    In short :
    = Tobacco Mosaic Virus, Dahlemense Strain.

    This word has appeared in the American Chemical Society's Chemical Abstracts and is thus considered by some to be the longest real word.

      How wierd can it be if a doctor tells whats wrong with you and hearing this long word?

      That would be like you recieving a punch in the face.

              That's Bullshit, to put it politely.

              The longest word in the English language, as in the dictionaries is:

              "Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis"

              which is a lung disease prevalent among coal miners. Obviously saying this word each time they diagnose it is a pain, so doctors often shorten it to simply pneumonoconiosis.
              "The Director also sets the record straight on what would happen if oxygen masks were to drop from the ceiling: The passengers freak out with abandon, instead of continuing to chat amiably, as though lunch were being served, like they do on those in-flight safety videos."
