A new hobby is stalking the internet – finding out the three-word code for different slots of the earth’s surface.
A company called What3Words.com has devised the scheme which allocates a string of random words for each 3m x 3m square. It’s primarily been designed for places in the world where normal addresses don’t work, but the sport of finding apt or amusing strings is very diverting.
For example, various spots on Wanstead High Street are the weird “trap.artist.overnight” outside Judith’s, and include these weird collections:
The entrance to Wanstead Tube is scare.churn.stop
A modest prize for the most apt three-word address will be forthcoming.
