$100 In 3 Weeks

Unread postAuthor: ammosmoke » Fri May 02, 2008 7:25 pm

Ok, I need to make $100 in three weeks. Now, I guess it isn't absolutely necessary that I make all 100, because I am just getting it to blow it on fireworks on the 31st. (Special event I got invited to.) But, I was wondering if you guys had any schemes. Now, I'm not 16 until this June, so I can't get a job. However, I don't think that I could in 3 weeks anyways. Anywho, let the schemes roll in.

EDIT: BTW, this could be quite useful for ppl who want to collect enough cash for their guns. Especially if they want them NOW.

I know how you could make a $100 in an hour...but it's not exactly legal and you'll probably get aids.... :roll:

Thanks for the quick response guys. Internet sales is a good idea, but I'm not sure what I would sell. The craigslist idea sounds doable, but it might be a little bit of a hassle if something goes wrong.

@MrCrowley~~ LMAO!! I cracked up when I read that.

EDIT: Any more ideas?

How 'bout shitty one off jobs for a neighbour or friend? I do jobs like that all the time for my old primary (elementary) school and you get paid well because it's a one off.

Like cleaning gutters or something...the principal even gave me a beer and I was only 14 or 15 at the time :lol:

Quick $20 or so right there.

Okay, first you're going to need 1000 litres of liquid fluorine, thirty 55 gallon drums full of thermite, 19 full sized propane trucks, an EMP device powerful enough to knock out all unshielded communications in a 30 mile radius, 90 metric tonnes of gasoline, 100 suits of level 5 Dragonskin body armor, 100 powered exoskeletons, 200 Browning .50 caliber machine guns, 400 2,000 round belts of incendiary ammunition, 12,000 pounds of smoke producing pyrotechnic composition, the JATO rocket truck from Mythbusters with 20" of supplementary Chobham armour plate, 200 anti-tank mines, at least 500 shaped charge warheads, and a few of those house-sized bricks of HMX that Dave Hall was talking about.

Oh wait, wrong window :shock:
Ah fork, the edit button isn't working. Just go on your way and pretend you never saw that... and stay away from Kentucky for the next few weeks.

Mowing lawns...

Hey manual labor is getting expensive these days. If you don't fear hard work you can a make a killing quick. I've worked quite a few jobs that were $100 (clearing construction sites) a day tax free jobs. Earlier this month I worked for two weeks thinning woods and made a grand.

recycle aluminum/copper...

I just turned in about 200 lbs worth of copper a few days ago (after stripping a crap load of wire my dad had) and got over $700!!!

so i would suggest scrapping some metal if ya got it or getting some from peoples trash. shoot for: copper, aluminum, steel and lead...those are the top sellers. Copper (in wisconsin) is up to $3.60/lb!

so just a couple hours of work and i got 700 bucks...not bad eh?

I hear that. My neighbor gave me a big roll of aluminum wire with steel core a while back(week long project stripping it all). Unfortunately I needed the money then and I sold 50 lbs of it for $80. The price went way up the next week or so :oops:

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it’s empty now…

Ammosmoke, I can loan you a hundred, as long as you don’t mind it being in gold. :D


Buy the way DYI, you’re a bit off, it took 35 55 gallon drums of thermite, and API and APIT rounds come in handy… :D
