Just as you were about to call mom and dad to help with next month's rent again, this gold mine came along.

There's supposedly a new social experiment happening on Twitter where an anonymous person hides $100 bills around San Francisco and tweets photos with some hints about where you might find the coveted cash.

Once the money is found, the lucky person is supposed to tweet to @HiddenCash with a photo of the money and share it.

Here's an example:

The Bold Italic reports this morning that the very generous benefactor is simply trying to give those you who can't afford pretty much anything in San Francisco a little boost:

I've made millions of dollars the last few years, more than I ever imagined, and yet many friends of mine, and people who work for me, cannot afford to buy a modest home in the Bay Area," they wrote. "This has caused me quite a bit of reflection. I am determined to give away some of the money I make, and in addition to charity, to do it in fun, creative ways like this.

Nice. We look forward to seeing where this money trail leads San Francisco.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
