    Alright, this is not political and is only about the United States and proves our stupidity when it comes to choice. I recently got a "Book of Lists" and was reading it for 2 hours every night. When I finished, I was filled with weird stuff that the United States has... Here's a taste:

    Weird U.S. City Names:

    Chicken, Alaska
    Show Low, Arizona
    Hercules, California
    Prunedale, California
    Gunbarrel, Colorado
    Chicken Head, Florida
    Frostproof, Florida
    Fruitville, Florida
    Two Egg, Florida
    Big Foot, Illinois
    Goofy Ridge, Illinois
    Roachtown, Illinois
    Bald Head, Maine
    Grosse Pointe, Michigan
    Inkster, Michigan
    Yazoo City, Mississippi
    Frankenstein, Missouri
    Lizard Lick, North Carolina
    Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina
    Pepper Pike, Ohio
    Worstville, Ohio
    Frogtown, Pennsylvania
    Mars, Pennsylvania
    Dentsville, South Carolina
    Guys, I think Texas has some of the funniest names yet:
    Ding Dong, Texas
    Lollipop, Texas
    Sugar Land, Texas

    Now guys... I live in Ding Dong Texas... So I approve of this message.
    I posted this because I though we all could use a little thing to cheer us up. I thought that almost nothing on this site could cheer anyone up... So I posted this to do the work. If you like these, I'll post up some more. I got these all right out of "The Book of Lists" Copyright 2003 by Shorline Publishing Group and have to give them credit for their works because this is some really funny stuff... Hope you guys liked it.

    You can pronounce Japanese city names. You just need to know how

    And yeah. You want a long unpronouncable name? Look for that really long one in Europe. I forgot it, but its huge

    they probably did it so that people would remeber it
    so instead of a city no one knows/cares about they like "yo i live in the longest named city in the world i pwn u!"
    ...
    ...
    ...
    yup i could see that happening

    if your anything but Japanese, no. Japan is very, how should i say, 'inward looking'. they like they're own people, but no one else really. they'll let you in, but you won't be treated well.

    .....*breathe*......I warned you.....*breathe*......*breathe*. :roll:

    Guess that means China or somewhere in Europe (Canada would be better now.)

    And by the way, I'm nothing of Japanese. Half-Chinease and Half-Okinawa (an island off from Japan.) But all Canadian. XD

    If you think you know Japanese, then get over here to Hawaii. Everyday you could walk in those city streets and find a wedding for a Japanese couple (they like to do both weddings and honeymoons here.) And the Japanese... are quite weird like you said. Of course, I don't think they're too much on the unfriendly side, they're just... weird. *gasp*

    Polish names are the best. Easy and some are funny. At least the place I live translates as Trumpets Great. The border villages are (translated) Ducks, Pidgeon Great. :)))
