Lulu’s Lunacy: Having Hookers Play Xbox

Hi everyone! It has definitely been awhile since I’ve last posted. Sorry about that. I had finals that kicked my ass so hard that I couldn’t shit correctly for days. Ew gross…I know, think about how I felt. Anyway for today, I was actually going to write a rant about my sufferings during finals and the injustice that the world has just served me, but I won’t. I found something that made me feel a lot better about myself. So the story goes like this. My roommate came home at 4pm last night (completely not drunk…) to tell me about this boy. Here’s the entire article quoted. It’s simply too good to just summarize for you.

A 13 year old boy from Texas is convicted of fraud after using his Father’s credit cards to hire escorts.

A 13 year old from Texas who stole his Dad’s credit card and ordered two hookers from an escort agency, has today been convicted of fraud and given a three year community order. Click to continue reading…

The Gold Standard

I was talking to my friend the other day about how much I love the gold standard and how I wish we still had a similar precious-material-based monetary system in the U.S.

She looked at me and said, “I thought we were on the gold standard.”

Well, we are not. The following short video explains the basics of the gold standard and compares it to the modern system ruled by the federal reserve.

Let us know: Are you pro or con the gold standard? Explain why.

Top 10 Most Expensive Domain Names EVER!

Many news agencies all over the world reported the story of a man named as Chris Clark, who sold the domain name of pizza.com, which he had purchased in 1994 for only $20, for $2.6 million.

It is amazing when people are ready to pay a large amount of money for something that does not actually exist. Nevertheless, it is well-known that such domain names, which can stand for a whole industry, can be sold for millions of dollars.

Below, you can find the list of most expensive domain names according to Yahoo! Tech. The list naturally only includes the domain names that have been resold. It does not include such names as yahoo.com or google.com, which still belong to their original owners. As a rule, the market value of such domains may considerably exceed the value indicated below.

1. Sex.com, $12.5 million

2. Porn.com, $9.5 million

3. Diamond.com, $7.5 million

4. Business.com, $7.5 million

5. Casino.com, $5.5 million

6. Asseenontv.com, $5 million

7. Korea.com, $5 million

8. Wine.com, $3.3 million

9. Creditcheck.com, $3 million

10. Vodka.com, $3 million

Everything seems to be clear with sex.com and diamond.com. However, Asseenontv.com may cause bewilderment. Common logic says that the domain names consisting of only one word are supposed to be most valuable. However, there can be exceptions.
