Longest German Word Being Dropped: The longest German word is being officially dropped from the language. The word is 'Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz.' That's 63 letters, in case you don't want to count it. It's kind of an obscure legal term, coined by the Mecklenburg Western-Pomeranian state government in 1999 in order to facilitate testing of beef for mad cow disease.
