    I've been trying to save up for a pandora box ever since i heard of it's existence (about 2 weeks ago) and so far all i've managed to scrape up is $24.42AUD (including the 11.27 in my bank account), if anyone has any spare moneys in their paypal account (even if it's a couple of cents), could you please take pity and let me take it off your hands because i have so little time between shool and homework that if i get a part-time job then i won't be able to do fun things like visit the temp or play my Wii (my dad doesn't let me touch anything electronic after six, not even my ipod [​IMG] )

    so can you please, please give me your spare moneys?

    At least you're honest.....I swear, if I had PayPal, I'd give you few bucks..I believe there will be few tempers who will help with this.....

    Good Luck!!

    Yep. No one's going to pity you and give you money, you have to earn it.

    Pandora's Box

    I think he was referring to a pandora battery for the PSP though.

    Probably the battery.

    Look at my signature. It will help you out (not advertising by the way if anyone thinks that).

    More than 80% of this post is directing people to your referral links. How is that not advertising?

    never tried, but i'm guessing bad

    if you donate then you'll get a super rare awesome-o zelda poster that i drew one time when i was bored in maths with a pen, two highlighters and a pencil (pic coming soon)

    EDIT: here's the pic:

    don't you just love inconsistent 3d effects (light shining from opposite side on tri-force than on text)

    That'll do. Have you got any kids in your class who demand dinner money from other kids? Follow them around while they make their "collections", then when they've collected all their cash just kosh them on the back of the head. Hey presto, instant cash.

    unfortunately in Australia bullying is way less common so i wouldn't have anyone to follow around.

    Go up to random kiddies and tell them that if they give you a buck you'll tell them how to make loads of cash with no effort. Then if they give you a buck tell them to go around doing what you just did.
