    I saw this internet link what3words.com

    In summary, the whole world is broken up into 3x3 m squares and giving an easy 3 word location name.
    If the world, normal folk and businesses can take it up it will revolutionise the world...

    Interesting but don't know if it will take off with things like ohh I live at blunt.oil.heads (near my office).

    However it is funny to see places like 'worth.every.dollar', which im not sure it was worth every dollar haha.

    Another one is Stone.Throw.Away, now I know where the agents are talking about!

    Well if you dont like your name, hopefully your place is larger than 3x3m so you just pick another one still on your land to use! :)

    For those on a diet: Pies.biscuits.cakes yields a different result to: cakes.pies.biscuits

    I found a good practical use for it. Trying to describe the airport pickup locations at Sydney airport for taking a shuttle bus for an airbnb guest. :)

    Interesting idea . . . but I'm in apartment so:
    • Do I use my apartment location, or the front door of the block.
    • And the three words don't include "2nd Floor".

    Just choose the nicest sounding 3 word option that fits!
