In Wales (country that is part of the United Kingdom), there is a village called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (58 letters), which in English means "Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of Saint Tysilio near the red cave." The locals call it Llanfairpwll. Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.com is the longest single word .com domain name in the world

Good lord, I cant even pronounce that! lol

In LA it is a crime for dogs to mate within 500 yards of a church. Breaking this law is punishable by a fine of $500 and/or six months in prison.

All pilots and air traffic controllers involved with international flights must speak English, so there are no interpretation problems. And because all the pilots speak English, the two words that are more often than not the last two recorded on flight recorders retrieved after a crash are "Oh, shit".
