venal - A real word with two principal meanings: 1) dishonest and ready to do anything in order to get money; and 2) capable of being corrupted. These are words we've come to need more than ever before when it comes to the upper reaches of government in the United States.

e.g., A mere seventy years ago, most people in the United States more or less trusted Washington and expected politicians to do their best to make the United States a good place for all of us to live in. Any expectations along those lines are now in the rearview mirror. Corruption in the federal government has always been something for US to be on the lookout for. Unfortunately, those in power get more venal with each election.

ventriculocisternostomies - "The surgical formation of an opening between the ventricles of the brain and the cerebellomedullary cistern."    Stumbled across this word in the dictionary.txt file linked to. Words are given by length, which is the primary reason for adding this entry. The final words are the longest words in English, according to the Oxford English Dictionary: pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconioses and pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, the first being the plural of the second.

e.g., Pediatric Hydrocephalus: "[Ventriculocisternostomies] occur when rupture of the ventricular walls, most often at the level of the lamina terminalis and of the posterior wall of the third ventricle, leads to free communication between the ventricle and subarachnoid space, in some cases leading to spontaneous compensation of hydrocephalus. Less frequently, ventricles may open into the subdural space or even into the frontal sphenoidal sinuses or ethmoidal cells, whose wall[s] have been progressivelly thinned by chronic increased intracranial pressure [17.54], with subsequent rhinoliquorrhea. These events are rare and may follow mild head injury."
