Re: How to make $500 quick
Are you a good fighter? You could go up to someone, say, "listen...you pay me $50 and I won't beat you with 12 graphing calculators and a ASCII-Dump printer...k?"
I'm sure you could find a couple people willing to fork out the cash. You could even up your price if you wanted to REALLY mean.
eBay does wonders, but that's being reasonable...and well, that's boring.
