The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    My initial guess was aqueous. But I am wrong. I found out what it is and there are a few......

    I think the longest one with consonants is rhythm. I get off subject just to say I know something cool. Ha.

    I actually do know this (without Googling) because of my fascination with the topic.

    Well, I'm not sure if my answer is right, but I know yours is wrong because my word has more than five vowels.

    You spelled your word incorrectly, AFAIK... it's "queuing".

    Weird, I thought the only spelling was "queuing".

    Anyway, there is a word with more than five vowels, which is the one I was thinking of.

    Euouae. It's sort of an abridgment of a musical approach in Gregorian religious music.

    I guess maybe it's not widely recognized, but I've come across it in playing piano for church, and I know it can be used in Scrabble.

    6 vowels.

    6 vowels.
    From the site Guido posted (http://www.fun-with-words.com/word_vowels.html), euouae is correct, not queueing.
    To clear up some confusion:
    Blanche = slut on the Golden Girls
    Soprano = The Sopranos
    And no, my life does not revolve around the tv.
