More useless news bits! Hooray!

Japan changes name of Iwo Jima
Japan has now officialy not really changed the name of Iwo Jima. Apparently the desolate and mainly uninhabited island was always known as Iwo To, but someone in the Japanese war department jacked up the pronunciation back in WWII (easy to do as the characters can be read either way).
Now they are ordering that the correct pronunciation be written on maps.
The rest of the world's response: "who cares?"
