In 1994, I was working at Sandia Labs in Albuquerque. They gave me an E-mail address which ended with @www.sandia.gov
I asked my boss what the “www” stood for, and he said that it meant “world wide web”
I responded with something like “That sounds really stupid. Do I have to have that in my E-mail address?”
The winter of 1994-1995 was the year without a winter. We didn’t have a single cold day in Albuquerque that winter. I was 100% certain it was due to global warming.
