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 🙂
Number 9 makes no sense but thank-you for the list

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.

thanks for going thru my website and more so for getting back. I got to learn something new.
No problem! I did too 🙂 Thanks for looking at my website too, and for commenting!
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 😀
Wow, you are one step ahead of me then! I always forget whether there’s a ‘u’ in ‘monoultra’ or not 😛
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.
Thanks so much, I’m glad I could help 😀 Your nephew sounds sweet!
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…
Thank you for liking my blog,
You’re welcome! 🙂
