Waiting, and what to do with the Time

Hold it

Hold it

Hold it

How long has it been?


Three minutes

Shit!

Fact: The wood frog can hold its pee for up to eight months.


You have three and a half hours to kill
You could watch a double feature
Or an epic adventure
A short novella
Go for a long hike
Or marathon on a bike
Or say one fucking word
Nobody has ever heard

Fact: The longest English word is 189,819 letters long.

It is the full name for the protein nicknamed titin and would take approximately three and a half hours to say out loud.


That’s a long time to wait for………………………………..
……………………………………
……………………………………
………………………………….a

Fact: No number before 1,000 contains the letter A


Lost in a lengthy word
blindly drawn to an end
Pointed without point
Several hooks and a bend
We have said enough
With a single letter
Yet, to the constraints
Our language is a fetter

Fact: Queue is the only word in the English language that is still pronounced the same way when the last four letters are removed.

    EMPTY
    MPTY
    M TY
    M T

      I find endless joy playing with them, like most of us here.
      I wanted to write a form like that, removing one letter at a time. Can’t remember what it’s called πŸ˜‚πŸ’š
