Check out this suave motherfucker in his silk ruby robe. His name is Jon Schultz and he’s about to sell the domain name ‘Ebola.com’ — which he bought hack in 2008 for $13,500 — for $150,000 now that it’s the biggest talking point around.
According to our site meter, we’re already doing 5,000 page views a day just by people typing Ebola.com to see what’s there. We’re getting enquiries every day about the sale of it. I have a lot of experience in this sort of domain business, and my sense is that $150,000 is reasonable.
Schultz is basically king of the disease domain name game; he already owns birdflu.com, H1N1.com and a bunch of others.
Our domain, birdflu.com, is worth way more than Ebola.com. We’re definitely holding onto that one for the event. That one’s airborne and Ebola would never go airborne in the US like bird flu can.
Meaning he hopes the world gets ravaged by bird flu so that he can rake in a few hundred thousand. Cheers Jon.
So is it really this easy to get rich? If so what the FUCK are the rest of us doing? This guy’s just buying up domain names of diseases that kill people and making an absolute fortune while everyone else around him dies from said disease. Ebola is the new hotness in the streets just like this guy knew it would be the day when he bought Ebola.com back in 2008. Then again, he looks like he might have Ebola so maybe he’s even more ahead of the game than we thought.
No doubt he’ll have bought up domain names for the 10 Weirdest Diseases On Earth already.
