Sometimes you just have to be the fastest to profit from a trend. One young entrepreneur grossed $120k in two days selling t-shirts celebrating the assassination of Osama Bin Laden:

Maurice Harary, 23, set up his T-shirt website as soon as he heard that the former Al Qaeda leader had been shot by U.S. Navy Seals on Sunday night.
The New Yorker raced home to his apartment to work on building the website on Sunday night and it was ready to go live at 3.30am on Monday morning.

By Tuesday evening he had already sold more than 10,000 items at $12 a time.
