Sometimes we play around a bit on the Web... just to see what's out there. Inevitably, we'll try a shortcut by accessing a site directly instead of searching for it, and we'll end up with something way different than what we anticipated. www.quiz.com, for instance, doesn't take you to a trivia site.
