There’s a place called Vagina in Russia, and The Cock of Arran in Scotland is said to be of particular interest to geologists. Both places are highlighted on an interactive world map that’s perfect for fourteen-year-olds everywhere.
Created by geotechnologist Gary Gale, the map lists rudely named locations across the globe, like Canada’s Spread Eagle and Anus in the Philippines. Weirdly, an unusually high percentage of places, like Chinaman’s Knob, Australia seem overly preoccupied with male genitalia. Users can only scroll around or adjust the zoom distance, but that shouldn’t stop Gale’s snigger-inducing creation from becoming a fun afternoon diversion.
My favourite shall always be Cockermouth.

"You know nothing, Jon Snow." Ygritte twisted like an eel and wrenched away from him. I know one thing. I know that you are wildling to the bone. It was easy to forget that sometimes, when they were laughing together, or kissing. But then one of them would say something, or do something, and he would suddenly be reminded of the wall between their worlds. (Happy birthday to my lovely Emma.)
her courage will change the world.

Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall."
