How can I make money this summer?

I have a job lined up already, but it is the same place I've worked at for the last two summers, and it's getting really boring.

I call upon the creative minds of Foo. How can I make some money this summer besides what I make at my normal job?

Preferably nothing illegal...

Sell maps to all the homes of the stars in the UP. You can probably get $1.00 each and just hand out blank sheets of paper.

In your area, with the kind of economic conditions that are out there, merely being employed is the biggest thing.

But if you must switch jobs, the question you should ask yourself is not what can you do, but rather what do you want to do, and how can you get into it.

I know, I should be thankful to atleast have a job. I should be able to negotiate a good raise with my managers, as they seem unwilling to hire somebody new.

Fill gelatin capsules (e.g. from Endurolytes) with crushed Benadryl tabs and sell them as "downers" to 15 year olds for $10 each.

Sell blackmarket contraceptives at a college campus near you.

When that falls through, open a daycare.
