Inaccessible websites?

I'm doing a talk on web accessibility at LinuxConf Australia and would like to give specific examples!

So, gimme your best examples of websites with specific accessibility problems that drive you nuts. Use of tabular data where it doesn't make any sense, sites with horrible contrast or that won't let you change font sizes, restaurant websites that are entirely flash-based, etc, etc.

Also, if anybody knows of good illustrative videos of a) people listening to a screenreader and b) people dictating to their computer, point me at 'em?

I'm not sure WHY it's inaccessible. I think it may be flash, though not something my screen reader's recognizing as flash, and everything is in mouse-able dropdown menus. Tabbing will get you the first item in a menu, but not the rest. I've tweeted at them and tried to explain this several times, but nobody's ever replied, and it's extra sad because the site used to be entirely accessable till they went and had a redesign.
