189,819 Letters? Seriously?

The world's longest phobia is the

"Irrational fear of Titin the protein that in humans is encoded by the TTN gene. Titin is a giant protein that functions as a molecular spring which is responsible for the passive elasticity of muscle. It is composed of 244 individually folded protein domains connected by unstructured peptide sequences. These domains unfold when the protein is stretched and refold when the tension is removed."

OK, so I was only able to fit 16,030 of the 189,819 letters in the phobia down, sorry, but GBATemp would probably kill me if I did more. So, here goes.

1. It's a real word. http://othyr.com/titin.html
2. It's commonly referred to as "Titinphobia", or the "Fear of Titin"

Comments

That is so long, lots of Ys and Ls, how can you be afraid of Titin though, every person has it ?
 
1. It's a real word
Is it really? I see that as the connected names of ingredients of proteins that make up titin with "phobia" attached at the end, I won't really count it as a real word, more like... "jumbled sentence"

But then again, we have "muggle" as an official word, maybe I'm actually wrong

Okay, did a few searches, and the damn thing truly is the name of titin, which chemical formulae is
C132.983 H211.861 N36.149 O40.883 S693

However, it's a name, not really a word in a sense that it's plausible to use that in a conversation.
Well, it depends on how you define "word" actually

No, you're correct... sort of.

However, professional dictionary writers regard generic names of chemical compounds as verbal formulae rather than English words.

Therefore, it's not a legitimate English word :-\

Kinda cool though.

EDIT:
Or.... exactly what you said before me :P
 
I heard of this word years ago; I was reading about...words...just because I could though.

Zero. Since it's not technically a word.
(not even with the new "proper noun" fucking bullshit asshat nutrubbing dongstrangling cockhouse rule that was changed {yes, i hate the idea of that rule being changed...} because a chemical compound is a formula rather than a 'word')

See the quote above yours.

That type of person.

:D
 
Out of sheer boredom I ran the full name through an online scrabble points calculator. The full name from the website is worth 334,825 points.

If I ever won EuroMillions or something with one of the 75 million rollovers, I'd have a scrabble board built big enough for me to put this down on a triple word score. Just for the lolz.

Nobody really made it. If you study Chemistry, you'll understand. They basically made a form of naming each protein - just like in English we use vowels & consonants to form words. But, their "vowels & consonants" are words. When you're naming small proteins, the system words beautifully. Then you hit proteins like this...And it just goes on forever, since it's made up of dozens of smaller proteins.

So basically, nobody actually made up the "word" (it's a name.) They're just following a set of rules, which eventually they reach the end, and there you have it.

[quote name='johncenafan427' post='2952386' date='Jun 30 2010, 02:01 PM']who comes up with these names??

seriously........

When you're getting paid to do it, you've got a very, very long time.
