The worst URL in history

The longest URL in history is: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.com

So this reminds me of that time I watched Oprah (yes this was a once in a lifetime occurrence) and I heaard about the African lady who named her daughter a name so long it took about 25 seconds to completely say it. She actually had a name so long that she had to tape record it and play it for her so she could eventually (10 years later) remember her own name in an attempt to be unique with a name nobody else will ever take when she could have just added a T at the end of richard and spruced it up with some other effervenscence but nooo she has given her child a life long misery in unique and indistinguishable names.

So when I heard about this URL being the longest domain name in history which was bought purposely just to have that claim to fame it made me think of that stupid Oprah story and so here's to you and your incredibly long url which I may just go purchase one with a single character added to defeat your guiness record. Guess you didn't think about that before the purchase? Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.com
