1996 Guinness listed this 17 letter surname as the longest English surname:
Featherstonehaugh

We also managed to find what is possibly the longest full name ever:
Adolph Blaine Charles David Earl Frederick Gerald Hubert Irvin John Kenneth Lloyd Martin Nero
Oliver Paul Quincy Randolph Sherman Thomas Uncas Victor William Xerxes Yancy Zeus
Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorff


So what is the longest movie title ever?

This is an easy one:

Who has the longest neck in the world?

A custom of the Padaung Tribe of Burma is for their women to elongate their necks by inserting more and more copper coils between their head and shoulders.

The longest extension on record is 40 cm. or 15 3/4" inches.

Yay, world record for Myanmar. I know they do really have long neck. I wonder how they sleep.

What is the world longest's paint title?

The world's longest painting title goes to a painting painted by Mody Thomas and the painting can be seen here.

In all the title contains 38 words, 308 characters, not counting spaces and if you wish to count the spaces then it paints in at an oily 345 characters.

So, without dragging this out any longer, here is the title:

The affection, admiration, abundance, compassion, composure, cheerfulness, contentment, courage, delight, excitement, fulfillment, gratefulness, harmony, interest, intimacy, integrity, modesty, relaxation and the togetherness of lovers standing under the bountifully elegant and outstandingly vivacious tree of goodness, richness and enchantment

So what was the longest jail sentence in the world?

Did they deserve it? You be the judge.

Name: Gabriel March Grandos
Crime: Confidense tricksters
Requested sentence:

384,912 Years

Given sentence: 7,109 Years
Date: March 11 1972

More: He was charged with 42,768 instances of failing to deliver letters. I think I know how we got the term 'Postal' now.

Name: Dudley Wayne
Crime: Murder
Given sentence: 10,000 Years
Date: 1981




More: He was sentenced for murdering his wife, mother-in-law and a college student.

Even more: Nowadays he'd get a slap on the wrist and a 'don't do it again' lecture.

Why don't they just give him death sentence? Will he still be in jail even though he is ghost or something?

So what was the longest roller coaster in the world?

What is the world longest street's name?

We had a bit of a tough time finding out this record but here goes.

We actually found two streets with the what we believe to be the world's longest name:

  • Bolderwood Arboretum Ornamental Drive is located in New Forest, Great Britain.

  • Northeast Kentucky Industrial Parkway is located in, you guessed it, Kentucky.

Both street names contain 34 letters and 37 characters if you count spaces are are the longest street names in their respective countries.

Thanks to a correction we were sent the name of a street in Poland containing 65 letters or 72 characters counting spaces, the world's longest street name being:

Dwudziestego Pierwszego Praskiego Pułku Piechoty imienia Dzieci Warszawy.

What is the world's longest song title?

Swedish group Rednex are the proud owners of the world's longest song title.

At 52 words and 305 characters, (including spaces) here it is:

The Sad But True Story Of Ray Mingus, The Lumberjack Of Bulk Rock City, And His Never Slacking Stribe In Exploiting The So Far Undiscovered Areas Of The Intention To Bodily Intercourse From The Opposite Species Of His Kind, During Intake Of All The Mental Condition That Could Be Derived From Fermentation

And here are the lyrics, just slightly longer than the title:

It's been a pretty long time, baby
But now, I'm back in town
It's time to leave your husband
Now you know that little clown

Last time we were seeing
Didn't you beg for more
It's OK with me as long
As you do it four on the floor

This is what I'm giving you, you'll get it all tonight
You will be my lover, but not my tender wife
I'll be harder than your husband, I'll be harder than your man
I'll hit you with my twenty inch until you can not stand
I'll be harder than your husband, I'll be harder than your man
I'll hit you with my twenty inch until you can not stand

I've missed the little North Pole
On the bottom of my twister
Here's the one-eyed-worm
Now you'll never be a sister

Well, it's time to leave now
You better walk her home
Don't forget you underwear
You look pretty stoned

This is what I'm giving you, you'll get it all tonight
You will be my lover, but not my tender wife
I'll be harder than your husband, I'll be harder than your man
I'll hit you with my twenty inch until you can not stand

I'll be harder than your husband, I'll be harder than your man
I'll hit you with my twenty inch until you can not stand
I'll be harder than your husband, I'll be harder than your man
I'll be harder than your husband, I'll be harder than your man

In 1987 Game Theory released their album, Lolita Nation, of which track #22 was titled:

All Clockwork and No Bodily Fluids Makes Hal a Dull Metal Humbert In Heaven Every Elephant Baby Wants to Be So Full of Sting Paul Simon in the Park with Canticle – But You Can't Pick Your Friends Vacuum Genesis DEFMACROS HOWSOMETH INGDOTIME SALENGTHS OMETHINGL ETBFOLLOW AAFTERNOO NGETPRESE NTMOMENTI FTHINGSWO NTALWAYSB ETHISWAYT BCACAUSEA BWASTEAFT ERNOONWHE NEQBMERET URNFROMSH OWLITTLEG REENPLACE 27

In all there are 59 words and 344 characters but the capitalized words are just fragments of LISP code so we'll leave it up to you to decide which song takes home the record.

What is the world's longest TV?

The world's longest television can be found at the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

I want to own this. Wait!! I need to have enough space in my living room.

So what exactly is the longest word in the world?

It all depends on your point of view, but here goes:

Officially the longest word is 'floccinaucinihilipilification' at 29 characters, meaning 'the act of estimating as worthless'.

Then there's 'antidisestablishmentarianism' at 28 letters, meaning 'opposition to the disestablishment of the Church of England'. It is often considered the longest word as it has an actual meaning instead of being created just to be long.

Unofficially the longest word is 'pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis' at 45 characters, meaning 'a lung disease'. It was created solely for the purpose of being the longest word, however, it does appear in a few dictionaries.

The longest place name is that of a hill in New Zealand at 85 characters:

TAUMATAWHAKATANGIHANGAKOAUAUOTAMATEATURIPU
KAKAPIKIMAUNGAHORONUKUPOKAIWHENUAKITANATAHU

The word with the most letters is a name of protein, as a name, it technically does not qualify as a word, but at 1913 characters, we just had to include it. Theoretically these names can contain an infinite amount of characters, but this one qualifies as it has actually been used in a medical journal.

methionylglutaminylarginyltyrosylglutamylserylleucyl phenylalanylalanylglutaminylleucyllysylglutamylarginyl lysylglutamylglycylalanylphenylalanylvalylprolylphenyl alanylvalylthreonylleucylglycylaspartylprolylglycylisol eucylglutamylglutaminylserylleucyllysylisoleucylaspartyl threonylleucylisoleucylglutamylalanylglycylalanylaspartyl alanylleucylglutamylleucylglycylisoleucylprolylphenyl alanylserylaspartylprolylleucylalanylaspartylglycylprolyl threonylisoleucylglutaminylasparaginylalanylthreonylleucyl arginylalanylphenylalanylalanylalanylglycylvalylthreonyl prolylalanylglutaminylcysteinylphenylalanylglutamyl methionylleucylalanylleucylisoleucylarginylglutaminyllysyl histidylprolylthreonylisoleucylprolylisoleucylglycylleucyl leucylmethionyltyrosylalanylasparaginylleucylvalylphenyl alanylasparaginyllysylglycylisoleucylaspartylglutamylphenyl alanyltyrosylalanylglutaminylcysteinylglutamyllysylvalyl glycylvalylaspartylserylvalylleucylvalylalanylaspartylvalyl prolylvalylglutaminylglutamylserylalanylprolylphenylalanyl arginylglutaminylalanylalanylleucylarginylhistidylasparaginyl valylalanylprolylisoleucylphenylalanylisoleucylcysteinyl prolylprolylaspartylalanylaspartylaspartylaspartylleucyl leucylarginylglutaminylisoleucylalanylseryltyrosylglycyl arginylglycyltyrosylthreonyltyrosylleucylleucylserylarginyl alanylglycylvalylthreonylglycylalanylglutamylasparaginyl arginylalanylalanylleucylprolylleucylasparaginylhistidyl leucylvalylalanyllysylleucyllysylglutamyltyrosylasparaginyl alanylalanylprolylprolylleucylglutaminylglycylphenylalanyl glycylisoleucylserylalanylprolylaspartylglutaminylvalyllysyl alanylalanylisoleucylaspartylalanylglycylalanylalanylglycyl alanylisoleucylserylglycylserylalanylisoleucylvalyllysylisol eucylisoleucylglutamylglutaminylhistidylasparaginylisoleucyl glutamylprolylglutamyllysylmethionylleucylalanylalanylleucyl lysylvalylphenylalanylvalylglutaminylprolylmethionyllysyl alanylalanylthreonylarginylserine

Okay, okay, this is totally junk. This is just like I'm writing astjiogjujljdioeuioeuyjodijgldgj. But acutally, you can copy and paste that methion-something and find in google.

    This would be, in my opinion, a great site if only I could read all the letters against the background. Lose the denim and pick something lighter or use white lettering where the background is dark.
