Sometimes when my Daughter and I text, she will refer to me as “Bruh”. So that explains the title. :) For the older generation, it’s basically like calling someone Buddy or friend.

Back to the topic. I have lost track of how many times I see the word “United” on my daily outings. It does seem like that I see it daily. But maybe that’s just me. Sometimes on a truck, sometimes on a rental, and even on a Church (United Church of Canada).

What would you do with united.ca if you owned it? Right now it’s not resolving. I also have no idea who the guy is that owns it but I feel like it should be put to better use.

Has anyone else noticed the word United on their travels recently? What would you value a word such as this with so many uses?
 
United.com own United.ca

I guess I should have scrolled a little further when I did the Whois. :)

Not that united.com needs the domain but I’m surprised they haven’t put it to use or forwarded it to united.com.

I guess that's why we see constant job postings for "Domain Admin" at big firms like this. :D
 
Since bruh is related to and overlaps with the slang bro, it's worth shedding some light on the development of the latter. Bro specifically spreads as a way for Black men to address one another in the early 1900s. Like bruh, it goes mainstream as an informal term for a “male friend or fellow” in the 1960s.

Now if United airlines actually owns United.ca, aren't they going against CIRA rules by having CSC hold it for them?
 
Bruh is a very hawaiian term/slang.. Hey Bruh and shake the Hang Loose
 
@FM the registrant for united.ca is United, not CSC, CSC is the RAR.
Goes to show how good I am at reading the whois, sorry. Of course you are correct. I probably have been jaded by other practices from corporate registrars in the past ;-)
