Being a Capitalist, I'm always looking for new ways to make money. I was thinking this could be a good area for an exchange of ideas. I'm already into Real Estate investing and some stock trading. What are some of your guys ideas?

Bank Robbery. I need some new clients.

I have all the plans for a home garage cheese making kit. Can you picture the infomercial?

Here's a few I've been working on: * Dog-flavored ice cream. * Air-conditioning for your pants. * Genetically-engineered skinless cucumbers. * Movie theater seat/toilet bowl combination. * Dung beetle farming. * A pencil that writes in braille. Okay, now you owe me royalties [s]if[/s] when these ideas come to fruition.

The only thing in the stock market that looks good to me are gold producer stocks. Check this chart out, an index of small gold producers over the past 2 years: [url]http://stockcharts.com/def/servlet/SC.web?c=$HUI,uu[h,a]wacayyay[pb20!b40][vc60][iUb21!Ly­a7,14,28]&pref=G[/url] Compare it to index charts for NASDAQ: [url]http://stockcharts.com/def/servlet/SC.web?c=compq,uu[h,a]wacayyay[pb20!b40][vc60][iUb21!L­ya7,14,28]&pref=G[/url] The S&P 500: [url]http://stockcharts.com/def/servlet/SC.web?c=spy,uu[h,a]wacayyay[pb20!b40][vc60][iUb21!Lya­7,14,28]&pref=G[/url] and the Dow: [url]http://stockcharts.com/def/servlet/SC.web?c=indu,uu[h,a]wacayyay[pb20!b40][vc60][iUb21!Ly­a7,14,28]&pref=G[/url]. It's amazing. And yet you don't hear a PEEP about gold on CNBC, except for denigrating and pooh-poohing it. CNBC has no problem recommending stocks that have fallen 50% or more this year, always citing "This is the bottom, the economy's recovering and these stocks are cheap!". The market continues to fall each time they urge people to get back in. Meanwhile, they ignore gold stocks that are up 50% or more for the year. Something VERY FISHY about that. So buy gold, and when CNBC finally starts hyping it (when all the big players have accumulated as much as possible and now need suckers to sell them to), you'll know the time to sell will be at hand.

I recommend the HP Photosmart 7550 photo printer as the ideal money making device. [;D] I can't believe nobody else thought of this!

As a capitalist, you should realize that if anyone does have a really nifty idea, if they have any brains they sure as hell are not going to tell you. Just a little eye opener...from one capitalist to another.

PROFITS...LOL. Thats a good one. Seriously, GUNS. Especially the ones they will ban in 2004. Nothing goes up like a grandfathered in firearm. In the early 1980s I paid the following RETAIL prices for NIB guns: HK91 $400.00 currently about $2,000.00 HK93 $400.00 currently about $2,500.00 Steyr AUG $600.00 currently about $4,000.00 HK94 $600.00 currently about $4,000.00 Colt HBar A2 $350.00 currently about $2,000.00 Polytec AK47 $225.00 currently about $1,200.00 Lets see gold do that. Now if only I had bought that SIG550 for $700.00.

Word on the street around here is that smuggling illegals is quite lucrative.

Serious Ideas huh? Sure play the lotto. Or, go to med. school. Or law school. Or veterinarian school. Get a college degree--learn a profession/trade in high demand. Unless you are a very independant, highly motivated self-starter, don't bother with any of these. That applies to starting you own business or anything else in life as well. It's real simple. If simply asking others for some ideas on what to do is your only plan of attack, you might as well quit now. And you wonder why you get all of the sarcastic replies? Edited to Add: Didn't mean to sound so harsh, but really, you just have to do it. Decide on the path and go. After enough time to T&E, if it sucks, get to the point you can change gears, and go again.

First you have no idea what schooling I have.

I already own a profitable business. I've owned a business for 7 years. Which proves I'm a self starter.

Asking others is not my only plan of attack. As I wrote earlier. I own a profitable business. I'm always looking for other streams of income.
And you wonder why you get all of the sarcastic replies?

I expect a certain amount of smart ass replies from you guys[:D]

Develop software or a web site that allows people to surf for porn from work. I figure anything that allows people to work less and view porn will sell.

How about - become CEO of a large company, give yourself interest free loan which you invest in the stock market, buy yourself mansions and other real estate; then forgive yourself the loan; book company expenses as revenue; create secret side ventures - you suck in this capital and move your corporate liabilities over on to this balance sheet; fire a bunch of employees then go to the board and show them all the 'expenses' you are saving - get another big bonus; do your investment banking at the same firm managing your personal portfolio - make sure they dial you by 'mistake' when they get a hot tip about some goings on either good or bad about some initial public offering. Did I miss anything?
