The luchtime quiz today at mental_floss is based on a quirk in Sandy’s websurfing experience.
We’ve all spent time goofing off on the Web… Googling our own names, clicking on weird links, thwacking penguins. Web marketers know this, so companies often grab “major league” one-word URLs (like, say, www.love.com, which goes to AOL’s personals site). But sometimes, sites don’t take you where you think they might. It used to drive me crazy that, until the last few years, keying in MLB.com didn’t take you to the official pro baseball site, but to a law firm known as Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. (That situation has since been rectified.)
This quiz names 15 big URLs, and you’ll try to determine where those addresses go.
I only scored 10 out of 15. Maybe you can do better. http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/13383
