    The longest word in the English language, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. The only other word with the same amount of letters is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconioses, its plural.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    Especially for Ymaginatif...[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    The combination of "ough" can be pronounced in 9 different ways.

    The following sentence contains them all:

    "A rough-coated, dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough; after falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed."

    Ireland:

    The only place where...

    If you die from alcohol poisoning, you're considered a lightweight,

    'Feck off' means 'Are you serious?', ... ... . The person that you insult most is probably your best friend.

    Saying 'I will yea' means that you definitely won't.

    "[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] it, it's grand' means that you couldn't be bother to finish it properly.

    'He's fond of a drink' means he suffers from severe life-threatening alcoholism.

    Saying you're going for a drink means you might not be seen again for 3 days.

    Crisps are called 'Taytos' and fizzy drinks are called 'minerals'.

    'For the craic' is the best reason for doing anything.

    The best cure for a hangover is more drink.

    Nobody can go a day without saying 'Jaysus'.

    Tea is the solution to every problem.

    I got stuck behind a tractor' is a perfectly valid reason for being late.

    You can insert the name of a gardening tool into any sentence and it still makes sense, e.g.
    'I had a rake of drink last night' or "I'll be out in a minute, I'm just shoveling down the dinner'.

    It's perfectly acceptable to call your mother 'mammy' even though you are a fully grown adult.

    Saying 'Now we're sucking diesel' means that you are happy with the outcome of the situation.

    Drinking 'tae' is everyone's favourite past time.

    The word 'like' goes in every sentence.

    You can say "Any craic' to a Garda and you won't get arrested.

    and Potatoes are 5 of your 5 a day.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    Indeed, she done very well for her country. Great to see a gold finally making it's way onto Irish soil, not to leave the guys out who picked up a silver and two bronzes.

    According to a new survey, women say they feel more comfortable undressing in front of men than they do undressing in front of other women.

    They say that women are too judgmental, where, of course, men are just grateful.scratch

    Manure : In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before the invention of commercial fertilizers, so large shipments of manure were quite common.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, not only did it become heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by product is methane gas of course. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen. Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOM! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening

    After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the instruction ' Stow high in transit ' on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.

    Thus evolved the term ' S.H..I.T ' , (Stow High In Transit) which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very day.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    Haha, much more true than:

    Etymology:
    Ultimately < the same Germanic base as dung v. The attested Old English form shows a (jōn-stem)
    derivative formation from the zero-grade of this base, with doubling of
    the consonant caused by the stem-forming suffix; compare Middle Dutch schitte, schit faeces, filth (Dutch regional schit). The Older Scots forms scheitt, sheitte at Forms show open syllable lengthening of original short ĭ to long close ē . Earlier currency of forms with original long i (which are otherwise not securely attested before the 18th cent.: see shite n.) is perhaps implied by place names; however, the evidence is problematic. A place-name element s(c)hite- is occasionally attested: (a) in combination with words for ‘stream’ (perhaps in sense ‘sewer’; compare discussion at shitter n.), as Schitebroc , Shitebroc , Lincolnshire (1086; also Schytebroc
    (13th cent.); now Skidbrooke; the modern form shows Scandinavian
    influence on the initial consonant cluster, which could also explain the
    vowel quantity (if long) of the early forms), Schitewellemor , Warwickshire (1348; compare also Schetewellwey (1348); now Shutwell Farm); and (b) in combination with the element burh (see borough n.; perhaps (humorously) denoting the location of a public privy), as Schiteburglane , Schyteburghlane (street name), Romford, Essex (1272; 1366 as Schit(e)burne Lane ), Schitebur'lan' (street name), Oxford (c1290; 1362 as Shitebourne , Schitebarnlane ), Schiteburuelane (street name), London (1305; 1272–3 as Shitteborwelane , 1311 as Shitheburnlane ). However, the quantity of the stem vowel of s(c)hite- in these examples is uncertain: if short, it might represent an otherwise unattested Old English by-form *scite ( < the same base as dung n., probably showing an ōn -stem or an i
    -stem, hence without gemination of the consonant), which would not be
    inconsistent with the later forms of the place names. (The form Schetewellwey might hence show a reflex of *scite with Middle English open syllable lengthening.)
