TheGreatGazoo: In Memphis a few weeks ago I was hit up for money about 5 feet in front of a 'Don't give money to panhandlers' sign.

Yeah, those signs don't work.  They have these up all over Chicago:

but there are still asshole cyclists everywhere.

Dinjiin: StopLurkListen: That's not saying they don't exist, I just have an empirical correlation to homeless panhandlers and outdoor environments that are compatible with human survival.

Not all panhandlers are homeless.  Some rent rooms or couches.  Others crash at friends' places.  A few live out of their cars.  Some are scammers that dress as homeless and beg as a second job.

I'm soon going to be begging as a second job. I'm getting married.

Ego edo infantia cattus: FTA: " "We're getting like a regular city," Mayor Verne Rupright said before the meeting."

Sounds about as intelligent as the mayor of Derpsvile ought to be.

FTA:  "officials say they're grappling with big-city challenges as the population nears 10,000."

The act of passive panhandling itself is protected.  Some cities got smart and made it an ordinance not to loiter on medians and highway exits (citing safety).  Most around this are that do it are simply doing it for the easy cash.

With all this in mind, though - I wholeheartedly support giving money to such individuals.  Well, the ones at the interstate exits anyway.  The trick is to get money to as many of them as possible in a short amount of time.  And there are many to get.  Just do what I do - listed below.

Once a week:

1)  Find someone to assist with driving/distribution of monies.
2)  Take $20 to the bank.  Ask them for penny rolls.
3)  Have your wheel man (or wheel woman) drive down the highways.
4)  Watch for sign holders at exit ramps.
5)  Take a roll of pennies and aim.  You need to make sure the coins reach their intended desparation.
6)  You can try to yell to the person so that they can try to catch the money but more than likely they will not hear you.
7)  Continue highway until you see the next sign holder.  Repeat from step 5 until you have dispensed 20 rolls of coins.
8)  Switch places with your wheel man and allow them to joy of giving.

Before you balk, understand that if every did the above, the rolls of pennies would start to add up to some serious money.  Heck, if 100 people did this, 40 sign holders would be 50 dollars richer (unless your wheelman decides they wish to donate to the same sign holders)

There is no better feeling then to give back to those less fortunate.  I am sure I have won the heart of a farker (and perhaps a farkette) or two
