"aluminium" always gives me a chuckle. You Brits are funny.
I listen to the BBC World News daily and watch all sorts of geeky TV shows and I swear, people in the UK just make up unusual pronunciations of standards words just to make you go, "wait, wha...?" It'd make more sense if they were at least consistent, but no! Listen to 5 different UK reporters and they'll mess with the emphasis/pronunciation in 10 different ways.
