    Hey BlackHatWorld, what's the weirdest niche market you've come across, barring the sexual ones?

    I found quite an interesting one when I started playing piano about 2 years ago. It's the perfect pitch market. There are dozens of websites and books devoted to "teaching" people how to aquire perfect pitch, which is the ability to hear any note played on any instrument and name it. It's a neat party trick within music circles, but it's pretty useless for any practical music stuff

    Thing is it's not possible to learn perfect pitch, so it's just a scam market. You have to take vigorous music lessons at a very young age to aquire it. If you don't, you lose out on it forever.

    What are other one-offs like this that you guyd can think of?

    Hehe cloud hash cracking was a big thing at one point. I remember downloading massive rainbow tables when I was a kid.

    When I was 12 I remember downloading word lists for Ophcrack, writing fork bomb batch files, and booting into safe mode to access that one admin account that was never disabled by default on XP systems.

    I thought I was the shit... lmao. "Leet hacker" but I didn't know the difference between TCP and UDP. I was such a cocky kid, honestly.
