Idleness Of The Left Hand

In a random news factoid, people who want to know what is the longest word you can type on a keyboard with just your left hand have a new champion.

The former record holder, stewardesses, comes in at a healthy 12 letters. Some argue that reverberated and desegregated are just as long, but stewardesses is more popular because it's easier to remember and they are arguably better looking.

However, people with too much time on their hands and a Unix dictionary have discovered a 13-letter word to type with just your left hand: devertebrated.

It sounds a bit like a rejected Ramones song: I wanna be devertebrated.

Other than de-boning fish, I can't find much use for this.
