Is it a thermometer? Or a least the fluid in a thermometer?

Is that my Grandad? He used to be a postman. And before he died he was pissing himself regularly.

Hey, wait a minute!  Ol' grouchy wants to know the answer to the first question. 

Seriously Omid, I did not look up the answer.  I just looked it up now.  When I wrote it, I thought it was a poor guess.  Wow!  [:0]  I surprised myself!  I think I know the answer to the next one, so I'll pass.

omid believes you DD  8)

Thank you John :)

If half of 5 were 3, what would one-third of 10 be? ;)

http://www.fun-with-words.com/word_longest.html

Is it,
(45)PNEUMONO­ULTRA­MICRO­SCOPIC­SILICO­VOLCANO­CONIOSIS also spelled as:

PNEUMONO­ULTRA­MICRO­SCOPIC­SILICO­VOLCANO­KONIOSIS)= a lung disease caused by breathing in particles of siliceous volcanic dust.
This is the longest word in any English dictionary. However, it was coined by Everett Smith, the President of The National Puzzlers' League, in 1935 purely for the purpose of inventing a new "longest word". The Oxford English Dictionary described the word as factitious. Nevertheless it also appears in the Webster's, Random House, and Chambers dictionaries.

(37) HEPATICO­CHOLANGIO­CHOLECYST­ENTERO­STOMIES = a surgical creation of a connection between the gall bladder and a hepatic duct and between the intestine and the gall bladder.
This is the longest word in Gould's Medical Dictionary.

(34) SUPER­CALI­FRAGI­LISTIC­EXPI­ALI­DOCIOUS = song title from the Walt Disney movie Mary Poppins.
It is in the Oxford English Dictionary.

"Edict" is in there, as is "Diction"

Can see anything longer without re-arranging the letters.

Ah yes, whatever happened to Mary Poppins? One of my absolute favorites? :) I mean, The Wizard Of Oz comes back regularly, but never does he bring Mary with him?

Why?
Dosen't she like us anymore?
