    Since I moved I haven't invested much time on BHW since my wifi has been on and off thanks to the neighbors but I have finally found some time in which to invest and give back to BHW now while BF BC2 downloads... I used to do this method back in middle school but now thought of a way to amplify the returns...

    Every day you see prices for 16oz to 20oz bottles of soda in vending machines range from $1.00 to $2.00 just for a simple soda. Time to make profits off these high prices. Go to your local grocery store and find the bottled soda isle. Where I live you can find 4 (6 packs) of 24oz soda for $10.88 or so which isn't bad. In actuality it comes out to about $0.50 a soda.

    Now find a cooler and fill it with ice and put these sodas in layers through out the cooler. I have seen some 100 qt. coolers hold 72 or so 24oz sodas but these cost $60+ so here is a simpler idea for the broke. Go find a storage container and fill it up with ice and do the same thing and you will be able to fit 100+ 24 oz sodas in it. Total price for investment afterward if you buy 100+ sodas and a storage container is about $50-60.

    Next go to your local welcome center / rest stop on the interstate closest to your home and park your ass in the picnic area with your home made cooler full of sodas and a small / medium sized sign that says 24oz sodas $1.00. Also make a small flyer and tape it to the machine saying 24oz sodas for $1.00 in picnic area. Last thing to do is sit and wait for the customers. So many people a day come to the welcome center / rest area on the interstate and get drinks its not funny.

    If you sell 100 sodas a day you make $13 per 24. That is an easy $54+ a day sitting on your ass. :D

    Thank you BHW for the support... I give a method that actually works if you invest a little time and money into it and you get double what you spent back and 83 people viewed it and only 1 kind person replied within the thread. This makes me not want to contribute shit to the community since no one can leave a thanks or anything but some of the 83 people who viewed this will try this method in one way or another...

    If you live near clubs you can make a lot of money selling water and other drinks outside of them (the drinks inside, if there are any, are obscenely expensive). Just don't protest if you're asked to leave by bouncers...

    Open sporting events work too. If you have a kid in say a local soccer club, you could make a few dollars at each game.

    jeliky had the right idea. Outsource this mess to bums. Setup shop at every rest station within 100 miles, send out the bums with soda, and stay at home in the air conditioning. Tie the bum to a tree so they can't get loose and steal your money. Give the bum 50/50 at the end of the day.

    He may have the right idea but I would stay away from bums... not being a prick or anything but a very easy way to have your merchandise and money stolen. On the other hand maybe post a job ad on CL and offer the folks 50% of what ever the earnings for the day are. Kinda have these people walk around local events etc with a tote bag full of sodas to sell. When they run out have them come back and pick up more sodas and have them hand you over the commission and you just give them back 50% of what you where given.

    Cool way to make some money but I'm not sure if this is the right forum for it. I Posted something once about using a Craigslist Snow Removal AD, to get your phone ringing in the winter with a bunch of leads to plow etc. There were tons of replies to the thread most people were complaining about how it wasn't related & wtf was it doing on the forum. This thread has got some pretty good feedback on it so far maybe it should be moved to the lounge instead of getting tanked like mine. My thread had to be deleted noway did it make it in the VIP section.

    This is the making money section of the making money parts of the forums...I see no reason why a method that makes money shouldn't be here, whether it has anything to do with the internet or not.

    Hell if you are doing that why stop there anyway with the drinks. You know what you can buy really cheap that tons of people eat around this time of year. Hotdogs you can get them dirt cheap in bulk then sell them for $1 each. Sell a combo 2 hotdogs & a soda for $2.50. thats $9 for 12 hotdogs. You can buy FMV Hotdogs for like $.50-60c minus buns. Speaking of which.. Order empty bottles online with custom logos then sell those not everyone drinks soda, bunch of health nuts. Another thing you can make sure cheap is ramen noodles but I dont see that selling lol.. but I would buy a bowl for $.30 ;P

    I agree RFoster. However I think all the methods posted here have to relate to the internet. Maybe my thread was deleted for another reason. I wanted to tell the OP so he knows if his thread disappears that is most likely what has happened.

    Alright....

    This is BHW, the idea is to take other peoples ideas and 'Spin' then to make something new and profitable.

    So, what do people want more than an ice cold Coke after they have been on the road for hours/days. A Blow Job.

    So. Go down to your local community center, college etc and charm the ass off a few girls (this isn't one for the pasty shy nerds!), but when I say charm the ass off them, I mean charm the ass of them, or at least charm the cloths off their ass.

    Now that you have them under your complete control (some of them may need you to slap them around a little or stick a needle in their arm) you put them to work on the interstate.


    BAM!

    I just turned your weak ass $54 into $5400.

    Feel free to make your donation checks out to your local women shelter (also another good place to find potential 'employees').

    Perhaps only one person thought it worthy of thanks. I don't and here is why.

    Although I am not sure of the laws in your state, in my state there would
    be a hefty fine for selling without a food license and another for selling at
    a rest area.

    Also, I wouldn't get out of bed for 54.00.

    Black, it wouldn't work around here either. You see at rest stops, sporting events, and any event for that matter has the following:
    Police which will bust your venture for the sheer fun of it
    Bouncers that will kick your ass
    If selling food, the health department will shut your ass down in a week and leave you with a $10k fine- I used to help cook food for a guy that did that and that's what happened to him!!
    Janitors at the rest stop will kick you out and 9 times out of 10 call the police.
    At kids sports games they have what's called a food counter which primarily pays for the clubs so have fun getting your ass kicked by a caring crowd of parents.

    I mean it started out as a good idea, but no matter what your just going to get your ass handed to you by the man, by men and even maybe our fair and quick legal system!

    Why not just put a taxi sticker on your car and start chilling out at the strip club and bars waiting for drunks in need of a DD!?!?
