I really need help STAT, will give a g-mail account for help

Its 7 at night... 8 degrees outside, I tried starting my car and it won't turn over. It's a 95' Ford Thunderbird, its had some small battery problems (me being stupid and leaving the lights on battery problems) and I drove it all last night for about a 3 to 4 hour drive, the gas tank is full.
I'm a poor college student, with no one to give me a jump, no one to drive me to the auto store, and no money to pay for a cab after filling up the gas tank last night.
Can anyone suggest anything to help me I have to be at work tomarrow morning at 8a.m. if anyone can I'll give them a g-mail account with google.

Time to get out there and hail down a car or neighbour to give you a jump

No easy solution

Of course, wiring in the toaster lead may work, but stand well back, acid burns as you pump 115v into a 12v battery!

Are you talking about reversing the battery cables or something?

If the power level of the battery has dropped low enough not to crank the engine then your in trouble

Is it an auto or manual?

No thanks mate

Already have more alias than I can handle!

See if they can give you a jump, it may be the alt has crapped itself also!

lest you can't get a neighborly jump, I'd unplug the battery and bring it inside for warmth; albeit the juice is gone but it's worth a try;
