Both of my brothers, at one time or another, have played the "Buy domain names poker" game. That's where you try to spot an emerging trend, and buy up the logical address names before other people think to grab them. If you guess right, you might have an opportunity to sell the name to someone who wants to capitalize.
Others might buy domains to prevent them from being on the market period. For example, it wouldn't be beyond the pale for Trump's people to buy up "Putins_Cock_Holster" (search on the term if you don't understand) to prevent anyone else from using it.
My older brother sold a domain for $10,000 (I can't remember what it was called). My younger brother bought "FuckTrump" (not sure about the exact syntax -- if, for example, there's a space) recently, so I might be able to get you a bargain if you are interested.
