    Rentboys. Either become one or "acquire" some.

    Get a job.
    Problem solved.

    EDIT: Fine i'll also post a kid-friendly method.
    Bot.
    Bot games, sell gold, sell items. If you bot runescape, you can easily sell gold and accounts to make money for paid bots, then set up a network and you could easily make a ton of cash. The only requirement is a good ability to buy and sell in an underground market. It's a pretty sketchy business.

    So you have 15. You need 7. I don't see the problem?

    People around my neighborhood stand outside WalMart, Radioshack, and Gamestop selling pirated goods and what not. Its blatantly pirated too, no one seems to do anything about it. I would only sell to a secret circle, but you COULD sell movies, games, even cheap flashcards for the NDS (as much as I hate them). Hell, I've even been able to make some cash modding wiis/psps and jailbreaking iDevices.

    ask friends for some help? 7 really isn't much especially if you can ask for a couple of bucks from 3 people, including family

    Pirate minecraft, play on servers that don't require minecraft registration (for example... tempcraft)

    Or, well, survey sites. Back in 8th grade I made about $500 off of them total. This in particular one pays out to paypal:

    Hardmodding is a good way to make money. Softmodding for money is low. Your scamming people.

    If someone can't do it themselves, and even looks at tutorials I put up to help people but still can't do it. Is it low? I don't think so.

    To each his own. I personally would not charge people to softmod a Wii, NDS, PSP etc. because it is super easy and they could easily do it themselves.

    Example of one of my tutorials:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    If they can't do it after that, $15 and I'll go down there and do it for them. [​IMG]

    yeah, for you, and me, and a lot of other people, but some people really just can't do stuff like this. Kinda like old people but not actually old.
    That being said, I probably still wouldn't charge somebody unless I didn't like them or something


    OT: collect cans if you live somewhere that will give you money for them

    Oh yeah, I noticed that, but then I forgot when I actually replied, haha.

    I would do what somebody said before and do survey sites
