    Other ideas:

    • Become a stripper, you'd have to be ripped like Jesus to do that though.
    • Play at Moola.com
    • Dedicate your life and soul to one game and become really good at it enough to go to a competition and beat other players for lots of money ($1,000 - $10,000) / Professional Gamer.
    • Make a pornsite.
    • Sell oranges on the street.

    Here is a realistic and practical suggestion that you could start working on right now. Write and market an information based e-book. Most likely some kind of "how to" e-book. And make sure there's a good market for it that you can actually tap into.

    Also, get the best paying job that you're currently qualified for. You need money for leverage. If you go with the e-book idea, for example, the extra $100 a week will be well worth the time it took for you to make it. Why? Because you'll be able to use that money to buy all the best information that will help you accomplish your goal. It could possibly take you 150 hours of trial and error to get to the same level of competency that you could achieve if you worked for just a few hours at a crappy job and bought an $80 book that teaches you everything you need to know about that particular endeavor. Information is worth paying for. It's sometimes better to work for money and buy the information than to the simply look for or discover the information on your own because you'll save a lot of time.

    Find an economic niche to fill. For most people, this is a normal job but if you want to get rich, dicovering a new niche and being the first to develope it can allow you to monopolize that industry, feild, whatever it may be.

    Your wealth depends on your customers. The market is give and take and you seek from them what optimal qualities they seek from you. Quanity- your amount of speculated customers and quality- the wealth of specualted customers are areas to consider when thinking of starting a bussiness.
    The best niche to fill though, I don't think money would be it's primary purpose. It would be a genuine necessity like devloping a cure, or an honest creation of art to please people and yourself.
    So basically, if you want to find of an economic niche, think of a want or need you have. If you ever come across one that isn't yet being provided that feasibly could well then, there is your golden oppurtunity.

    So what do people want? and enjoy? I think you could answer as well as I. Also, I wouldn't realy discount the value of novelty. (Snuggies!) It can get you fairly far. However you generally need money to start off with to make money, which is I think where stock holders come in to play. Or maybe you could just get starting loans?

    So yeah. All other ways besides that I'm pretty sure involve exploitation and are unethical to some degree. I would seriously not recommend exploiting your ethics in order to get more money- power esscentially- that you think will make you happy. It's so not worth it. And it won't. If you haven't already culitvated your abilities for happiness with what you have already, then excess won't help.

    Think why you even want to get rich to begin with? Is it to fulfill something concrete? Like you want to get rich so you can run for office or help this charity? Do you already know exactly what you want your money for? Exactly in the long term? Or are you just chasing after some lifestyle . . . some ideal, or imagined way of life that if you only had that THEN you would be happy. Well, if you don't even know what you want, what makes you happy, than all the money in the world won't be able to buy it for you. Even when you aquire the lifestyle you've dreamed of, you will not aquired what you've been missing all this time. You won't have changed at all and soon you'll find yourself feeling as you did before except now you will be sorely jaded because you spent all that time and effort to learn one of the most basic lessons of life.

    Probably these have been suggested already, but for quick money (or busto):

    - online poker (well ok, the tables are getting tougher)
    - short term trading (derivatives especially) and financial markets in general

    The biggest profits, as far as I know, come from selling weapons, drugs, and sex. The business may be a bit risky.
