  2. hi sohini,
    good things to do and somethings though good to read but cannot be done. where did you get this word pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis from and what does it mean….,….????


    • Hi Manoj! A friend of mine introduced me to that word. It’s the name of a lung disease and also the longest English word to be published in a dictionary! Thanks for reading, and I quite like the concept of your website 🙂


    • The word “Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconoconiosis” is a word that refers to a lung disease contracted from the inhalation of very fine silica particles, specifically from a volcano; medically, it is the same as silicosis. It is also considered the longest word in the common dictionary.
      Hope that helps.

  3. I already know how to spell pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. I learned that like when I was 5 because I once searched what was the longest word ever 😀


  4. Love your list. I have a nephew that can’t stop saying he’s bored. I changed his name to bored. Now, I have a list for him the next time he complains to me that he is bored. Thank You, and for the new word.


  5. I see you wrote this a while ago – so I’m late to the party! But I really like #7. I’m going to try that when I’m next bored!


    • Haha, it’s never too late to join this party! I’m glad you like it, let me know how that goes for you. 😀 One of my favourites is number 9, although I’ve yet to try it myself…
