This ought to spark some interesting ideas.

How should I make some extra cash while still in college since I can't swing a part time job? I think I will probably try and tutor dumbass hot college coeds, but that just might not pan out.



Edit for spelling.

Don't do any get rich type schemes. Do you own a car? And do you have any place at your school to do high quality printing?

I've helped out a friend to do some side work doing telephony work. I'm learning, little by little.

I've got a apartment, a car(how long it lives is another storey) and everything to pay for all I *need* but I don't want a part time job because I am trying to keep my GPA up for law school. I need hookers, blow, ammo and liquor money.

Edit: I'm not as young as you might think, I'm 23 and have ~ a year left to get my bachelors. I've been around a few times at this point.

If you live in dorms, post an ad about cleaning rooms. It will take a small investment of garbage bags, cleaner, etc. Have a contract made out, and make sure that it will be done on your time. If you get it clean, word of mouth will follow. I was making about 20 dollars for no more than 30 minutes of work (usually less). I was a bit lucky because I was in an all guy dorm, and for the most part the rooms were covered in clothes, books, video games, and beer cans. I was could easily bring in 200-300 dollars a week without busting my ass.

Provide printing to local business. With the market the way it is go after real estate agents. Find out the price of your local office max and simply beat it and offer to beat it and faster turn around. Make some cold calls etc. You can make $700-800 a week doing this about 1-2 hours a day.

Fortune Telling
For prophecy in the context of revealed religions see Prophet.

Fortune-telling is the practice of predicting the future, usually of an individual, through seemingly mystical or supernatural means and often for commercial gain. It often conflates with the religious practice known as divination.

Common methods used of fortune telling include astrology, tarot card reading (cartomancy), crystallomancy (reading of a crystal sphere), and cheiromancy (reading of the palms, or palmistry). The latter three have traditional associations in the popular mind with the Roma and Sinti people (often called "gypsies"). Various forms of fortune-telling appear throughout the world. Typical topics that fortune-tellers make predictions on include future romantic, financial, and childbearing prospects.

In contemporary Western culture, it appears that women consult fortune-tellers more than men: some indication of this comes from the profusion of advertisements for commercial fortune-telling services in magazines aimed at women, whilst such advertisements appear virtually unknown in magazines aimed specifically at men. Telephone consultations with psychics (charged to the caller's telephone account at very high rates) grew in popularity through the 1990s.

Virtually all scientists regard fortune-telling as pseudoscience. They believe that several factors explain its popularity and anecdotal accuracy:

Predictions almost always use vague terms and do not lend themselves to falsification.
Confirmation bias predisposes people to look for cases where predictions can be interpreted as accurate more than they look to find inaccurate ones.
Consumers of fortune-telling services may also fail to realise that statements made about them might reflect reality, but would equally apply to most other people (for instance, the statement "you fought with your parents sometimes as a teenager" applies to a large majority of people). This is the Forer effect.
Fortune-tellers usually exhibit skills at reading people and telling them what they wish to hear (the technique of "cold reading").
A person who performs a divination for himself or herself may be using his or her reactions to the arbitrary stimuli (such as tarot cards) as a way of mentally organizing his or her own thoughts or intentions.
