Become Rich Selling Virtual Property
Want to become rich? Try playing an MMORPG and selling the "pixels". Apparently one of these guys was making something on order of 6 - 8 million a year selling virtual property. (Although he is said to have "cheated" and not used normal techniques for obtaining the items. i.e. duplicate virutal money through a bug in the game etc etc)
Our society is absolutely bizarre in its priorities.
but the about it your job could be designing that ell phone, you just answered your own question

I read an interview with someone who sold exotic pets for a lot of money in The Sims Online (but in reality was just selling empty pet carriers) and used that money to build a Playboy Mansion.
