Virtual Currency Trading 

These people (http://www.gamingopenmarket.com/) have set up a currency trading market where you can trade money you've "earned" playing massively multiplayer online roleplaying games.

They have exchange rates for the various worlds (so far, just the Sims and Ultima Online, as well as There and SecondLife), and you can even get real-world $ for your online wealth (probably through PayPal). More games are coming (Dark Age of Camelot, EverQuest, Star Wars Galaxies), and they're also promising to expand into item and character auctions (sell yourself!). They aren't the even first site to do this, but you can get the idea from the above link.

At last - now you can spend all of your time online playing games, and when the [wife/girlfriend/parents/??] complain that you're wasting your time, you can point out you're actually making real money!
