I was playing around with the Wii Weather Channel. If you zoom out, then hold down the button as you flick the controller just so, you can send the Earth spinning around wildly.
Anyway, if one looks around southern Australia, various prominent cities and towns are highlighted.
One caught my eye: Keith.
I’d never heard of Keith. Why was it highlighted alongside such significant settlements as Melbourne, Mildura, Bendigo, Bega (famous for its cheese, don’tcha know?) and Canberra?
Was it even real? Or had someone named Keith managed to hack into Fortress Nintendo and get a spot named after himself as a joke?
I checked. It turns out that Keith, South Australia is real.
I’m sure it’s a very nice place, but it does make me wonder why it’s so prominent on the map at that particular zoom level when it’s apparently only a town of 1200 people, while other nearby places such as Horsham (pop 14000), Warrnambool (pop 30000) and Mount Gambier (pop 23500) don’t rate.
