    If you read my previous post you'll know why. I dont exactly want to get a job, but that's not the answer you want to hear. Any suggestions? Well there's always drug trafficing.

    Yeah, get a job. (No that's that what I didn't want to hear - that's what you didn't want to hear.)
    You'll be off to a really fine start if you compound your tickets and wreck with a felony [​IMG]

    Or you could sell your car. Then you'd have the money from that AND you wouldn't have to pay for the insurance!

    Just remember, even drug dealing is a job, you have to worry about client acquisition, marketing, accounting, supply and demand, security, etc. It is actually much more complicated than you might think, assuming you

    (a) don't want to get arrested

    (b) don't want to die

    (c) don't want to waste away your profits from consuming them yourself...

    Yes, my roommate in college dealt a huge amount of pot. He made a "killing" so to speak, put himself through college, came out an mechanical engineer and everything. then, to piss me off more, he married a rich girl with a plantation in Alabama and just plays golf all the time now...

    Makes me sick to think of him, really, that bastard...

    If you want to make $5,000 per year, then take $100,000 and buy some bonds at an interest rate of 5% per year. Or, there's always the drug-dealing thing.

    If you don't live in a state with a bottle deposit law, you could move to one. Then, by gathering just 137 ten-centers a day (7 days/week) you could meet your goal.
    Problem solved![​IMG]

    Here in Canada, even if you are dead, you can still apply for welfare! Dead people get natural gas rebate cheques here too. If you could somehow, like, get dead, and move to Canada, you should easily be able to get 5 grand a year!!

    I was listening to the radio the other day and Mark Cuban was on (Dallas was playing the Lakers that night). The guys were joking with him, and then asked "what's the best way to make money?"

    He replied, "Get a job, put money in the bank." Seriously.

    Get a job and/or do some very wise investing. What are your current bills? Internet access is roughly $24 a month. Multiply that by 12 months and you can save yourself $288 a year. Driving a 'vette that you are currently paying for? Trade it in for a Cavalier. Gas, insurance, and payment savings should be around $2,000 a year. Paying $700 a month for rent? Move to either a smaller apartment or another area. You could easily save $200 or more a month that way. Rather than ordering out for pizza every other night eat popcorn or pasta. That is another $600 a year in savings. In essence, if you want to save money without getting a job you need to cut back on all expenses as much as you can. There is no other way outside of making money on investing. But then you also need to be prepared to lose money too.

    Hmmm... 16 years old and you want money but don't want to work. If you figure it out, you could sell the idea and make WAAAY more than $5,000.00.

    I'd even buy it.

    Van, you need to step into the real world...

    Get a weekend job. Even at $6 an hour you'll make $4992 a year working every weekend 8hrs/day. If you don't want to work every weekend, work every Saturday and two 4hr nights/week. Of course you'll make more since you can work there summers and holidays too. Suck it up. It worked for me and most other people.

    I bought AMD stock after the 9/11 crash. 250 shares @ 7.93. It hit $17.90 today and I'm cashing out. Not a bad return for a 3 month investment.

    Of course before you can make easy money you have to have money to invest.
