    I'm interested to see how .xxx domains end up going. I probably wouldn't invest into those domains personally.

    Not even wait, I'm sure you could have unloaded a ton of them around the dot com bubble, before it burst.

    I remember reading a story years ago, I think it was from John Reece. He said when he first started out, which musta been mid to late 90s, he sold a domain name to someone for $1000. At the time, he was dead broke, so he was ecstatic. A week later, the guy phones him and says something like "I have to tell you, I didn't want that domain, I turned around and sold it for $1,000,000."
