Those crazy Brits just want to go on a "cruises"

The cruise industry just wasted $1 million on a domain.

Americans can't get sex off their minds, with "sex.com" the most expensive domain name in history ($12 million). But those wild and crazy Brits? They just want to go on cruises, with "cruises.co.uk" being bought recently for roughly $1 million.

I've never been on a cruise. Unfortunately for "cruises.co.uk," I'm unlikely to go on one that they offer, because a Google search doesn't bring up that domainin the top ten. But maybe if I input "cruises UK"?

Nope. But "cruise.co.uk" does. $1 million doesn't stretch as far as it used to....
