Longest Word In English

Methionylglutaminylarginyltyrosylglutamyl…..isoleucine. The chemical name of titin, a protein. The full word is 189,819 letters long and can take 36 hours to pronounce. It is not included in the dictionary (for obvious reasons) and is a pain in the ass for unfortunate bioengineers working with titin. I think whoever made this word should have just said fuck it and excluded givin Titin a chemical name. I feel bad for whatever Asian kid is unfortunate enough to have to memorize this shit for a Spelling Bee.
