Go Dumpster Diving where there aren't any "No Trespassing" signs. You can find electronics, toys, useable merchandise for nothing. Then, have a yardsale and sell the freebies for cash.

Go to grad school. Choose a subject DARPA likes.

This has the added benefit of eventually giving you a PhD, possibly making you unemployable forever! Don't worry, it also lets you continue this strategy; you can be a post-doc forever.

If you're lucky, you can even become a tenured professor!

Actually, the fastest way to have more money without working is to cut out spending on inessentials. Pick your priorities. Reduce your outlay by buck a day and you've got $365 by year's end... plus a bit of interest, if you're putting it in a bank,.

Play an instrument on the corner with a tip jar.

If you're good they'll reward you.  If you're bad they'll feel sorry for you and give you something just to go away.

Yeah, I don't like the middle part, where you're not bad enough to get paid to go away and not good enough to get paid to stay.

Cue the Marx Brothers routine....

Win the lottery.

Oh, you mean for real?  Get a job!  Or are you too young to be hired?

Start your own business.  Over a decade ago I was in a slump about receiving an unfair pay cut and started my own consultancy in computer support with local businesses and home users.
And no matter where you live, home users will cycle through computer repairers until they find one they love.  This helped me through a tough spot for 2 years before finally selling my business to a local competitor. ;)

Now is the right time to start sowing tomato seeds. In a few weeks you'll be able to plant squashes, marrows and courgettes. You could buy a pack of tomato seeds, aubergine, courgette and squash seeds. $10 for all. Sow them in trays, pot them up when they're bigger and then sell them in your neighbourhood.

Create a job. The idea of busking with an instrument is a good one, if you're in an area which has enough of a population to support it and if you have any skill at all (it's also a great excuse to practice in public). Gather and redeem recyclables (though in my area the elderly folks doing this seem to already be scavenging everything possible.)  Contact a temp agency, if you have any useful skills (or even if you don't; they may be able to place you as a security guard or something else which doesn't require much more than that you be trustworthy and conscious.)

Money is value. To get value, you have to create and give value to someone else.

Steal.

Sell drugs.

Beg...

As Raving suggests:  Sell body parts/"consumables".

*I do not recommend or condone these activities --  but they have the highest chance of success.

You are asking for something 'for' nothing.  Like the laws of thermodynamics  and newton's laws - you simply aren't going to poof money into existence without effort.

Yes you could win the lottery, but remember the lottery is a tax on the foolish.  Play it long enough and you'll lose 2x as much as you win.  It's okay if you don't believe me, because I don't care :-)
