Easiest 50 bucks I will ever make... I challenge you!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Freakin Idiot, Sep 5, 2005.


  1. I and a a friend of mine have decided to whore ourselves out to the science industry starting off with a medical study involving the colon. Here's how it goes:
    1. Drink sugar drink.
    2. Urinate in a can.
    3. Make #2 in a box.
    4. Get $50.

    The proceeds will go to the "New Power Amp for Darren" fund. I've considered eating a veggie dinner just to give 'em hell. Just kidding. I wouldn't really do that.

    But I challenge all of you to come up with stories of the easiest money you ever made...not including the $20 you found outside the Astrodome 2 years ago...

    The person with the best story will win the accessories used to conduct this study on me.

    One of my old roommates put himself through college by taking part in pharmaceutical studies. They were big-time studies where he had to stay there for a couple of nights but he'd make 2 or 3 thousand dollars per study. I can't remember the name of the company but it was some place in Austin.

    He seems to be doing ok except for the extra hand that has grown out of the middle of his back.

    Me and buddy of my went fishing... then some guy comes up to us and goes "uh we are stuck..."

    They took a 2 wheel drive car place where I had to go into 4wd low range and got stuck :)

    I gave them ride to town (around 5minz plus us stopping to get some of the best chocolate milk shakes ever) they gave us $60... We went back to fishing/drinking/smokingÂ… it was fun


    So basically we went fishing and caught $60

    So basically we got paid $60 for just drinking a best milkshake in the world... no pissing or crapping involved...

    I paid someone a dollar to try and crush a Slimfast can on his face. That was probably the most painful dollar that guy ever made.

    But it was so funny. He had a red ring on his forehead for the rest of the day.
     
  7. I make money from activities I don't want my mother knowing about.

    Some one paid me $10 to drink slimfast type of thing in under 10 seconds... Imagine slimfast but 10times worse taste and chunky... i think it was bad... i got my $10 though and then won $40 with those $10 in a poker game (texas).

    It was worth the 20 minz i spent on the toilet after that drink...

    Did the stuff you drank use the same ridiculously thick can that a Slimfast can does? I swear those things are about an inch thick.

    We had a guy at one of my old jobs that would do anything for money.

    Here is the top five nasty/stupid things he did.

    5. Ate a potato filled with sour cream that soaked in pickle juice all day.
    4. Drank a full bowl of chili grease
    3. Ate flies off a fly-strip for 1 dollar a fly
    2. Ate a piece of roast beef off a dirty kitchen floor after it had been stepped on
    1. Ate a piece of bread that was in my pocket for an hour, was then kicked around the entire restaurant, and then used to sop up the grease ring on the inside of a dish sink. On the first bite he pulled out a hair that was about 2 feet long.

    One time I made $25 off kserg on a horserace, and then another $25 on the replay. Took about two minutes. :D

    I've made quite a bit playing poker, and that's pretty easy for me, if that counts.

    I watched my father make $10,000. from two phone calls that took about 5 minutes. He called one place to buy a well drilling hammer, then made another call to sell it. That's all he had to do. The hammer was delivered to the guy he sold it to.

    As for me, I bought a $5 scratch ticket, scratched it, and won $100. That was pretty easy. I also won $20 when I was a wee bit younger for snorting a line of salt. I don't recommend this, it burns like mad.
