    common knowledge or neat trivia?

    Locked

    by oz_media ·

    Today someone on a Vancouver radio show called in the longest word you can type on one row of the keyboard.

    Rather than say what the word is (yet), I was wondering if it was common knowledge or neat trivia as it’s new to me anyway.

    I thought it was kinda neat trivia.

        It’s the first I heard of it, so I wasn’t sure if every one knew already and I had just missed it before.

        I know it may come as quite a shock to you (hope you’re sitting down), but I’ve never taken a keyboarding class or anything where you’d probably pick up something like that.

        (True story, not a single typing class! Who’d a thunk it?)

          from just being a computer geek kid…reading all those dorky articles in mags and G-files from BBSes.

      …is it ten letters long, faintly homological and a common cause of what would come to be known as carpal tunnel syndrome?

      I know I’ve heard it before.

      … but I can never remember what it is… I’m not much of a wealth of worthless information, that’s hubby’s dept. 🙂

      Is anyone going to let the rest of us in on what it is, or are you just going to dance around it like a bunch of f****** ballerinas?!? Christ, people. Tell us what it is.

        are you Alanis Morrisette now? And I hoped you’d look better than that.
