Not Everybody Gets Domains

From "Compared To You, Most People Seem Dumb"...

Patrick got a call from his father a while ago who wanted to find something on the web. Patrick told him the URL and his father didn’t seem to understand what he was talking about. So Patrick said “You know, the address of the website”. His father still didn’t seem to get it so Patrick said “the line of characters you enter in the location bar in your browser” after which his father replied “I don’t know about all that. I simply click the blue icon for Internet and then Google shows up and I type what I want in Google and then I get it”. Apparently you can book tickets, check email and do all sorts of stuff online without knowing that each website has a distinct address called a URL.

Happy Domain Hunting!
