07:51 pm: Some internet thoughts
The shortest British URL:
The British Library
http://www.bl.uk/

The most pretentious British URL:
Victoria and Albert Museum
http://www.vam.ac.uk/
Isn't it a museum, not a university? So what's the .ac.uk for?
How about http://vam.london.museum/ instead?

The most infuriating website:
http://www.mtvmusic.com/
Maybe there are videos I can watch here, but a three out of three failure rate didn't impress:
Copyrights restrict us from playing this video outside the U.S.
I wonder if anyone remembers what www stands for? It should now be usww.

Edited to fix first link as per comment below.

The library one would be quite short if you hadn't mysteriously appended a livejournal URL to it.

However, it would still not be as short as http://nhs.uk

Then there's the bbcww where only those in the U.K. can view it.
