The "Hell" Post Office was open in Hell Grand Cayman Caribbean! I know many of you think the US is full of Hell Post Offices but the USPS wont put signs up out front to that effect. And the bottom picture is the landscape that gave the area the name "Hell".

Just for fun, I put "hell" into Google translate for conversion from Norwegian to English and what I got was the word . .

 . . . "successfully"

Dag, I know Hell is just a name but is that the literal translation?

So when people tell others to go there, then that must mean they're suggesting to successfully open a cayman islands bank account then?  ;D

The Norwegian word for Hell is "Helvete" Hell may in different situations have lots of meanings.  If something "er p hell" it is coming closer to the end (of a project, an era ...)usually with a negative view.  To have luck could be translated int Norwegian. ha hell.
I did not feel successfully as a good translation, because the success might came of hard work, and not luck and random happenings too.

According to Wikipedia Helvete is also a record shop in Oslo, Norway, related to Early Norwegian black metal scene. Black metal scene? Maybe that is hell.

Well, whoever it was that wrote the title phrase onto my dial number card, created a lively dialog decades later.

Surely the person had no idea that the phone that bore this card could conceivably have been installed at the Kennedy Wexford estate in Atoka, VA.  Is that where HELL was ?

You thinking of Blood, Sweat & Tears "And When I Die" lyrics?

I'm not scared of dying
And I don't really care
If it's peace you find in dying
Well, then let the time be near

If it's peace you find in dying
And if dying time is here just bundle up my coffin
'Cause it's cold way down there
I hear that it's cold way down there
Yeah, crazy cold way down there

And when I die, and when I'm gone
There'll be one child born
In this world to carry on, to carry on

Now troubles are many, they're as deep as a well

I can swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell
Swear there ain't no heaven and I pray there ain't no hell

But I'll never know by living, only my dying will tell
Yes, only my dying will tell, yeah, only my dying will tell

And when I die, and when I'm gone
There'll be one child born
In this world to carry on, to carry on, yeah yeah

Give me my freedom for as long as I be
All I ask of living is to have no chains on me
All I ask of living is to have no chains on me
And all I ask of dying is to go naturally
Oh, I want to go naturally

Here I go, hey hey
Here comes the devil right behind
Look out children
Here he comes, here he comes, hey

Don't want to go by the devil
Don't want to go by demon
Don't want to go by Satan
Don't want to die uneasy
Just let me go naturally

And when I die and when I'm dead, dead and gone
There'll be one child born
In our world to carry on, to carry on, yeah yeah
