Wauwatosa WI has a Met to Wee Ln. Whatever that means.

Auburn, Washington has lettered streets (A, B, C, etc.) but had to change P to Pike because the single letter was too embarrassing.

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.

Bloomington Ind has a street named for Bill Mallory, probably the last winning Hoosier football coach.

Baltimore has a Gay St.  So does Phoenixville, PA.  (Yes, I'm 12.)

I think the rest of the letters of "LGBTQIA" are feeling left out, here.

Lots of cities have a "Gay Street", including my city of birth, Fort Wayne, IN.

I can't find any posts for it, so I assume "Coffee Pot Boulevard" in St. Petersburg, FL has not been posted

 :hmmm:On the "Free" section of the Northwest Parkway near Louisville, CO, there is an abandoned/closed industrial subdivision where 2 of the street names are:

Tape Drive, and
Disc Drive.

Guess the roads were closed/abandoned because they are outdated?   :hmmm: :hmmm: :hmmm:

Honestly, screw the "cloud", and screw millennials who are perfectly content listening to someone else's music collection and watching someone else's movie collection.  I still like having a physical copy of my music, thank you very much, and this will be the case even when I'm 100 years old and streaming is considered "oh my gosh that's what great-grandpa did".

IOmega?  They made tape drives, (hard) disk drives, and the ZIP and JAZ drives.  Bought out by Lenovo, apparently.

You're being needlessly stubborn. The cloud has done plenty of good things. One of those things is not destroying the physical media industry.

As it relates to what? Music? Photos? The internet? It has its hands in a lot of things people use every day.

I personally use the cloud to access my entire music library (only some of which is on my phone) any time I have an internet connection (virtually all the time), access school documents on any computer (via OneDrive), keep my phone, laptop, and tablet synced together (Google cloud services), upload and share photos immediately, etc.

I'm willing to bet you use the cloud far more than you think you do: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing

^ I know I'm old  :rolleyes:, but my entire music collection is physical.  All my photos are either physical or stored on my computer directly; Mr Onlinesnoop doesn't need to see my personal pictures.  And what funky stuff are millennials up to where they can have access to the Internet 'virtually all the time'?
