    Its called what3words. The idea is that they have split the world into 57 million 3 meter squares. They have given each square a three word address. Check it out.

    I don't get it. Tried the map and my location. Didn't see three words. Maybe you gotta sign up?

    Springfield, OR three words?
    odorous, trashy, illegals..... ahghh this is hard! I need at least 10. The three I picked have nothing to do with each other either.
    Weyerhaeuser is the smell.
    Trashy is some of the many rental neighborhoods full of people who don't seem to work much.
    Illegals? Lot's of parents at my kid's school don't speak a lick of English so I can only assume.
