We just don't understand when there are hundreds of applications for these names that Marr
could be so lucky unless he made many applications under many different entities.
I mean it is unreasonable to suggest he could be so lucky

At first glance, a pile of newly created off the shelf companies might
be a slight advantage: 
This makes a farce of the whole "random ballot" process and the one application per
domain/entity rule.  Yes, technically each company is a separate entity but it is
blatantly obvious that these companies are all related and were created for the sole
purpose of the ballot.  Looks like whoever has the deepest pockets wins.
Regardless, I'm no math genius but I would assume that to have a 1 in 4 chance of winning
you would need to have an average of 25% of the applications for each domain.  This makes
the fact that all 5 domains were won by only two of the companies (AUSSIE DESTINATIONS (1)
PTY LTD and AUSSIE DESTINATIONS (2) PTY LTD) even more interesting.
