When I first saw the title, I thought maybe you had some photos of something slightly more interesting than a "Sit-in."

pneumonoultramicrosopicsilicovolcanoconiosis: a lung disease caused by the inhalation of silicate or very fine quartz dust.


^that is the longest word in the english language. boo on anyone that thinks its antidisestablishmentarianism or, god forbid, supercalifragilisticexpialidoscious (sp?). neither are longer than pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis and the latter isnt even a word (regardless of what oxford has to say)
