Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia

The steam has really seem to run out on my blog. Not that I don't want to post; it's just that when I'm at work I usually work, and when I'm at home I play WOW. Warsong Gultch will be the end of me I swear.

In any case I did learn something cruel and unusual I had to post about. Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is a phobia like any other and the link is to a real website with the intent to help those who suffer from this phobia. It's the fear of long words. I feel really bad for people with this phobia.

I'm glad that's not me.

I'm still bugging over the ß-Galactosetransacetylase that I learned from Waldbeiser in Genetics. If anyone had the phobia of long words in that class, I think we'd have heard them scream all the time.
