Fucking Austria - It's a Place and Google Thinks it Knows.

Did a mistype earlier into laggy browser.   Google is ever so helpful. My life wasn't meaningful until Google tried to make sense of my randomness.

Google Maps tried to tell me where fucking was.   Indeed, it's a place.  Fucking, Austra.

Austria also has Fuckersberg.

The Germans, not to be outdone, have Fuckersee and at least four other FUCK related name matches in the mighty Google Maps.



Talk about being lost in fucking.   Every road is fucking the same.  

The only escape from the insanity is wolfing.  Google isn't so helpful decoding wolfing in the top few slots of search (furries and some urban dictionary -- cause you know those are what people are searching when searching for the word wolfing, woof woof and blech!).

No I was cussing at Vivaldi browser for churning and being overall lousy.  Typing something and system went churn and lockup.  So rather than old school slapping the display (it hadn't done me any wrong) I go typing profanity. When the browser snapped back to life, Google was the good Butler always listening and transported me magically to Austria.

I guess Austrian porn is a thing.  Universal thing, well use to be until everyone went lazy / asexual / weird.

Ask it where VPS is and you'll get a map showing DO, Linode, UltraVPS, Host4Geeks Managed VPS, and Enterprise VPS Solutions and a few others (and not an 'effin' thing in Buffalo)

Google Maps and you type ChicagoVPS in and it gives you 5 places, none of them are right...

Well, what where you looking for?..

Looking for Austrian porn?
Porn is everywhere in Austria! Austria.com use to host softcore porn galleries (erotic nudes)... I think it was 14-15 years ago when I had a social studies project about Austria. Was hilarious when I opened the site in the classroom.

^ The good old days with AltaVista, Lycos, and Ask Jeeves  :).

I passed through Fucking a few years back. Naturally, my GF wanted to take a picture at the town sign. There was a big hollow beside it - obviously a popular spot for pictures, and confirmed by the eye-rolling locals driving by. I thought they had to voted change it recently.

We also drove through a tiny village called Wank.

I wonder what the deal with these Austrian town names is / was.. if language appropriate (I doubt it)... or if they have such a sense of humor...

Isn't Intercourse, Pennsylvania, an Amish town?

It's just a normal town, "Fucking" has no sexual (or any other) connotation in Austrian (and German) German. It's also spoken different than Fucking in english. (Fuuking)

So the English screwed the name in translation ehh?

Any idea @William what Fuuking means in the native tongue over there?

Nah, it's just different pronunciation, name is the same in German.

It means nothing at all, like most town/city names in German.

somewhat related:

The European Union trademarks authority has permitted a German firm to register the brand name "Fucking Hell" for a new beer, much to the irritation of the Austrian village of Fucking.

In English, the term "Fucking Hell" is just an expletive used to express irritation or surprise. In German, it could refer to a light ale from Fucking in Upper Austria, because "Hell" is a term for light ale in southern Germany and Austria...
