Geography for Dummies (or Americans, take your pick)

When I couldn't remember, in a recent post, the names of the territories resulting from the partition of Canada's Northwest Territory, Hamilton's own etherlad came to my rescue:

Northwest Territories got split into the Northwest Territories (the western half) and Nunavut.

There was a lot of discussion over that - if they were calling one half Nunavut, what were they going to call the other half? My favorite choices were "Alluvut" or "The Restuvut."

But they stuck with NWT. Oh, well. (:
