That is one big mother
Of a word. It would scare me too. Trying to pronounce it would give me
the shakes, but it's really the size that counts when generating fear.
People suffering this affliction fear long words.

SyFy has the movie 'Sharknado', followed by the movie 'Sharknado 2: The Second One'.
The US Naval Institute's news service has obtained a congressional memo stating that the US Navy will name a Military Sealift Command fleet oiler after gay-rights activist Harvey Milk.
According to the Naval Institute, Milk came from a Navy family, joined in 1951, served as a diving officer during the Korean War, and later received an honorable discharge as a lieutenant junior grade.
After his stint in the Navy, Milk continued his public service by becoming the first openly gay elected official in California in 1977. He was assassinated a year later by another city official. At the time of his death, he was wearing his Navy diving belt buckle.
Other civil-rights leaders such as Medgar Evers and Cesar Chavez have had Navy ships named after them as well.
The USNS Harvey Milk will be the second oiler of its class built by General Dynamics in San Diego. Oiler ships serve as support ships to other Navy vessels by replenishing them with fuel and sometimes food, ammunition, mail, and other goods while at sea.
Genetic tests confirm that a mysterious, unnamed species of beaked whale only rarely seen alive by Japanese fishermen roams the northern Pacific Ocean, according to research published this week.
The testing shows the black whales, with bulbous heads and beaks like porpoises, are not dwarf varieties of more common Baird's beaked whales, a slate-gray animal.
Japanese researchers sampled three black beaked whales that washed up on the north coast of Hokkaido, the country's most northern island, and wrote about them in a 2013 paper. The challenge to confirm the existence of the new animal was finding enough specimens from a wider area for testing and matching genetic samples, said Phillip Morin, a National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration research molecular biologist.
He and his team uncovered five other whales, all found in Alaska, that matched the species found in Japan.
"Clearly this species is very rare and reminds us how much we have to learn about the ocean and even some of its largest inhabitants," he said in an announcement.
Justin Bieber rejected the Republican National Convention.
TMZ reports that the singer was offered $5 million by the RNC to perform at the convention nominating Donald Trump as the Republican candidate for president.
But Bieber ultimately turned down the offer, after his manager considered quitting over the potential gig and LeBron James urged Bieber to stay away from the convention, according to the site.
It would've been a windfall for an apparent 45-minute show, and according to TMZ's sources connected to CAA (Bieber's talent agency), the promoter for the event assured Bieber's team the performance was "not political." But Bieber's manager Scooter Braun and CAA felt differently.
Braun is a supporter of Hillary Clinton and reportedly said he would quit if Bieber did the show, as he believed "the GOP was using Bieber as its tool."
China wants everyone to stop stealing its Great Wall.
Officials from the State Administration of Cultural Heritage have announced they will begin conducting regular inspections and will carry out random checks along the wall to ensure local authorities are complying with national protection laws, the Guardian reports.
While the country has worked to preserve the UNESCO site for decades, protection measures have not been as successful as they would like. Nearly one third of the Ming dynasty-era (1368-1644) wall has disappeared, and officials blame environmental causes and human damage.
The millions of tourists who visit the historic site can cause problems when they hike along remote stretches, but it's not only visitors hurting the wall. China's Great Wall Society has said local people who live near the wall regularly steal bricks from it to use in buildings or to sell. State-run media also reported that some villagers took bricks featuring historic engravings to sell to tourists for 30 yuan ($4.50).
U.S. soldier Chelsea Manning, imprisoned for passing classified files to WikiLeaks, now stands accused of misconduct stemming from her suicide attempt earlier this month and could land in solitary confinement indefinitely, her lawyers said on Thursday.
The ACLU, which has acknowledged a suicide attempt by Manning earlier this month, said the 28-year-old soldier remains despondent over what the civil liberties group describes as the Army's continued denial of appropriate health care for her.
The ACLU denounced the latest disciplinary action as "unconscionable."
"While Chelsea is suffering the darkest depression she has experienced since her arrest, the government is taking actions to punish her for that pain," ACLU staff lawyer Chase Strangio said in a statement.
The circumstances of the incident have not been disclosed, but the ACLU said it occurred in her cell and that she lost consciousness.

Bill Cosby has dropped a lawsuit that demanded the accuser in his criminal case repay the money from their confidential 2006 court settlement.
Cosby had sued Andrea Constand for breach of contract for speaking to police who reopened the criminal investigation last year. His lawyers argued that her police statements, along with two tweets and brief comments to a Toronto newspaper, violated the confidentiality clause.
A judge this month upheld her right to talk to police, but said Cosby could pursue the other issues. Cosby, though, dropped the suit entirely on Thursday. The move comes a week after he switched law firms for the second time in about a year.
"With a court validation of his ability to proceed ... Mr. Cosby has today stepped away from that suit and will instead focus his efforts on defending himself against the claims that have been lodged against him," his lawyer said in a statement.

Genetically modified wheat developed by Monsanto Co, and never approved by federal regulators, has been found growing in a Washington state farm field, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said on Friday.
The discovery of 22 unapproved genetically modified (GMO) wheat plants has prompted an investigation by federal and state investigators - the third such discovery in three years.
A farmer found the GMO wheat in a field that has not been planted since 2015. The plants had been identified as being one of Monsanto's experimental varieties "a few weeks ago," a spokesman from the Washington State Department of Agriculture said.
The USDA is testing grain harvested from the farmer's other wheat fields as a precaution, the agency said. Officials also reached out to at least one trade group earlier this week, and alerted importers on Thursday.
There are currently no commercially approved genetically modified wheat varieties and incidences of rogue plants are rare. The first case was in 2013 in Oregon, which prompted buyers including South Korea and Japan to stop buying U.S. wheat. More unapproved wheat was found in Montana in 2014.

He got it from his mama. Twitter is going wild over an old photo of Donald Trump's late mother, Mary Trump, in which she sports an almost identical hairstyle to that of her son.
In the screen grab from a 1997 interview with Australian TV network Foxtel, Mary is seen with an extremely tall and swoopy combover in the exact same shade as the Republican presidential nominee's famous coif. She's wearing big gold earrings and a large pearl necklace, and the uncanny family resemblance is undeniable.
The photo resurfaced on social media after Foxtel aired a new documentary, Who IsDonald Trump? earlier this month, which included footage from Mary's old interview.
According to The New Yorker, Mary was an immigrant from Scotland who moved to New York City. It was there she met builder Frederick Christ "Fred" Trump at a dance. They married and settled in Jamaica, Queens. As her husband's fortune grew, she became a regular on the New York social scene. Mary died in New York City in 2000 at age 88.
