There's a hill in New Zealand called Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu.

I believe there is a really long word containing... 189819 letters!

a grammatically correct descriptive part of an Estonian sentence without any consonants
You can form any number of sentences in Romanian without consonants:

Oaia aia e a ei.
Ea e o oaie.
Eu iau o ie, ea ia ouă, ei iau oi.
Oau, e ea!
Iei ii?
etc.

You can use any of these: oaie/oi (sheep - sg./pl.), e (is), a (possesive article), ea (she or sometimes her), ei (them or her), o (a/an), aia (that), eu (I), iau (take - I take), ia (takes - he/she takes), oau/uau (wow), ie (traditional dress), iei (take - you take), ii (traditional dresses), ou (egg), ouă (eggs). *take=buy

This is just reminding me the weirdest Slovak words (for me) - mäkko and väčšia.

Some interesting things i saw today in Rahway...

New County Road Signs.....notice the E-W in the Arrow

image hosted on flickr


and here , Only Union County and a few others have those New Arrrow markers

image hosted on flickr


A 4 Way Intersection under the North Jersey Coast line , it was a 4 way stop like 20 other intersections but Rahway decided it was safer to switch to lights...yes the Bridge will be repainted early next year.....light blue i'm told...

UCR 684 & UCR 514

I love your approach, but it instantly reminds me of a joke about Erich Honecker, the last Tzar of DDR. Erich Honecker is driving through Dresden and there is a demonstration. His body guard is asking "What shall we do, comerade? People are protesting". So Erich Honecker draws the curtains closed and tells the driver to go on.

This is not as much a funny joke (it's not funny), but a comment about mentality. You're "closing the curtains" on reality. Or am I the one who is mistaken? Perhaps I believed too much in "Peak oil" and other stories, I welcome those who want to prove me wrong. But it's unsustainable not only energy-wise. I am yet to see a city that can cope with the number of cars required to serve uptown residents.

I'd love to live in a suburb and be able to drive everywhere. But I don't see it possible. It's a utopia.
