Oof. Rough night.
I woke up at 3:30-ish (Saturday morning) feeling paranoid because it sounded like a big truck was idling right outside the house (I have no window that overlooks the street in my bedroom). After about 15 mins of trying to convince myself I was just hearing things, I got up to to check it out. Here’s what I saw:
What the hell??
There were about 10 fire truck and other vehicles parked outside my house. It was about 4 in the morning. I could see more up the hill, where the road curves to the left at the edge of this pic.
It was -12 with a -33 windchill, so I suited up and went to find out wtf was going on.
Turns out a house up the street had caught on fire. Destroyed the house. Everyone got out OK, apparently, but wow. I walked up the street today (-24 degree windchill) to see what had happened.
Still smoking, about 12 hours later.
The water they used to put out the fire froze, beautifully, tragically on the burnt-up frame.
Aside from thoroughly messing up my sleep, it also brought up some pretty powerful memories of when my own house burned down when I was 16. It was quite the life-altering experience, but I guess that’s a story for another day…
Time to talk about domain names you should buy!
Park.io Names at Auction
LSU.me – Gotta be valuable to SOMEone as an email address. Big college.
Varsity.gg – Keeping with the theme… could be a nice brand someday. MIGHT be worth the renewal price to find out…
Namejet, Sedo, and Catched.com Names at Auction
AskA.pro – Not a bad domain hack: ASK A PRO
SmartTees.xyz – Smart whatever is hot + .XYZ is hot, so you got hot hot.
ITExperts.org – .org, yeah, but kind of a big niche.
Gainer.io – not sure this will make reserve cuz it’s not a tier 1 word, but people do love their one-word dot io domains…
Colorfully.org – it’s a mouthful, but it’s a pretty mouthful…
TrainingYourself.com – A nice “by your bootstraps” sounding brand. Could be good for a Masterclass-type competitor (better raise some funds though…)
Ethereu.ms – Sell your ethereums, buy some weeds to smoke in your houses and sell your domains name during the works day. Almost a cool hack, but no one talks like that… Huge reserve. That’s a 0/10 for me

Godaddy Domains With Bids
RealYou.com – A self-improvement app?
LasVegasLimo.com – If you’re ever in your life going to ride in a limo, 99% chance it’ll be while you’re in vegas. Boring brand, but easy to remember. Humungous, undeserved price, though.
VirtualTalent.com – Upwork competitor
OrganicServices.com – Organic brands are always a good idea.
OrganicTreatment.com – Samsies.
SelfDirectedLearning.com – Not as good a brand as Training Yourself, but similar vibe.
BugBog.com – What is a BugBog? I don’t know, but it’s fun to say. Also, as the creator of the world’s most popular (and dumbest) website about bogs, I have a thing for bog names, so I like this one.
Sommerset.com – Sounds rich or something…
New-AG.info – Stupid name, bonkers price. It’s b/c it used to be a site about farming and all the cannabis SEOs are trying to buy it to build a shitty seed bank or strain site on. Trust me on this one…
Smithsonianofi.com – Also SEO.
SeaplaneMagazine.com – Also sounds rich or something. Not many subscribers, but everyone who does is worth 8 figures…
