1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    true but you need to pay protection and need to hire muscle. also, chances are you are invading someone's territory...you may need to buy guns (or steal them) to protect yourself.

    i say, if you are good looking, work out and develop a model body and go on "dates" with older, rich women. make them fall in love with you and screw (figuratively and literally) them out of money. good luck.

    I don't know about renting out land but gambling and trading (same thing) are extremely difficult to make a lot of money at. A mildly retarded child can make ~40k/year gambling with less than $15k operating capital but trading takes a lot of money to get into and a ton of time to make any money at.

    you guys are all wrong..it's fraud. whether its large scale like mortgage fraud, or even stealing lines of credit from extremely large companies, or it's a maddoff style ponzi, it's fraud boys. (relatively) low-risk, and high yield

    The only plaintiff's attorney I've ever met had to leave the deposition early because his pilot and jet were waiting on him. I'd say that's a pretty good sign.

    None of the partners at my law firm own jets...

    If you do not have or do not desire to develop marketable skills, then you are clearly a budding politician. Anything else, including crime, would take some amount of skill and work.

    I woulld bet he does not own the jet. Probably rents a jet/crew by the hour. Fractional ownership is popular for companies for there executives and most likely the case.

    The answer is clearly "management consultant". There is essentially no risk involved, and you essentially get paid big dollars to give people advice that you figuratively pulled out your ass, or is obvious.

    +1 but the road to get a gig is obnoxious and high pressure.

    Well, you could sell your organs. Then invest the money in the stock market.

    I would suggest having very rich, guilt-ridden parents. If you are starting from scratch, even the most dishonorable professions will require a fair amount of effort to make top dollar.
