Since all these ideas are already taken and most of us do not have a clue how to get started nor the money to get started this article is pretty much a waste of time and really just to flaunt how a lucky few managed to get rich.

You forgot:

Steal a nuke and blackmail England.
Get gold out of seawater.
Get freshwater out of seawater.
Recycle crap into fuel.
Turn barf into jewelry.
Find a genie in a bottle.

"Ten new ways to get rich" is mistitled. Should say "Ten successful start-up entrepreneurs". There's nothing new about it. Watch "Shark Tank"

Whoa, hold on a hot second!  You mean starting your own business and growing it into an empire is a "new" way to get rich!?  AMAZING!!!

The best idea is:

Do not waste valuable time reading MSN BS articles

Article title was misleading.  Not sure how any of these are new or even ways to make money to a newcomer.

All of these gimmicks are a bunch of junk that nobody needs and can get elsewhere for one-tenth the price. Many people are very gullible and buy into the advertising hype due to their insecurities. They foolishly believe that buying and showing off certain overpriced and expensive products with popular logos will make them appear to be "somebody".

Why don't we all just become pro baseball payers. That's how stupid this article is.

Am I the only one who noticed that almost all of the "ideas" involve little more than "branding" an existing product and selling it for several times its "un-branded" price

Tell your idea to your boss and he can steal it from you (oops that happened to my son)

Those of you that have made it big, enjoy it now. All you will get in the end is a nicer casket in a cemetery plot with a view, or a gold plated urn. Maybe you can have your own private mausoleum. But you'll be just as dead as the rest of us commoners.

Thanks for telling us how other people got rich!! Maybe if I had money to buy a Kraft yogurt company I would get rich also!

Have to love #8. If my dad bought a company, I would probably be "rich' too.

Pathetic.  This is what humanity values?

Why even try to get rich? The demowits and Obama will just demonize you and then tax you out of it.

I decided not to listen to the negative posters here and check out the ideas anyway. Im glad I did, as i learned some interesting things. Two of these people expanded on their fathers business's. It is always a good idea to check out how other people made it  in life. Each one brings a valuable lesson.

It seems like there is such a backlash against the rich. Like they are holding people down. Stop complaining and get to work. Stop waiting for handouts from others or the government. I am not rich by any stretch of the means, but I try to learn from those that have already achieved.
