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?

Yeah, CNN does that "fixed space, truncate or overlap the text as needed" thing, so with larger fonts I can't read many of the headlines.

Google+ does not allow you to change the font size for entries, and if you use your browser to do it it zooms the whole page (which already has horizontal scrolling). If you have to zoom a page it should *always* re-lay itself out to fit within the browser window, but few actually do. :-(
