    The word must be naming each and every atom in some incredibly complex molecule. :crazy: 

    EDIT: Well, I was kinda right.

    By the time you'd finished saying it to the person you were telling it to they would've gotten bored and left.

    Imagine two people having a conversation about this thing. They'd be there for days just saying the word to each other while in the process of chatting.
    Indeed.

    They should have sung this in Mary Poppins instead of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. I wonder how long it would take Blurr to pronounce it. :D

    Ok, I've now been watching it for 10 minutes. The only way in hell this word was created is someone fell asleep at their keyboard and movement of their head while sleeping came up with this word. Insane word.
