Mornin '13
Filed under: HOMETOWN

There are so many cities on Earth with ridiculous names. One town in my country is called Ba. That's it. Just Ba As I understand it, there's a place in Australia called Au, which is even more ridiculous - especially when you consider that in my country the exclamation 'Au!' is usually followed by the expression "Fuck me!"

Anyway, ask yourself, would you rather live in:

- the town of Au
- or the town of Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu

i would rather live in the second one because if you go to a Warhammer 40K convention and someone asks where you're from, you tell him: Tau motherfucker tangy hana ko woei woei o tamataea pokai foenwa kita natahĂș.



it's a tricky situational joke i know but well worth the years waiting for it.

Actualy the last one is only a short name of the place. Full name is 85 letters long Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukak​apikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu and it means "The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who travelled about, played his nose flute to his loved one". Gotta love wikipedia.
Anyway, I live in a city called Bydgoszcz which most of the foreigners like to call by it's former Prussian name Bromberg, because they can't say it correctly due to the -szcz ending.

Antwerpen - thrown hand
kortdijk - you can guess what KORT DIJK means
As
Zwevezelle (pronounced ZVE-VE-ZE-LLE')

etc etc
I can go on for a pretty long time.

And oh - i'm going with homeworld 3. the 1st installation was one of the best games I've ever played, genre wise. Homeworld 2 was unbelievably hard, but still a good game worth a good score (you guys gave it an 8.3 and i agree. and yeah, i'm a consumer here, you should care what i think.
