On the day CelebriGum was born...
I registered celebrigum.com on August 5th. According to domain-daily.com, it was one of 82,387 domains registered that day. The list of August 5th registrations goes on for 165 single-spaced pages.
Holy crap, internet!
That wasn't even a particularly big day. Some days upwards of 100,000 new domain names are registered.
CelebriGum shares its birthday with an astounding array of websites. Here are just a few that are near celebrigum.com on page 38 of the list:
Farther down the page I noticed many other gems, such as:
centralohioearnoseandthroat.com (also .net, .org, .info, and .us)
and the page 38 champ for length:
chairsrentalseventspeoriatentsweddingflowersvenuecooksamerican.com (and .net)
And there are 164 other pages I didn't even look at, just from that one day!
I could happily devote an entire blog to the oddities found in domain-daily.com's lists, but for now, I'm going to stay focused on celebrities and gum. Look for a new picture tomorrow.
