Sue break.com for your lost revenue due to their stealing of your video and the expenses you incurred as a result.

Oh I have another idea to earn you the money you need.

Why not make the Loading Ready Live DVDs and the various t-shirts you kept saying you would make in the past podcasts?

I know you did say that, cuz I listened to many podcasts from before I joined the forums.

I'd have to agree with the other person about working in Alberta. Go up to some place like Fort McMurray and get on the oil sands. If a bunch of you go up for 3 weeks you will bring home a boatload of money, probably like $30/hr or more plus overtime, and if your in a camp your essentials are taken care of for you.

Even if you just go up there and work at the Tim Hortons, I hear they pay over $20/hr there because it's hard to find staff. If you do that though, it might be best to get the trailer, as basement suites go for over $1500/month

Another option a friend of mine is looking into for himself is to invest in a development that is here in Cranbrook, BC called Wildstone. [url]discoverwildstone.com[/url] Apparently, you can get one of the plots for $140 000, but you don't need to pay until they break ground in August, so if you can sell it to someone in Victoria before that, your golden. Supposedly by August they will be worth at least $220 000.

Just remember if you need cash to get one of these ideas started, you could always pawn your computers and consoles.

Sublet some of your apartments for a month and move in together. It would be like a slumber party that never ends.

Although, I think people are confusing $1500 and $15000. They are different numbers, people!

And all those in the cast with a good enough credit rating that a loan wouldn't put them in debt, say "aye"

You could sell all of Matt's games.
I can't think of a signature.

Although it may sound otherwise, this is actually a serious suggestion. I don't actually make $15 000 a month and never have, so this idea may not go as well as I hope it does. Sell your soul on Ebay :twisted: If a guy can sell the right to change his name for a year, for $37 000.01, then I figure 1 soul is worth probably $50 000. With the right publicity you guys could make international news, and get to make fun of yourselves on The Whatever Thing. Or if you don't want to use Ebay, buy a website like buymysoul.com or something like that and auctoin it there. Just make sure you put a link to it in the LRR Store.

Seriously? I should have thought about that years ago! Also, there is that segment on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno called "Look what we Found on Ebay" I remember one time someone sold a potato chip that looked like a cowboy boot for a couple grand.

Kinda like that website about the guy who found a bunny in the gutter and took care of it, though he said if the internet didn't give him 100k dollars, he would eat the furry little bugger. I don't remember the site, because it all happened like last june or july.

You could sell Bill into manual labor.

Or you could threaten to unleash him upon the world unless people donate money.

What's up with people stealing my ideas. First selling Matt's games, and then selling weird things on ebay. I'm thinking about sueing you for copyright infringement, or somethng and then give the money to LRR.

But yeah, suing people for asinine things is definitely the way to go.

No they didn't.

It's $2000 if you sell them the video, and he didn't because we own it.

But would the LRR crew want to sell any videos? the ones that would be bought are just too special to do so.


Maybe some suggestiongs from the forums could be done and sold?

Yeah, the problem with selling them, is that we then lose the rights to them. Can't keep them on LRR, can't sell them no DVDs...

Cast macros. LRRcat?

The podcasts are usually done Monday evenings. The deadlines for the LRRtrivia tend to be at 7, Victoria time on Mondays for this reason.

Silly thought... have you tried to find a cheaper bus?

Check ebay motors for them.
Like this one:
1992 GMC : RV Cutaway Busfor $200.00 US (so far).

You might find a better deal.

Yes, but the cast is also incredibly lazy.

We're looking actually.

But seriously, if we lived in Philly, you best believe we'd be on that!
