Town changes name from"Speed" to "Speedkills"

In one of the more asinine moves, the town of "Speed" in Australia has changed its name to "Speedkills". This outback town of 45 people is changing its name for the month of March in an effort to reduce road accidents. Hey, perhaps New York should think about renaming itself "CrystalMethKills" for a month and end its drug problem. Or maybe "Gunskill". Wow. It's that simple!

The town has taken its message to Facebook, saying that the name change would go ahead if it got 10,000 supporters -- a number hit within 24 hours. It currently has nearly 34,000 supporters. Too bad.
