I hate earworms (things that stick in your head)


Recommended Posts

Today I learnt a new word, hippopotomonstroesquipedaliophobia which means a fear of long words and it is just stuck in my head because of 'the long word song' on YouTube.

Fun fact, Hippopotomonstroesquipedaliophobia is actually 5 letters longer than supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, which I thought was the longest word invented but the worlds longest word is actually 189,819 letters long and takes 3 and a half hours to pronounce correctly and is the chemical name for titin.
