Talking "What was I Thinking?" Award - Domain Names

All of these are legitimate companies dealing in regular products and services, but they didn't think their domain names through before applying! Some of them are prime candidates for the "What was I thinking?" Award!

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). Then, of course, there's these brainless art designers, and their whacky web site: www.speedofart.com

9). Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe????? Try their brochure web site at: www.gotahoe.com

I've got to share these.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

That's because the URL is actually "http://www.experts-exchange.com", the one in the joke above just points to a squatter portal.

Only since last year though. I'm quite sure they used to use both URLs.
