There’s a town named Y in France
@Siphonay déçue, ça se prononce i
@Siphonay Even better: It is a sister city with Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
@andrej I think this has been removed from the French wikipedia page because there’s no source for it
this one, however, is a particularly unusual/difficult case - both the movie title and the concept of a twin town are the exact same search term!
I don't think there is any tech solution that can avoid the confusion here, although delving deeper into twin towns (as a a local govt concept) hints that the UK is twinning less often and even ending existing agreements as a consequence of public sector austerity and Eurosceptism...
TBH I haven't even noticed as many twin town/village signs in my own region (and I pay attention to these when driving as the speed limit change sign is usually on the the same post) - often its not that the twinning /isn't/ happening but there isn't the money to maintain signs or pay for the extra to add the two coats of arms to both - there is a twin town sign at Felixstowe, but its a 60mph/96 km/h road so I always forget the names..
@Siphonay Ah, too good to be true. Maybe I can research it a bit more later.
ça se prononce "i" mais les habitants sont les Ypsiloniens, marrant.
@Siphonay ... but why
@Siphonay what the hell norway
@Siphonay Et les habitants sont des Ypsiloniens. Et je trouve ça plutôt classe.
@Siphonay I love these signs in France
@Siphonay interesting, I wonder if it's related to the legendary city of Ys
@Siphonay even better, it's a COMMUNE.
(yes this means something different en Francais)
@Siphonay they're just really proud of their town, and they all wave their arms in the air like they just don't care
@Siphonay On y va ? 😅
@Siphonay y tho
HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAA *GET IT???????*
@Siphonay Is there a town called X?
Also how uncreative Game Freak naming the games with a Pokemon region after a town. xD
