Way back in 2001 or so, while i was brainstorming late one night, trying to come up with some catchy, inventive, and perhaps even valuable domain names, i fell upon the register.com site and found to my surprise, that worthlessslut.com was indeed available, along with quite a few variations on the theme. i have no doubt that some hardworking server came up with these suggestions on the fly. trashyslut, paltryslut, all make sense, sort of. but then you come to worthlessjade.com. this doesn't make any sense at all. why?

tonight, as i was cleaning up my site, i thought i would try and answer that question. so i typed slut and jade into google and lo and behold, the second hit is the columbia dictionary entry for jade - redirected from slut. why? here is the link: http://columbia.thefreedictionary.com/slut. perhaps this explains it..

ps. last time i checked in 2004, worthlessslut.com was still available.
