They say that if you really apply yourself and work hard, you can get ahead in life.  Personally, I would rather stumble backwards into money, but my whole "Lottery Retirement" plan doesn't seem to be working out.  Since I have no rich relatives who like me enough to put me in their will, it looks like I only have one option left: Treasure hunting.

Luckily, there's loads of treasure scattered around the world.  In fact, there's rumored to be countless millions in Spanish gold hidden somewhere near Shreveport!  That's "buy-your-own-pirate-ship" money right there!  As impressive as that is, it's nothing compared to the rumored-riches just waiting to be found in Texas!

Before you ask, no - I'm not looking for a "finder's fee" if you strike gold on your treasure hunt.  That being said, I wouldn't say no to a cruise around the Gulf of Mexico on your new superyacht once you cash in.
