    If you had 5K right now, what's the fastest yet safest way to expand on that 5k, that you've ever had experience with? Thoughts?

    I actually have a umm, "lead" to get into the "big-time" drug-game if I'd like. But nah, I'm talking above-board, no gambling, Business decision. No hooker-ism either, although I am as sexy as a Glass of Watermelon Juice in Aruba.

    That's an oxymoron.

    I've made 40% in 8 months on my mutuals. But between last December and January they were down 20%.

    I once made 800% in six months when Netscape launched. But that was high risk and I could have lost the lot.

    If you want "safest", keep your money somewhere it's guaranteed by FDIC.

    the oxymoron assumes that there are businesses out there which require low start-up capital yet also involve a low risk vs. return. They exist, I'm simply weighing some opposing visions. I don't do sloppy.

    True. The email always starts off with something like...

    "Good day to you. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Attorney Moses Kdogo....."
