Ok at one point or another in life we all have our little 'I need money, fast!!!!' moments. What's the craziest thing you've ever done to put some dollars in your pockets?

Steal & beg.
But it doesn't happen often as I have no need for silly pieces
of metal and ravaged sheets of filthy green paper (though I
do admit the perks of having it).
And I'll return the money, sheesh.
What I'm saying is that while I have money, I don't spend it,
so it stockpiles, and when I do, I have more than enough to
use. Only rarely will I ever borrow money from other people.

Steal, beg, force....
That I would sometimes do.

In 5th grade I actually made Spongebob board games (they took a lot of hard work too!) and got around $50 in all ($5 each). I would call that a great success ;)
I also sold half my lego collection on ebay and got about $500 that same year.
Of course I used the money I earned to buy my collection back so it was an epic waste >.> Oh well I was pretty awesome at Ebay so oh well.
But yeah I was desperate since I pretty much devoted my life at the time to selling those stupid games >:0 Actually I still have several copies so if anyone wants to buy one........
EDIT: for those who can't take a joke I'm not really advertising my board games.

I actually haven't been that desperate for money.
If I wanted something really badly, I tend to forgot about it after. There is nothing that I really wanted before, and if I did, usually I would get it anyway from my parents or my siblings.

When I was five, I got a plastic bucket and wrote "I NEED MONEY FAST PLEASE HELP!"
I put it over my head and ran around a garage sale like that.
I got nothing too XDD;

I cooked some meat and sold it to my lit. class for $5/person. It was totally worth it.

I sold passes to the 4th floor swimming pool at my school. Oh BTW my school only has three floors ;)

Odd jobs. They work all the time for me. They get me a head start when I'm changing jobs, too.

I am currently in a "I need money, fast!" moment.
Currently: Emptying the dishwasher — all I can be bothered to do. At 50p a go it's very good for something so easy and quick.
I can usually just ask my parents or grandparents for some money since I don't often do it, but everyone's broke. D:

Eh, I just ask my grandmother, she always gives me money if I want it. XD
I've never been that desperate for money, anyway.

In Elementary School, I sold home-made bookmarks for a penny each. It was more for fun than money though ;D

I once ate 2 slices of Pizza in 2 minutes for a quick 5 dollars. the stomach-aches followed soon after, but it was worth it =D

I make beaded necklaces and sell them from around $25-$35 USD. The kind of beads are glass and come from Czechoslovakia. They are also part of my Native American culture, so older women are usually a target for them. These necklaces make a nice collection if anyone is a fan of Native American jewelry.

I sell all my old junk on ebay. Its amazing what people would buy. I used to work at a Borders store, so I would sell the promotional posters we got for the movies and CDs, and they made a pretty penny. The Harry Potter promo stuff had the best results.

I lied to my dad, saying my mom stopped giving me an allowance (when actually, she gave me a $10 raise) and he responded by giving me $10 every week. Both have found out but still continue to give me money!
