2. Haven't they heard of Google?

It's a good idea to check phrases these days.

4. Well, in all fairness...

 

"Glory hole" was a pretty common term for a space in the cloud that the sun comes through, at least in Cordova

i snickered every time someone said it, of course, but, well, that's what it's called up there, as far as i can tell

33. There's an entire recreation area in California called Glory Hole.

It was originally the site of a productive mine that the locals called the Glory Hole, but the name stuck when it was flooded by a reservoir and became a good fishing spot.

How embarrassed will the padre be when he finds out what that name means to the more jaded denizens of the Intertubes!

22. CONTEXT matters. Gold mining. Juneau. They give much needed help to many, are a good organization.

Context matters. Rather than calling those naming it naive, instead how about doing some research and figuring out what it means.

Juneau, AK, where there was gold mining and glory holes (a hole dug into a really good bunch of gold). There is a gold mining glory hole there.

They aren't naive but named it many yrs ago after what was in the area.

24. You are correct, uppity

People automatically want to assume the worst about Alaska and Alaskans. (Thanks, Sarah.) Glory hole is a common phrase in mining circles.

26. I knew a "born again" Christian couple who went to see the movie "Deliverance" thinking it was a

Billy Graham film. I wonder at what point during the hideous Ned Beatty scene did they start wondering how they story was going to end with everyone getting saved.
