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.
