I Love Otke Notive

I've reported before about cranky hobbyists who invent new ways to make life more rational - witness the invented alphabets, or the 28-hour day.

It has come to my attention that a 19th-century utopian, Stedman Whitwell, invented a more rational way to name cities, based on their latitude and longitude.

If I'm following his system correctly, I was born in Obit Ravid, Iowa and raised in Odit Rouvof. I go to law school in Omof Abeevout, Idaho. Tomorrow morning I will be flying from Ybad Akouvuf, Alaska, to Onim Adevar, Washington.

It all sounds like something from the Book of Mormon to me.
