    Antidisestablishmentarianism: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antidis...shmentarianism

    I used to believe that this was the longest word in the English language.

    Anatidaephobia is the fear of being watched by a duck!

    I'd love to see a video of exposure therapy being done on someone who suffers from this.

    How about regional...

    Commonly used here in Appalachia "cattywampus"
    Means to be askew or off center...

    I used in one day at a meeting with some engineers from Detroit, they loved it.... made me write it down for them.

    funny thing is we also have the mythical "Wompas Cat" in Appalachia....

    Here in New England most people say bubbler. I think that pretty much everywhere else in the entire world people say water fountain...not that those words are particularly interesting. Just thought I would point it out.

    *edit*
    Me and n. bicalcarata both live in RI. We must have both been writing at the same time.
