What does com as in .com often said as dot com stand for regarding URLs and domain names?

".com" is the most common and most recognized domain suffix. It stands for "commercial" and is used by mostly commercial websites. However, anyone who wants to register a domain name can register a name ending in .com, whether their site is going to be used for commercial purposes or not.

dot-com represents a company that operates its business on the Internet using a URL that ends in `.com' (com means commercial).

This was initially used when the internet was opened to commercial users, where it was previously only used (and paid for) by government (.gov), military (.mil), or educational (.edu) users. Non-commercial groups were also authorized under the .org top-level domain.

According to Family Feud name something a cowboy would hate to have happen during a gunfight?

The answers from the show were:

1. Gets Shot

2. Runs Out Of Bullets

3. Misses

4. Gun Jams

5. Drops His Gun

Some that might have been tried are:

  • Have his pants fall down
  • Have one of his buddies turn on him
  • Shooting himself by accident
  • Shoot the wrong man, his girlfriend, his dog, or his horse
  • Getting the hiccups
  • Have allergies / sneeze
  • Have a bullet misfire (since they used revolvers and not pistols)
  • Be distracted by a charging bovine (bull, cow or steer) or by a herd of stampeding horses, wild or runaway station-wagon horses
  • Have to use the bathroom
  • Have a heart attack or stroke or seizure (can be an epileptic seizure
  • Discover his opponent is a sheriff
  • Discover his opponent is Chuck Norris
  • Specific to cowboys, I'd guess they'd hate to be wrestling around and then someone plays the theme song to "Brokeback Mountain" on the jukebox.
  • Find out too late that he forgot to bring his gun.
  • He would hate if his gun jammed, if he shot his friend, or if he got shot first. Back then the equivalent to jam is a bullet misfire since there were revolvers and not pistols, but definitely having the other one draw faster and not miss is the most a cowboy could hate.
  • Be charged at by a bull.
  • Not have his gun.
  • Die

WHAT A LOSER. the pictures are hilarious.
