    give up college you lazy scumbag and go out and work like the rest of us! :D just kidding.

    but seriously further education is pants if your not studying for what you want to do in later life. and when you get that job youll learn it anyway!

    Sell the house and use the money to fund a good old fashioned student life, riotous parties, lost weekends, gap year, repeat years because of lack of revision. Like students used to be. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I've heard there is plenty of money to be made in drug dealing, but there is a chance you could get shot.

    Before this thread degenerates any further (and gets locked) the simple answer to your question is no - there aren't any fast ways to make money.

    Making money takes hard work. I would look at selling the house and putting the money away until your computer game skills come to fruition.

    Running a household takes money and dedication. As a 17 year old student I think you will struggle.

    Why not rent the house out. Assuming you can live somewhere else this has got to be a good way to pay the mortgage.

    How does a 17 year old, acquire a house anyway?

    Too young for a mortgage, aren't you? Or can you get a mortgage at 16?

    Never do that. Its an investment for his future. The price will double every 7-10 years.

    Plus he will need a place to live in one day. Sell the house and the money will be spent on cars, gadgets, clothes, hols etc.... :)

    I know a Nigerian businessman who has a scheme that should make you lots of money. I can send you his details if you like.
