Re: July 2020 Screenshots

I just realized "cromulent" is nearly a twenty five year old Simpsons reference...

Time is weird. Fight Club is a 21 year old movie.

I'm from Massachusetts, and I can confirm that Braintree is a town. Other weird township names in Mass include Athol (Asshole?) and Dracut (Dracula?) And of course, Worcester. In Mass, we pronouce it "Woos-tah". Pahty wicked hahd in Woos-tah!

I'm from the UK, and I can confirm that Braintree is a town in Essex, east of London.

And we also pronounce "Worcester" as "Woos-ter" (and Leicester = "Less-ter"; Gloucester = "Gloss-ter"; etc). But why "Cholmondeley" is pronounced "Chumly" is beyond me!

"Athol" is a Gaelic name ("New Ireland"), and the Duke of Atholl is apparently the only citizen of the United Kingdom entitled to maintain his own private army.

A lot of towns in the state of Massachusetts are indeed named after towns over in the jolly old motherland England smile

You should someday make the trip and @hhh will give you the grand tour!

A lot of Algonquian (native American) names as well, such as Massachusetts.

I haven't visited since 1993. I'll give you a great bicycle tour of downtown Charleston, SC, though.

Lol, I was born in Massachusetts and I still spell-check it every time. The states of New England... Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and then the states I grew up in... Connecticut and Massachusetts. As if a dysfunctional family wasn't enough. Connecticut??? Part of the whole Iroquois tribe, I think...

I don't know much about it, but my mom is from Montreal and her grandmother or something was Iroquois, so I am part American Indian. I never checked if I'm eligible for some of that sweet casino revenue.

I feel for you guys with complicated place names but at least you don't have 'Taumata whakatangi hangakoauau o tamatea turi pukakapiki maunga horo nuku pokai whenua kitanatahu' as your home town.

Or "Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch" in Wales.

A rough translation is: "The place where the laptop keyboard has had beer spilt on it".
