Smile Before Domain Names

Hey all, random question:

If you could go back to the time before domain names were being registered, and you had the chance to register 1 and only 1 domain name, what would it be and why?

London.com

Big enough to be worth megabucks if done right, small enough to be "manageable", right extension given the 50 million overseas tourists who flock there each year.

Money.com

The commission you can make from these type of aff programmes can be great whereas with Sex.com people tend to want porn without paying so Money.com would be much easier to monetise.

True, however if you'er simply after a lottery type domain win $13 million is a good sum for who ever perviously owned it. Would I like to develop such a site? NO! It's not my type of project nor area of interest.
