    So I was just thinking about my unique way that I have funded my addiction. My addiction to taco that is. By taco i mean Tacoma.
    A few months ago I knew that a big football game was coming up. UW vs. NE. I knew that since i was from Nebraska i could go back home and those tickets would sell like hot cakes. So i managed to round up a few dozen tickets that i bought off friends and friends of friends. Needless to say that i dropped a little over 3K in just tickets and then offered them to the locals back home. I managed to get 1.4K in pure profit. Lets just say that this little adventure paid for my new 285/75/16 duratracs!

    tint, dents, scratches, two blown speakers and trying to pay her off...
    wow that's impressive.

    my only money making scheme is the lottery. i bought $5 worth of tickets when i turned 18, won 40 bucks. waited till they were about to expire, spent half the cash on more tics, won 20 something bucks, took half that cash bought more, won more. i just sit on tickets until they are about to run out and keep spending half and winning. :notsure:

    and poker. i think im $120ish up from my original $5 investment.

    You just have to be sure of your market before you pursue it. And we had not played the Huskers since 1994.
    So naturally i could not decide who to root for so i was "split down the middle"
