No, not quite that crude. It's just "The Gay Bar". Off near the end of the UP, it's not quite... um... typical for the area.

True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

How about this one? A hill in New Zealand called

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu

85 letters long & roughly translates to "The brow [or summit] of the hill [or place], where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid [down], climbed [up] and swallowed mountains, [to travel the land], [who is] known as the land eater, played [on] his [nose] flute to his loved one."

Often shortened to 'Taumata'. Gee I wonder why.

I hope the abbreviated version is the part about the nose-flute serenade.
We need to ressurect these old romantic traditions.

i lived in a town in Kansas named "Agra"


some a-holes from a nearyby town painted 'vi' in front of Agra on the water tower.....it said "Kolaloka lemonade"

kind of funny


we had shirts with pictures.......a slumped over tower with agra on it....then a tower really strait and tall with the vi added....

Reminds me of a street called "HORNBY AVENUE" got altered to read "HORN Y VENUE"

And a sign for "Ferry Hill Station" became "Benny Hill Station"

Near where I used to live, in AZ., there was a run-down, low-income apartment complex called "Sandal Ridge"
The "S" fell off the sign, and I always wanted to sneak onto the property and remove the "d" , leaving the moniker "an al Ridge"
Under this, I wanted to spray-paint the subtitle,
"Not quite the a*shole of the universe, but damned close!"...

I never got around to it, tho.
