According to legend, in Virginia City, Nevada, the Suicide Table was somehow responsible for the death of three individuals who took possession of it. It's an old Faro bank table from the 1860s, and the curse is directly related to gambling. Each of the deceased has also lost considerable sums of money. Two of the victims are said to have killed themselves, but one of them may have been killed.
Currently, the Suicide Table has a home in the Delta Saloon.

Oamaru, New Zealand. A real sign, not a joke. The little penguin (Eudyptula minor, in the Māori language they are called Kororā.) Is the smallest penguin species and can be found in New Zealand. But only in the dark, as they usually only come ashore at night.

KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
