    I just googled "How to do brain surgery on yourself" to save myself some money.

    Then I'm going to take the money that I saved on the brain surgery to invest in domains and make $51million by closed of business next Friday.

    Wish me luck! With the brain surgery thing....the domain thing is the easy part right or is it the other way around?

    Back to the brain surgery tutorial...

    no need.. brain surgeries don't require any anaesthetics because the brain itself can not feel any pain (even during opening the skull not required).. that's why you also often see brain surgery patients fully aware during the whole surgery and being constantly tested with arithmetics, conversations, eye-finger tests etc. by the nurses to see if their brain still works or got affected by some wrong cut or stab inside..
    i would recommend reading "Do no harm" by Henry Marsh to delve into the fascinating world of brain surgeries.. and now back to topic ;)

    Wow! Thanks, you made it sound easy. Maybe I'll read "brain surgery guide" from "for dummies" series and become a guru or sherpa or something in that area ))

    This was a fun read. Full of dreams more than substance, for sure. Domaining may have been a hobby for me at the start, and I liked picking up seo names back in the day for development purposes, but I assure you even had it been full time it would've still taken me a couple of years to truly understand the value of domains. I am glad I moved away from the pigeon s**** I picked up back then. :) Maybe that was just me though, young and naive.

    People like Ali Zandi are an exception of course.

    Came across this thread. No clear response from the "Subject" of the interview.
    I'm surprised to see the August Updates to the OP. Would be interested in more information so that the rest are better prepared when dealing with the folks mentioned in the post. @James Iles or @Eric Lyon Are you able to provide more information regarding the updates?

    Thank you
