    This has probably been done before but, what is a really good way to make money. We can't get a job, because all of us are slightly under the working age here.....which is 16. I really can't think of anything at all that'll bring in money fast. We would really like to play some gigs this summer and we need a new PA System soooo........any suggestions? :help:

    Don't know if this applies to where you live, but try mowing lawns. You'll have to knock on a lot of doors to find customers though.

    I don't know you're location, but if there are any farms nearby, you probably make some money (get a workout and a tan) haying, or picking rock. Its funner than it sounds, back in high school (1996-2000) I was making $7-$10 per hour plus dinner sometimes.

    Doesn't the FBI pay for information directly leading to the capture of wanted individuals?

    $3,000,000 for information that leads to the capture of Hannibal Lecter.

    (Or you could sell drugs.(Or you could be a prostitute.))
     
  7. grab an acoustic and go to your city park, or to a grocery store front, and play.


    Downside is you can play all day and somtimes make only enough for lunch

  14. Hired assassin (requires much skill to not get caught)
    Lottery winner (have someone old enough buy a ticket and promise them 15%)
    Thief (like assassin, it requires much skill)
    Fashion Designer (requires celebrity dedorsements)

    He asked for suggestions and I stated mine. You may have said it but I'm simply agreeing with the idea jokingly. Maybe if you weren't so anal about someone agreeing, restating or even stating his own opinion you wouldn't be such a jerk. You may have not intended to be a jerk but without the use of smilies it is hard to tell someones 'internet tone' to see how they intended things to be understood.

    I hope this doesn't get me in trouble.
     
  17. I think we may have a few who find it funny but it really shouldn't be posted on a family forum. Gave me a laugh though.
