Norman thought was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was wrong. That makes sense too.

It doesn't but it can be used and should, for clarity.

needs a comma between the 2nd and 3rd hads.

Actually, it doesn't.

I like the (i guess) Chinese one.

In Dutch there is also a fun one.
'Neven negen neven negen neven'
'next to nine nephews nine nephews'
Not only the words itself are palindromes the sentence is a palindrome too.

i dont remember there being anything fun about english class. except the day the hot chick who sat next to me wore a really short skirt and when she dropped her pencil i so graciously bent over in front of her while she was sitting to pick up her pencil for her because i am a gentleman.

"All the faith he had had, had had no effect on the outcome of his life."

The comma is not technically correct, but the pause helps the understanding.

"All the faith he had [possessed], had [caused] no effect on the outcome of his life."

The technical explanation is complicated. What you have there is two "past perfect" verbs in a row. The first and third "had" are there to simply create the "past perfect." The second and fourth "had" are two different meanings of the verb "to have." One meaning is to possess, the other meaning to cause. If it were in the present simple tense, the phrase would read as follows:

"All the faith he has, has no effect of the outcome of his life."

Present perfect tense would be as follows.

"All the faith he has had, has had no effect on the outcome of his life."

Then we can do past simple tense:

Please can someone explain what this is trying to say.

If it said "All the faith he had, had had no effect on his life." Then I could understand it, however the fourth had and lack of comma make no sense to me.
