One man has decided to record himself reciting the world's longest word at 189,819 letters long.

Yahoo! News said:

The English word has 189,819 letters and takes more than 3. 5 hours to pronounce. This video is so boring it makes waiting in line at to renew your driver's license seem exciting.

That word sounds like Russian or some European language, and it keeps repeating similar sounding letters so its like bunch of words put together and nothing like English at all.  But if they say its English then so be it.

Ummmm, maybe this is just my dumbness coming out buuuut.... how did the reading start with the clock behind him starting at 12 and when he finished it was at a little after 4.  The only problem is that the video only lasts 3:33??  Smoke wafting out of my ears from all the gears that are grinding.  lol

The the video on Youtube is 3 1/2 hours long...

So how long is the original/unedited?

I was under the impression that he did it in one go. It seems he did this over days (judging by the state of the flowers towards the end)

Right, and the name is just created on their own, poped out from nothing.

I don't understand what you mean?

:blush:

The YouTube link is to a video which is 3 hours 33 minutes long it's not a 5 minute highlight clip.
