You only left out one letter...what the hell are the four stars for? :tongue2:


My high school French teacher used to threaten to defenestrate us all the time (in French, of course). :rofl:

I remember thinking how cool it is that Lake Titicaca drains into Lake Poopó.

But then there is nothing like a trip to the magical Pupu Springs, near Takaka.

When in Chinese restaurants, I like to order the "Human" dishes.

No one's going to make a remark about this? :confused:
I got here late, and spent about 20 minutes going back over old posts to see if Gravenworld ? was male or female. I'm still not sure.
So... clever retorts pending... (But as far as the spelunking is concerned, I'm glad that I'm not claustrophobic...)

I've actually worked the word 'antidisestablishmentarianism' into a conevrstaion before (the only chance you ever have to do this is when discussing the Anglican church in the UK in the 18th century).

The rotating brush roll in a Hoover is properly called the disturbulator. :biggrin:

The Germans call the TV das Fernsehen - "the far seer". I always liked that. It seems to me that the longest name of a road is also German - it combines the names of the villages that lie along its path.

Damned Welsh again. According to the ex-from-hell, it's probably prounounced 'Anlock' or some silly-ass thing like that. :rolleyes:

I've always been fond of woebedraggled. Not even sure if its a word but that's how I feel first thing in the morning, well afternoon as it often is.

Nah, it's pronounced as it's spelt. Well, as much as any other Welsh word can be (Oh the joys of quadruple 'l's.). I don't think it counts though, the Welsh invented it in recent times as a tourist attraction. Why else would you want to go to Anglesey?

I think that one's a regional variation. Here it's 'woebegotten'. The real word behind it is 'woebegone'.

Tsk, I've posted this before. According to the "Guinness book of world records"

"The city with the longest name in common usage is in New Zealand. Taumatawhakatangihangakoauotamateturipukakapikimaungahoro-Nukupokaiwhenua kitanatahu translates as the 'place where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid, climbed and swallowed mountains, known as land-eater, played his flute to his loved one'. This is the place name recognised by the Guinness Book of Records.

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch currently has the prestige of having the UK's longest place name."

Hey, you gotta admit I got a lot closer than most colonists would have. (I even thought that the first part might be Angel (not Angle). The trick is that as with everything else about the Welsh, it's not too bad if you ignore 90% of it. :wink:
