Truth or Consequences

I googled 'Truth or Consequences', looking for a Festschrift in honour of Nuel Belnap, and instead discovered the City of Truth or Consequences. What the hell?

There's a section of the website where they tell you how the city got its name. Still makes no damn sense though.

Oh well, snakes on a plane...


I had always assumed that it was one of those "Old West" names, like Tombstone. But then I learned it was named after a radio show. Hearing how earnestly they talk about it though is really quite amazing.
