The Daily recap of Shane’s Auction Picks, the 3rd of January
I Bought my plane ticket to Vegas last night. I used Kayak for the first time and it wasn’t too bad. I ended up buying flight “hacks” that connect 2 one way tickets together for the best price. I did pay extra for a better seat, the only seats available at the advertised rate were in the cargo area, another offer would have given me $30 off but I had to agree to serve drinks and polish shoes in first class for the entirety of the flight.
The thing that gets me with the airlines now is all the extra charges. When they list all the flights and prices you never know what the whole price is going to be until you get to the end. Some airlines let you check one bag for free, others charge $30 or more. If I don’t want to sit in a middle seat between 2 sumo wrestlers I have to pay more, food’s extra, drinks are extra. I like the old days when you bought the ticket and everything was included, a time when they served you a meal and the movie was free.
Seriously, how much extra does it cost to play a movie for everyone without charging for the headphones? The crappy meal that you got was something to look forward to, it helped set flight benchmarks. You could gauge how far into the flight you were by which meal or drink break you were on. I miss the simple days of flying, no 80 year old women getting cavity searched for contraband, food that’s included and bags that you check for free, because it’s normal to take shit with you when flying on an airplane.
Shane’s customer problem is something that I’ve had an idea on for awhile. I’ll pitch it and if anyone wants to build it out we can partner up. (I won’t pretend that I’m actually gonna do it myself) I have a friend that works in a restaurant that’s owned by a multinational company and the companies head quarters happen to be in the same building as the fine dining establishment. Like many restaurants the employees are powerless to do anything about customers that blatantly take advantage of the outdated and down right stupid saying “the customer is always right”. What a load of crap. Why would you want the worst people coming into your establishment time and time again? Theses people will repeatedly go from establishment to establishment eating the meal, complaining, and getting it comped. They complain about BS things, don’t tip, and make the lives of the employees and middle management difficult. The business suffers, these people take up seats and are cost negative overall. Fine dining establishment executives set policies that enable these people to do this.
It seems that these people are known to and can be identified by staff as they go around stealing food and services. My idea is to label bad customers as Shit Birds, and through ShitBirds.com, which I own, publicly identify them and mock them. Maybe we Geo the site, so for example you’d have central Pa Shit birds. The restaurants in that region would identify these bad customers and cross reference them with other establishments. After some sort of validation process they would have their picture posted and their MO for being a horrible customer. We could expand to any industry and force people to not be shit birds.
ThePoser.com 16 years old. One bidder. Most people are
? This was a more popular saying in the 80’s wasn’t it? I think Shane might have been feeling nostalgic. There’s a few more 80’s references.
TDYN.com 14 year old LLLL.com. Nice acronym letters
SCRP.com I like the name above a little better. Only because I like the N at the end more than the P
2,130 USD looks like Scrap, lots of money in scrap metal.
JHD.net Chinese premium letters and thus the price. Actually its more of a reflection of the growing LLL.com prices
? Dont know what happened with this one.
SpinClass.com The heart of every gym. Right behind Rumpa Humpa Boogie Ballet
Couldn’t find the price of the latest sale, but it sold in 2014 for $3500
22808.com I use to love my 808 machine. That and a 4 track and I could lay down the beats back in the 80s
? Not having much luck today. We need an NNNNNsales.com to track these.
CSWX.com All Chinese …….and that’s plenty
2181 USD makes me think of freight trains
315888.com Investment quality 6N.com are the words I would use if I used cheesy marketing terms to describe domains
8,101 USD That is indeed some high end investment grade numerology
138666.com Another fine 6N.com Triple 6s =Devil in the Us but Cash Money in China
2,501 USD Nice work buyer you just sold your soul for 2500 bucks.
A nice set of LLLL.com non premiums today
FXNI, 365 USD
FXIW, 335 USD
FXEH, 311 USD
OHSQ 306 USD
BleedYellow.com Has quite a few backlinks from an old site. Good name for a fan with yellow team colors
155 USD Find rival teams that both have yellow and start a bidding war with this name
D2D.cc Anything 3 characters is worth owning in a dot cc in my opinion
406 USD They keep moving up. Is .cc the new .com? 🙂
FarWest.net Nice Geo (area of country) but its a dot net. Not a problem at this price
? I feel like a poser not having any of these prices
Fitness.coach As far as a real use New G, I like coach as much as any of them
155 USD If I were to like New G’s as a whole, any good span the dot names would be my favorite. So I wouldn’t like any particular extension, just certain names that make sense. The problem with this is that some extension will have very limited domains that work, unless all 3 and 4 digit numerics are registered.
6RZ.com I see NLL and LNN.coms doing very well this year
GYDN.com Notice we’re not seeing the number of Chinese Premiums we saw a few weeks ago. Could be the holidays but if it continues a few more weeks it will mean another leg up.
Ends Tomorrow Morning, Around $2k now
