    I thought this was novel enough, but I had no luck. Maybe it's the location? Entrance to the Santa Monica pier. There was a dude with a need money for weed sign who got some money. I got nothing.

    'smile' sign with a positive go-lucky persona. always works best fpr me. even a 'beer?' sign..just appear happy and like you love life an be positive. so much better than the TBH signs.

    People dpn't wanna hear your life story in my experience. Short and to the point, with short words works best for me personally.

    This week I'm going to go to "Silicon Beach" (Google, Snapchat, etc. in Venice) with "0x4E 0x45 0x45 0x44 0x20 0x24," which is "NEED $" in ASCII. I'll also try "JAVA SUCKS."
