Seriously, I can't get my kids to clean up after themselves or take out the garbage.  Here's a kid that makes $1500 a day eating.  But there is a catch

There's a 14-year-old kid in South Korea who goes by the name B.J. PATOO, and he makes up to $1,500 a night just by eating at his computer. Yep..that's all he does

There's a phenomenon in South Korea called "mukbang", which literally translates as, "eating broadcast".   It's pretty simple:  You just sit in front of your webcam and chat with people while eating large quantities of food, sometimes very LOUDLY.

Patoo is one of the most popular mukbangers, which is why he makes so much.  It all comes from fans, who "gift" him things called "Star Balloons" that cost about ten cents each.  And most of his fans are teenagers.

A lot of them say they watch because it's entertaining, while other   r people say it helps them satisfy their cravings without actually eating

That is so weird, because when was the last time you turned on the Food Network, and then DIDN'T want to eat everything in your fridge?

Anyway, the "Business Insider" says this kid made about 250 thousand dollars in 2013

Wow, I really picked the wrong business.
