    You gotta be kidding me. That is a supercalifragilistic word at the very least. What the heck does it mean? Or what is the words origin? Native American? Wait, that looks like Hawaiian. Is it?

    Hm. And I thought there was a longer place name in Wales. Ah, well, been wrong before.

    Ever hear of Mahatma Ghandi?
    It is said that he never wore shoes, resulting in large callouses on the bottoms of his feet.
    He was also quite thin and frail, and believed in the spirit world and afterlife.
    It has been said that he lived on a diet of dried fish, which gave him bad breath.
    How would one describe such a man?

    And I have trouble getting them to get my name right: "Larry Jones." Please spell that. "Larry - L-A-R-R" Was that an E? "No. LARRY - L-A-R-R-Y!" Was that an E? "NO! A Y! L-A-R-R-Y! My last name is Jones - J" Was that a G? "NO! JONES! J! Then O" Was that a U? "Can I get some one who speaks English?" I SPEAK ENGLISH! "OK, can I get someone who speaks English as first or second language?"

    The name "Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu" translates roughly as "The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the slider, climber of mountains, the land-swallower who travelled about, played his nose flute to his loved one".

    Reminds me of a story from back in grade school days. It was about a boy that fell into a well. He had a ridiculously long name and when another boy went to get help, he couldn't say the name because he was out of breath. The name of the boy was:
    Tikki Tikki Tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi- pip peri pembo. He almost drowns because his name is so long and it was considered an offense to not speak the whole name. The moral of the story was that this was the reason many Chinese began to name their children with very short names. Come to think of it, he may have been from that city...
