Some random stuff..

Minnehaha translates as laughing water. Why doesn't this surprise me? :)

"I always have lots of stuff in the works, but most of it only gets about halfway finished before I get bored and give up. That's the way I work. :)" : Guess which infamous web developer has this on his website?

    No, it doesn't. At least not according to the Wikipedia link you posted. It means "waterfall". So it's "Falls Falls", a pretty common phenomenon in multilanguage place names. I believe a classic example is "Hill Hill Hill" in UK, or maybe it was even "Hill Hill Hill Hill".
    • What about Waterloo in Belgium? It originates from Water L'eau... which means "Water Water" :)

        ummm, again... :-)

        If one believes Wikipedia (not always the best option),
        no. Apparently Dutch for "watercourse" is "waterloop" or "waterloos" (or another possibility, which you will have to look up yourself :-)
