Sometimes traveling can seem like hell, thanks to traffic jams, long lines and lost luggage. But for visitors to one Michigan town, vacation can seem like Hell -- literally.

It's not super-hot and there really isn't a sulfuric smell.

I'd like to know how Hot Coffe, MS got it's name. It's roughly between Laurel and Collins, MS.

There's a place out in the Oklahoma panhandle named Slapout. The story is that when the highway through there was being constructed, the workers would come to the little store for lunch and, if the owner didn't have bologna or whatever they were looking for, he'd say, "Sorry, but I'm slapout of" whatever.

Out on the high plains of Texas, you'll find that Earth is very nearly in Plainview.
