Those three little words that mean so much…

Sorceror. Runs. Fast.

Or maybe fire.danger.dragon.  Or even computer.broken.help?

The amazing site What3Words.com assigns a three word phrase to every 3mx3m square on the face of the earth.  Designed partly to help people who have no official address and no way of getting one, such as those who live in shanty towns or very remote areas, it also has the wonderful side effect of generating catchy and memorable phrases which one day might replace memorising GPS co-ordinates.

Browsing around Dublin for example, I found union.trades.metals in Stephen’s Green and exam.sweat.plank near Trinity College.

Further afield, by guessing against the available words, famous.racing.driver is a little South of Indianapolis, and nice.warm.breakfast is in a part of Russia that looks distinctly chilly.

Here are some more great possible addresses:

  • unsafe.fire.managements
  • invisible.broad.house
  • wonderfully.green.duck

So tell me, who wouldn’t love to live at funny.banana.vibrates?
