    I don't know if this has been asked, or how many times, or even if I have asked it before...but I don't care...I'm asking anyways...

    What's a good/fast/easy way to make extra money?

    True, but you have to start somewhere. Maybe try doing some pro-bono or really cheap work to build experience and a portfolio.

    It's like complaining about why there can't be more than 24 hours in a day, or why can't summer be all year round.

    Let me introduce you to this thread, it's a start for something and can go along way when people ask you what you have worked on.

    Talk to local print shops and see if you can help them out for a business card, e-cards or graphically designed.

    B, as two users posted above, there are others here looking for graphic designers. Give it a go. See what you can do.

    OK, a word that has 3 letters :D The first is j, the second is o, and the third is b :D

    Another possibility would be the stock market. Albeit 1. it takes money to invest, 2. it's risky, and 3. one could stand to lose as well as gain if one isn't careful playing it... The j-o-b, would be a safer bet ;)

    Well, if we had long enough, that would be possible:

    In fact, that the Earth's rotation has been slowing, that the earthquake/tsunami that hit the Indian ocean sometime back might have resulted in a 3 milisecond speed up in the Earth's rotation might not seem so bizzare, as we know this isn't a constant. There are already forces slowing it down. I've seen estimates suggesting the Earth day 300+ million years ago was anywhere from 18 to 22.6 hours long... That said, we won't be around when the day == 25 hours long :D

    How bout street corner hot chocolate stand? Garage/yard/porch sale? Baby/pet sitting? Dogwalking service? Ebay(though you'd need someone over 18 to set up and let you use an account)? ummm that's the only ideas I can think of
