How to make 1 million dollars before your balls drop

Hey, you! Yea, you! Do want to make money quick? Do you want women, power and fast cars? Do you want to be snorting cocaine off a hooker within the next six weeks?

Arjun Mehta is fourteen-years-old, and his PlaySpan company raised $16.8 million in venture capital … which he now gives to his father.

Victor M. ‘Lil Poison’ De Leon III has a stupid name, but he’s an eleven-year-old pro gamer who is in the Guinness Book of Records and has been on 60 Minutes. He’s got a hairless acorn winkie, but he probably gets more women in a week than you ever have. Lim Ding Wen made an iPhone App that reached 500,000 downloads, beating his father in a competition to see whose App could be more successful. He’s only nine-years-old. If I was the father of that boy, I’d be simultaneously proud of him and ashamed of myself.

The article is worth checking out, just to see how long you can stand to read it before you’re consumed with envy over these little snot-nosed brats and their huge wads of cash. Also, because it features professional Halo player Tom Taylor, who is one third of the team Str8 Rippin. We only mention that because it sounds like a gay porn site. BROKE STRAIGHT BOYS GET RIPPED APART … or something.
