} Without putting ANY effort in? I don't know if this is really
} possible; after all, you've already went to the effort of asking
} The Oracle.
} Having acknowledged that you must expend some effort, I think
} what you really want to know is how to make those millions with *as
} little effort as possible.*
} The easiest method involves the principle of compound interest.
} Simply take any amount of money, put it in an interest-bearing account
} with a guaranteed minimum interest rate (read the fine print), and
} allow the interest to accrue until the balance reaches millions upon
} millions of dollars. A key component of this is not to die in the
} meantime; this scheme could take millenia to achieve fruition.
} A scheme that involves more effort but takes less time
} consists of telephone or mail fraud. I should warn you, however,
} that this is illegal, quite easily traceable, and will damn your
} immortal soul to hell.
} A scheme that involves even more effort, but is still legal
} (unfortunately), is to be a professional spammer. This will take
} advantage of your free internet connection, but will likely involve
} the purchase of some extra equipment. I should warn you, however,
} that although this is legal and almost untraceable, it will damn your
} immortal soul to hell (if I have any say in the matter).
} There are many other schemes I could list out (really, there
} are millions of ways of making money), but if you're looking to put in
} as little effort as possible but avoid too much karmic retribution,
} I'd recommend becoming a charismatic cult leader, and skimming from
} the incomes of your followers. Scientology is an excellent example
} of a very successful cult; Christianity pales in comparison, given
} Christianity's extensive governmental support and 2-*millenium* head
} start. Personally, I'd recommend a Charles Manson "Family"-style cult
} (except without the murder), considering how many lonely, disconnected
} people there are in our modern, atomized society. If you make "free
} love" one of your tenets (unlike Heaven's Gate), you could enjoy some
} other fringe benefits, as well. Once your cult gets big enough,
} you could then convince your "flock" that you all need a better
} location for your cult compound (such as a nice Caribbean island),
} and they'll work harder and donate more in order to achieve this goal.
} In payment for your answer, The Oracle demands you quit
} freeloading, get off your lazy ass and find a damn job already.
} Like I said, there are millions of ways of making money.
