My current location is 5308 AFRAID ANUS. Might be best to exclude ANUS from the word list.



What are you afraid of?

More serioulsy. I think there are curated word lists out there without swear words.


My Street is "BASTARD BOX"

Jee, thanks.


Are you kidding? I'd love to have my address be BASTARD BOX. So apropos.


My subway station is apparently a SHITHOLE.



I'm at "ETERNAL SHITTIN" No thanks.


Mine is 8763 UNTIL DICK, word list definitely needs a review.


You could be DICK UNTIL 8763... no wait


First two clicks in the default map location:

8529 WANT FILTHY

8529 WANT EXPLOSIONS


Mine is SUPERMAN KRYPTON which I rather like. I could also go with EMERGENCY REBEL, DOUGLAS PHOTOS (I live in an area with lots of Douglas trees), CATATONIC TYRANNOSAURUS, etc.


Mine is BASTARD ASSHOLES


thanks codev, added to the TODO!


Great. It's a nice project, nice demo as well.

I realised when I was living in Japan recently how much I miss the UK postcode system. When I'm in the UK I can give anyone a short alphanumeric string and they can find me. A global coordinate system like this is really useful. I hope you can get some traction with it.


Probably don't want SCROTAL in there either


Note you can click on many of the words and cycle over alternatives.


If you look at the word list, there are many options for each set of numbers. "Anus" could equivalently be any of:

ANUS CUFFLINK GRETNA EMPT WAIFS UNAS FUMOTO GUIDOS ASUN GOOFER GANTER ACKNOWLEDGMENTS YOCHEVED OVERCOMETH WIFIE USAN EDICIONES UNDERPOWERED CALIFIORNIA DESPRES


> CALIFIORNIA
