    I've just found this on TFN:

    http://www.theforce.net/humor/story/Polands_ObiWan_Kenobi_Street_92919.asp

    Poland has Obi-Wan Kenobi Street
    There is an Obi-Wan Kenobi Street in Grabowiec, a settlement in western Poland, near Torun (the town of Copernicus). The idea came from Leszek Budkiewicz -- street's tenant, local council's member and after all -- a Star Wars fan. He came upon his crazy idea and made the council go after it (I wonder if he was using the Force ;-). Some of the council's members even became Star Wars fans themselves! I wonder if they're going to call themselves The Jedi Council.

    Raja, Fizyk; is this true?

    We were going to have Gandalf the Grey Street in Poznan, but I guess It haven't been built eventually, so it ended up as a project only.



    Raja lost her brain in tramway today.

    I still haven't heard about R2 detour. I'm probably going to London next year, so I'll check it out. :)

    Um, I should mention, that was a joke. There's no such thing. Sorry. :(
    The joke is from the R2-D2: Beneath The Dome mockumentary video.

    No, you shouldn't have said! They'd never have guessed otherwise :(

    That's just so cool... I'm now waiting for the priests to look into it and blow a fuss about 'pagan' stuff :p
