Fun Time Open Thread: I Don’t Think We’re in Kansas Anymore

A lot of us are traveling this week. I, for one, am in West Virginia, which is a little surreal. It is fairly different from my super-convenient suburban lifestyle. It got me thinking about other strange and unusual places. Below is a list of fictional places. Can you identify what book, movie or television show they come from?

  1. Bedrock
  2. Tortall
  3. Camden County
  4. Sunnydale, California
  5. Castle Rock, Maine
  6. Lanford, Illinois
  7. Bedford Falls
  8. Persephone
  9. Arlen, Texas
  10. Danville and the entire tri-state area
  11. Greater Greensward
  12. Noland
  13. Lancre
  14. New New York

Lancre: the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett, home of witches, fools, trolls, dwarves, scumble, and Herne the Hunted.

Also, totally off topic, but I need to share this picture and there are no people who are sexually attracted to men in my office right now (SFW) and I’m pretty sure there are some here.

I’ll be in my bunk.

Hey all, this is a little off topic, but a trans* friend of mine is raising money for his top surgery right now and so far hasn’t been able to raise anything. His insurance will cover part, but there are still a lot of out of pocket expenses he currently can’t afford. Even if you can’t donate, would you mind putting the link on your tumblr/personal blog? He’s a really awesome person and needs to get the surgery soon before he graduates and loses access to his college insurance.

Here’s the link:

1. The Flintstones

3. My Name is Earl

4. Buffy

8. Firefly

10. Phineas and Ferb

14. Doctor Who/Futurama. I only know that because this was once a question on Jeopardy, the constant (and I) both answered Doctor Who, and they said the answer was Futurama. But then she got points back after the commercial because there’s also a New New York in Doctor Who. And the nerds rejoiced.
