BIG, Dead Place is a name a sharp-witted Aussie gave to the Antarctic base at McMurdo Sound, managed by uncomprehending American bureaucrats located in faraway Nebraska.
You can read the origins of the name on the Australian ABC's web-site today:
But as I read that story, I thought what a wonderfully descriptive name for Nathan Knorr's vision of the 'New World Society' - the name of JW.com's predeccessor, and the name by which I knew the organisation of the Christian Witlesses of YHWH when I first got conned into thinking that I had found not only the truth, but the solution to the starving billions of this world and all the other shit that worries humankind.
But I will spare your the re-run of my wasted life in later versions of BIG, Dead Place.
I just wanted to ask whether anyone else thinks that's a good name for YHWH's chosen few?
