There are many funny streets near Las Vegas' Farm Road/US95.

I don't think I have ever hated Vegas as much as I do right now.  And I have hated it for a long, long time.

Do you mean because of these streets?

Those street names are absolutely tarded to be honest.  Who would want to live on, say, "Tasty Court"?  It would just look and sound ridiculous!

What if they had a Tasty Court neighborhood bake sale?   It would be great until those folks from Conquest Court came and took all of it from themselves.

The other day, I passed by a street blade which said Lab Ct.

How many of you just thought of Lab COAT as being the correct name of the street?

Call me crazy but I've always found Illinois street in Newberg, OR to be funny considering we are 1704 miles from Illinois as the crow flies to ORD.

Okay, you're crazy.

It is very common for at least one or two cities in most states to have a grouping of roads named after states. In Tacoma, there's a large grouping of streets of I-5/exit 132, including Montana Ave, Oregon Ave, Arizona Ave, California Ave, and Idaho St.

If Illinois is one of several streets named for states it's not weird, but if it's the only street in town named for a state that's a bit odd.

Well, there is an Illinois river in Oregon, which I find funner, as I live near the Illinois river in Illinois.

In Newberg, there is only Illinois street however Sherwood, 7 miles north has Washington and oregon streets so make your judgments off that

And there's an Oregon, IL - but unfortunately, it's on the Rock River, not the Illinois.

When people talk about going to Oregon, it still catches me off guard, thinking they mean the state.

There's a great charity bicycle ride up there called the Tour of Scenic Ogle County.  That's one of the most beautiful areas in Illinois, maybe even the midwest.

y u do dis



The moderator of Pacific Southwest has told bing101 to stop using size tags in his posts on that board. I don't see why he keeps using them. But at least he isn't using size=2px tags as he's done on Pacific Southwest, which make the links almost completely invisible.

Yeah, he's been told off several times for doing this. The issue, as far as I can tell, is that he rarely follows up on anything he posts. Most users here will converse with users who respond to their posts (as is the way with forums). 90% of bing101's posts are just these "update" posts, and he almost never follows up any responses to those posts. In fact, I bet he never actually saw my "y u do dis" image of his size tags.

bing101, if you are out there: please respond to this post with "I am out there".

There's a Paul "Bear" Bryant Road in Briarfield, AL. To me, the reason why it's amusing is that only here in Alabama would you have a road named after a former Alabama football coach.

IN Green Bay, if you win a Super Bowl, they will remane a strre for you.  There is Lombardi Ave, Holmgren Way and Mike McCarthey Way.
