Party In Hell.....

Hell, Michigan that is, on Tuesday. I wonder what that place is/was like to get a name like that. I have never been to Michigan but there are a couple of theories...
According to the town's semiofficial Web site, there are two leading theories about how Hell got its name.

The first holds that a pair of German travelers stepped out of a stagecoach one sunny afternoon in the 1830s, and one said to the other, "So schoene hell" -- roughly translated as, "So bright and beautiful." Their comments were overheard by some locals and the name stuck.

The second holds that George Reeves was asked after Michigan gained statehood what he thought the town he helped settle should be called, and reportedly replied, "I don't care, you can name it Hell if you want to." The name became official on October 13, 1841.
Tuesday is 6/6/06, 666 is the number that represents the mark of the beast or the anti-Christ. Seems like a good day to go out and party!! My first ever post was on Satan.
