龜吼村屬中萬里加投,地名原來叫做「龜孔(空)」(ku-khang),因為這裡以前有一個石洞(現已填滿成高地),故稱之。在日本時代初期,官方文書尚寫成「龜空」,後來,有人為了使「龜孔」的「孔」一字更像台語,放在字旁另加一「口」部,結果竟變成外地人會誤把「龜吼」唸成國語的「kue-hou」,台語的「ku-hau」,以及牽強附會成本地以前如龜之吼。據文獻云:「龜吼村:以昔日龜吼莊得名。乾隆時,閩人林姓所闢。地有山腳向海,與龜嶼相接,其前形成大澳,故名。」

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
