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.

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.

Omid, there’s one part I clearly have trouble with in your latest riddle ... should it ask “What am I” or “Who am I”, depending on whether it’s a thing or a person?  If it’s a thing, then it can’t really ask “What am I”, now can it?

A politician was giving speech to the crowd, people got bored and wanted the politician to stop it. A man from the crowd write something on a piece of paper and gave to the politician, as soon as the politician read the paper he sat down quietly.
What was written on the paper? [;)]
