  1. Woah! What a word! I did not even figure out how to pronounce it until I watched the video. I also did not know that it means two to the eighth power. Very cool.

  2. This word, zenzizenzizenzic, is only worth 72 points in scrabble, but it would probably hit some triple letters or words and double letters or words

  3. That is just weird. Why does this word even exist? This is what I’m thinking

    Zenzizenzizenzic = weird.

    I can understand why it’s obsolete.

    1. Why do you think zenzizinzizinzic is weird? It’s just a regular word-nothing strange about it….. Kind of.

  4. I learned if you get 1 cent and then double it each time you lose a tooth, you would get more money than you would if you got 5 dollars each time you lose a tooth.

  5. Before I read the passage and watched the video, I thought zenzizenzizenzic was a made up word and had trouble saying it!

  6. Zenzizenzizenzic is hard to say, but I think it makes healthcare more fun. Anyway, healthcare in the future sounds very advanced! Cool.
