Million Dollar Homepage

This is unbelievable.

MillionDollarHomepage is a website started by a kid in the UK to make some money for college (or "Uni" as they say over there).  His idea: sell 1,000,000 pixels for US$1 each, in blocks of 100 (10x10 pixels).  Each buyer would send him a small image file, and he would put it on the front page of, as a link back to the buyer’s website.

He started this two months ago, at the end of August 2005, and has made over half a million dollars in those two months.

I need to come up with a way to make my business do so well!

Don’t you just hate these ’why didn’t I think of that?’ ideas?  Dang.............
And this was an awesome idea!

Anthony’s Mom took the words out of my mouth. Or the thoughts out of my head? Or the keystrokes out of my fingertips? Hmmmm. OK, I had the same thought before reading the comments section. :)

I thought of the idea of those finger covers to brush your teeth on the go literally a month before I started seeing commercials for them.  It probably doesn’t matter because it’s not like I would ever try to make money off of an idea like that but it still bothered me.  Anyway, you gotta love when stupid ideas like this pay off.  Anyone for a game of pogs?

Pogs... I haven’t seen or thought of that word or the game in years.
