    Imagine how cheap real estate must be in a town called Hell. And imagine how cool it must be to get a letter with a return adress of Hell. I'm definately moving there when I'm older.

    I passed close to Hell once on my way to Holland, Michigan. I had to ask about it. It was named by German settlers. In German "hell" is the adjective "light", (as opposed to dark). "Hell blau" for example, would mean "light blue".

    In Nevada, a person can see Sparks from Hell.

    Everyone who grows up in Michigan hears about Hell sooner or later. I've been to hell(and back). I actually went fishing in hell, but I didn't catch anything. It's a quiet sleepy little backwoods community Who'd have thought hell could be so nice? As far as Hell freezing over-It's michigan, so Hell freezing over is a non-event. The only downside is that it's in the middle of nowhere, and if you get stranded there, I have no doubt it would seem to hold to it's namesake.
