so as of today, I am now the owner of Hell, Michigan. I bought the whole town.
And my first act as owner, I have renamed my town to Gay Hell, MI.

Elijah Daniel purchased the town, believed to have around 70 inhabitants, and immediately declared that only Pride flags could fly above it.
Describing his new property, he said it had a 'Hell Community Library,' a bridge with locks of love and a wedding chapel 'to get gay married in Hell'.
The stunt was a response to the Trump administration which has refused to allow American embassies abroad to fly the LGBT symbol during Pride month.
Daniel, who has more than half a million YouTube followers, later added: 'I named it gay hell because those are the words to describe my personality.'
The village was previously on the market for up to $1.3 million.
