Ever consider the stock market? Oh wait, the only industries that are thriving are guns and soup.
...I guess you could invest money in those things...

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

did you actually make enough money to make it worth your time? Seems it would have been better to go get a part time job at wal-mart.

there is also chacha. My wife did it for a while but to make any amount of money you have to spend a lot of time on it. You'd be better off getting a part time job.

Sell pics of yourself in various... situations

Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

Nigerian Scammers have hit hard times due to the economy.

You know it is bad when even the crooks are broke.

My friend made quite a few hundred doing Google and Amazon ads. I think his Amazon ads were the most profitable. He bought in about $100-200 on holiday seasons (He used to make a lot from PS3 sales, until Amazon capped the amount people got from expensive items :D ). Although he did get banned from both for a reason I didn't ask. He did make enough money to buy things he needed like textbooks, monitors, and etc. I think he had $350-ish left of his Amazon money. He was obviously doing something with the ads that he shouldn't have been. That's why he got banned. So simply putting ads on a site, might not get the income he was getting.

You will need to be a decent web designer and have a good traffic flow through the site. Which he had both of. He went to State championships for web design in high school. Forgot where he placed, but I think he was a finalist.
