Top 10 unintentionally worst company URLs

Attn: Entrepeneurs. Everyone knows that if you are going to operate a business in todays world you need a domain name. It is advisable to look at the domain name selected as others see it and not just as you think it looks. Failure to do this may result in situations such as the following(legitimate) companies who deal in everyday humdrum products and services but clearly didnt give their domain names enough consideration:
  1. A site called "Who Represents" where you can find the name of the agent that represents a celebrity. Their domain name is www.whorepresents.com
  2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at www.expertsexchange.com
  3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at www.penisland.net
  4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at www.therapistfinder.com
  5. Then of course, there's the Italian Power Generator company: www.powergenitalia.com
  6. And now, we have the Mole Station Native Nursery, based in New South Wales: www.molestationnursery.com
  7. If you're looking for computer software, there's always www.ipanywhere.com
  8. Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist Church. Their website is www.cummingfirst.com
  9. Then, of course, there's these brainless art designers, and their whacky website: www.speedofart.com
  10. Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website at www.gotahoe.com

The Flash mind reader

Okay, now this one is just freaking me out...

The above link does not work anymore.

Okay, I figured out how it works. By picking a two digit number then subtracting the sum of the two digits you are going to end up with a limited set of numbers each time. For example: 20 through 29 will always be 18, 50-59 will always be 45, etc. The ones digit always negates itself leaving the tens digit to be subtracted; i.e. 10-1=9, 20-2=18, etc... Multiples of nine. Each time you click the crystal ball the symbols change but the ones for multiples of nine will always be the same. All the program has to do is pick the symbol used on multiples of nine.
