Re: NO WAY
I actually got this fact from page 96 of "The Top 10 pf Everthing 2001" by Russell Ash....

...and even though you couldn't very well verify it by Google, since it's documented in a 3 year old book, and it is that long, then there's no way nobody would make an even longer word, now could they? LOL (gonna cross-comment this)

That isn't a word at all. It seems like someone just strung a whole bunch of latin/suffixes together. Plus I Googled it and nothing. And Google is always right.
