    What is the longest English word containing no letters more than once?
    (and no hyphens either)

    I haven't a clue about that, but I do know one word that contains every letter.

    Ask how you see what is on the otherside of a glass wall.

    Geez, I'm blonde too and even I know you may not be able to walk around it. Since glass is a liquid, you just poke a hole in it and it drains away. The real problem is finding a big enough bucket.

    But there's a hole in the bucket,
    dear honestrosewater,
    dear honestrosewater.

    Not to worry, liquids take the shape of their container, so the glass will fill in the hole. :tongue2:

    Is this considering you have your finger in the hole? :smile:
