..but I won't do anything illegal and I'd REALLY prefer not to work for it either.

So, I'm looking for other ideas.

What say you?

Is there any really rich guy who needs me to like, mow his lawn or something?

If it's worth $10,000 I'll go so far as triple entendre.

Not too quickly.

Within a few months would be nice.

But I know where you're going. Allow medical science to poke and prod me.

Maybe I could go hiking and find some crap that I can sell on ebay under the guise of "Tin Can from the Old West" and "Leaves from Billy The Kid's Favorite Tree" type stuff.

Interesting.

You could try getting an extra job and work mega-hours, but I'm sure that doesn't sound too appealing.

I recommend befriending the elderly.

whistlelock
07-27-2006, 02:09 AM
You could do that, you could do that.

But in two hours a grey Lincoln towncar will pull up to your door. I want you to take the package. Sit on it for a day. Then go to the Denver airport, to the American booth, there will be a ticket for a Mr. Thrillman waiting for you.

Now, this is key.

Check the luggage.

Take the plane to Puerto Viarta, and enjoy the Budget Inn.

When you get back, there will be 12k in your mailbox.

I'd need a first job first before I could get the extra job and like I said, let's really try to leave work out of this.

Work and Thrilly don't mix.

Errrrr ... I don't know what you look like but male exotic dancers can apparently make good money. Three male strippers were stopped in Maryland for a speeding violation and police confiscated $10,000 that they claim to have made in one night's gig.


I can't take any chances with my political career with anything sex related.

The last thing Thrilly and I will need when we're in the white house will be ANOTHER sex scandal.

Billy... What about this?

Go to everyone you know, and tell them you're doing a postathon for charity. All they have to do is donate a little bit of money for each messageboard post you can make in 24 hours. 10% of the money will go to pay for expenses, the other 90% will go to the charity.

Let's look at numbers.

You get 10 people to donate an average of 25 cents a post. In 24 hours you post 100 posts. That's 250 dollars, of which you get $25, and a charity gets $225.

Now, what if you get a HUNDRED people to pledge, at 50 cents a post? And you post 150 posts? That's 750 dollars for you, 6750 for the charity.

But let's say you bust your *** on it, get 500 people to pledge an average of 1 dollar a post, and you post 200 posts.

BINGO.

$100,000. You get 10% of that, $10,000.

Can you re-wire an old house? Do carpentry? Level the floors?

I'll pay you $10K to level the house and re-wire it.

You have to be an electrician, though.

Or ............

what can you sell?

Do you own your own home? If so, maybe you can refinance or take out a second mortgage, but interest rates are up ..........would only recommend doing that in an emergency.

dclary
07-27-2006, 02:40 AM
If by "level" you mean "flatten" then I'll take you up on that.

You really want me to rewire it before I smash it, though?

eldragon
07-27-2006, 02:42 AM
No, you'd think thats what it means, but it doesn't.

It means:

Got shaky floors?
Doors that won't close?

It means old houses didn't put enough support beams down there to :
A: Last 115 years.
B: Hold up all the heavy appliances we have nowadays.

So - the floors start to sag and need to be reinforced.

SC Harrison
07-27-2006, 02:43 AM
Amazingly enough, you can also make up to $105 per visit selling sperm. (And before you say no, who said anything about having sex?)

If your wife wants to sell her eggs, a fertility clinic will pay $3000-$5000.

This doesn't seem fair. I'd have to go a couple times a day the whole month just to make the same as one egg-drop. Wait a minute...nevermind. I could totally do this.

Oh, and my cousin once went around his school asking for 1 peso to make himself rich. Any person he encountered, he'd ask for 1 peso so he could be rich. People thought he was cute.

Well, he didn't get rich but he bought himself a very good cellphone on the money he made.

Someone sold a grilled cheese sandwich with the image of Madonna on it through eBay for $28,000.

A guy on eBay sold the back of his head for a tattooed advertisement for $7,000. (I think eBay has now prohibited this type of sale.)

Various charitable groups are now selling items on eBay. The Viriginia Living Museum in Newport raised $30,000 over two years through the sale of donated items. According to the following article, over 225 charities sell items on eBay.

You could say if you don't get $10,000,000, Oral Roberts (or the televangelist of your choice) won't be called home. I wonder if you'd get the 10 mill in half the time Oral did...

I say go to Amsterdam. You wouldn't get the money, but you'd forget about it pretty quickly.

Or, only do half work. Pilfer pocket change for a while- it's not illegal, just inconvenient and uncourteous in most respects.

You could do what I do, give back rubs. You can wring your frustrations into the rub-ee's back, and you still get paid a decent amount.

Proof read for that aunt that it 58 and still in college, but doesn't want to do any work for herself.
