Meanwhile, In San Francisco...

...some rich dude is entertaining himself making the proles dance:

White envelopes containing sums of $100 bills are being left all over San Francisco by an anonymous real estate magnate who is sending out tweets to alert treasure hunters where they can find the hidden cash.

Concerns over San Francisco’s widening wealth gap has prompted the anonymous Samaritan to drop “Hidden Cash” – the name of the experimental project -- throughout various parts of the city in order to give back to the community that has helped make him so wealthy.

The anonymous donor, according to the Huffington Post, tweets out clues as to where the next stash of cash can be found from his Twitter handle @HiddenCash after each dropoff. In what he deems to be a social experiment, the donor plans to expand his largess to Oakland and San Jose. The drops reportedly have “no end in sight” and will continue to occur once or twice a week.


It'll stop being funny when some Usual Suspect™ in Oakland gets shot fighting over one of the $100 bills. Watch and see.

Sure beats standard geocaching...

@ProudHillbilly: I do something similar when I drop bottle messages into the sea: I include a finder's reward of $5 or $10 to encourage the finder to send me the travel data from the bottle.
