    I always thought that they should build an Outer Planets observatory in Connecticut, near Greenwich in fact, so that scientists could see Uranus from Mianus...

    I don't mean this post to be offensive to anyone, but as a teenager in the Portland Oregon area in the 60's and 70's, (and always out looking for girls), it amazed me someone in the past named a town "Beaverton." As a 16-yr-old I just couldn't understand how someone in the distant past with city-naming powers could have so much incredible foresight looking into the future to name a city reasonably accurately.

    This might not be humorous ( just odd I guess) but I heard it mentioned today and thought it might fit in here:

    Swastika, Ontario, was linked to the Mitford family (they owned mines there)the wealthy British family who were in turn linked to the Nazis (Diana Mitford married Oswald Moseley, leader of the British Facist party). Probably not an association the residents make much of these days.

  10. There's a place (not a town really) along the Appalachian Trail, reachable by car called

    Max Patch

    I just like that name. As for some of these overly scatalogical posts, doesn't anyone tire of this sort of thing? Jes Wonderin'.

    If you wanna see a lot of amusing small town names, just pull out an AAA map of Kentucky or West Virginia. Check out the Western part of WV and the Eastern, mountainous parts of KY. Dozens of them, really, sometimes one after another after another in the holler. Diablock, then Avawam, then Wooton, then Smilax, then Cutshin, then Yeaddiss. This sort of thing.
