Sometimes it's fun to ask strangers to do random things just to see if they will do it. The people you most expect to be daring often get shy, and the least likely subjects are the first to volunteer.

At the Silver Lake Jubilee last weekend a booth was selling stick-on moustaches for $1. First I put one on my self, then walked around with a handful of them to see who was game. It's also interesting to note that people are much more willing to act silly and ham it up when they have props.

So here's to you, oh brave souls of Silver Lake.
