10. I Do Now I Dont
Joshua Opperman was heart broken when his fiancee and him separated shortly after he proposed.
With nothing to do with the engagement ring, he went to a jeweler who said he will get about 32% of what he paid for.
Dude, losing the girl was hard. Losing the money is just unacceptable so he set up a site where people with the same fate can go and sell their ring.
He may have lost a girl… but he gained millions. I’ll take the trade.
Owner:Our Lady of Spring Bank Cistercian Abbey
If you ever find yourself running out of ink, turn to God.
Well, not quite. Turn God’s soldiers – the monks who refill empty cartridges. Although the monks don’t earn a dime out of the millions worth of transaction they do, be assured that your money goes to the church.
8. Trade Paper Clip To A House
According to Reader’s Digest, it all started when Kyle MacDonald took a photo of a little red paper clip that was sitting on the desk and put this notice in the barter section of the local craigslist, the classified-ads website: “I want to trade this paper clip with you for something bigger or better, maybe a pen, a spoon, or perhaps a boot. If you promise to make the trade, I will come and visit you.”
Someone actually agreed to trade the clip to a pen… the pen to a knob… the knob to a camping stove… the stove to a neon bar sign… and so on. He put up a site – oneredpaperclip.com to attract more people and he did.
The appeal of the whole thing is the silliness of it. So silly, in fact, that you just can’t help but be a part of it. You can’t argue with a formula… that’s his final trade up there – a house.
Owner:I don’t Know
The most expensive URL is insure.com. It was sold for $16million. That only goes to show you that it is a freakin’ serious business.
Pickydomains knows this and set up a business where people who are thinking of a url for their business can go to ask other people for a suggestions. If what you submit gets picked, you get paid.
Owner:I don’t know
They sell goggles for dogs. The owners are millionaires now.
Don’t ask me.
