    seven O in one word!

    Did you know that Russian word обороноспособность (actually spoken like [abaronaspasobnast']) has whole seven O's? The word (it's a noun) means defensive potention. It's real!
    Я так думаю.

    Not only that, it is also an entirely fictional word that exists nowhere but in the imagination of one certain upside down bird!

    Since he's the first person to suffer from this rare condition, I think it's only fitting that he have the right to name it.
