1. http://delicious.com/kidehen/virtuoso_sparql_tutorial - a collection 
of SPARQL queries (3 part series from basic to advanced with extensions)
2. http://lod.openlinksw.com/b3s/ - short cut to some of the advanced 
and extension queries showcased at last year Billion Triples Challenge.

Endpoint: http://lod.openlinksw.com/sparql  (over 4.5 Billion Triples at 
your disposal and counting).
Note, whenever you get an incomplete result set by way of error (e.g. 
some of the Billion Triples queries, simply re-query as this is the 
Anytime Query Feature in action).
