She had a website and everything and was selling crap on ebay.

She got sometjhing like 60,000 into debt and was basically begging for cash about 3 years ago.

She even went on Fox news to plug the website.

Anyone remember? I wonder if the website is still there.

Passing it on was actually kind of a noble thing.

My sister had an idea for a 'business' based on the same logic. She asked me to build her website for her. I haven't gotten around to it. She claims there are so many people out there that just like to offer a helping hand that she thought a website where people can go and find people who need help with their debt - select them [like pet rescue does] and start helping that she has a moral obligation to facilitate it [for a fee of course].

You know, that ain't a half bad idear.

She freely admits that she racked up the debt on foolishness. I wonder if I gould find 5,000 gun nuts out there to take pity on me.

In 20 short weeks, my website received over two million hits and my all my debt was paid off.

Do it hon, I'm way ahead of you on the down-payment money. You need to catch up.

I wonder if I went apeshit on some NFA stuff if I could just start a website and get people I don't know to send me money.

Or you could just BS the whole thing, then splurge on whatever you wanted.

She wrote a book and probably made even more money that way.

The sad thing is she accumulated all that debt by indulging in too many "Prada pumps and lattes."

I still remember that from a couple years ago when I read about it in Cosmo. I thought, how shameless can you fucking get?

But hey, it's not like she's forcing anyone into it, so I'd on the other hand say it's a pretty smart move, if you have no shame.

What I wonder about is that Save Tobey dude who threatened to kill his rabbit if people didn't donate enough to whatever cause he had.

Anyone see the story on the college guy that sold pixel space and made a million within a few months? Brilliant.

Also seems like someone isn't happy over his success. The site was hacked and down for a few days.

Speaking of the Pixel Site, there is one tho help a disabled fisherman make his dream come true.

I think its www.fishingpixels.com/

So if you guys can Spare a bit and maybe help them out that would be cool, not for prada shoes though.

10 cents a pixel. Maybe we could get an ARFCom logo on his site or something.

It would be pretty easy to get us to pity you

Getting us to help, now that's a different story
