This puzzle involves coming up with a sentence using any of following:

  • characters: ABCDEF (+5 points)
  • numbers: 0123456789 (+3 points)
  • numbers disguised as letters: OILSTRG (0,1,1,5,7,12,6) (+3 points)
  • rebuses: "d" as "the", "o" as "oh", "2" as "-to/-too/to-", "4" as "for-/-for", "8" as "-ate/ate", (+10 points)

A sentence encompassing the golden rule earns an extra 100 points (but don't try too hard). Bonus points can also be earned for an intelligent sentence or phrase with good advice regarding:

  • 50 points: money, work, jobs (e.g. "money is the root of all evil", but in hex)
  • 40 points: "life", life goals or life purpose, spirituality
  • 30 points: effort, practice
  • 20 points: people, friends, romance
  • 10 points: education

X-factor: Up to 100 points for something that is unexpected, novel, funny, or entertaining! Existing mantras converted to hex could also be worth a lot!

Upvotes: Each upvote is worth 110 points!

The maximum length for a suggestion is 35 characters. Only the highest scoring suggestion in an answer will count. Any answers derived from other user's answers (even not the second user's highest scoring ones) will be disqualified.

This question will stay open for 7 to 10 days, and I will be placing a bounty on it as well (when eligible).

Some more background, from Wikipedia:

Hexspeak, like leetspeak, is a novelty form of variant English spelling using the hexadecimal digits. ... Hexadecimal notation represents numbers using the 16 digits 0123456789ABCDEF. Using only the letters ABCDEF it is possible to spell several words... Further words can be made by treating some of the decimal numbers as letters - the digit "0" can represent the letter "O", and "1" can represent the letters "I" or "L". Less commonly, "5" can represent "S", "7" represent "T", "12" represent "R" and "6" or "9" can represent "G" or "g", respectively. Numbers such as 2, 4 or 8 can be used in a manner similar to leet or rebuses; e.g. the word "defecate" can be expressed either as DEFECA7E or DEFEC8.

Here's a list of over 2000 hex words that will help (no rebuses though), though there are other lists on the net with more! Remember "d" is "the"! https://www.litscape.com/word_tools/contains_only.php

    $\begingroup$ Is there a specific piece of advice you are looking for? Because otherwise, this is way too broad. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 7, 2018 at 22:28
  • $\begingroup$ IMHO This isn't “opinion-based”, but it is too broad: there are too many possible answers given the conditions. To @nickcarraway — if you want to begin a catalogue of these phrases, then I suggest you post it somewhere better suited to such things. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 12, 2018 at 1:06

    $\begingroup$ @nickcarraway A point system is a good objective way to select a "best" answer (though here the bonus categories—money, life, romance, etc.—are perhaps too subjective). But with nothing to limit submission length, answers can be made arbitrarily longer for increased score by expressing a simple idea in excess verbosity under the guise of getting the best "translation" into permissible words. There'd be no end to that. Also, the subject matter is way too unconfined. This would end up being a collection of leetspeek adages, and collection questions are out of scope on pretty much every SE site. $\endgroup$

How about

EA7 600D F00D. 11FE 15 A F1E1D 0F 612EA7 1DEA5 (Eat good food. Life is a field of great ideas)

    $\begingroup$ Wow!!! Way better than I could've done! $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 7, 2018 at 22:52

Lack of an "N" for "not" is limiting, so these are a little tortured.

D0 2 0DE125 A5 0DE125 D0 2 DEE (Do to others as others do to thee - do unto others as you would have them do unto you)

And another

BAD 2 EA7 D EE110 1CE (Bad to eat the yellow ice - don't eat the yellow snow)

And another

11FE 15 11CE A B0C5 0F C0C0A 712EA75 (Life is like a box of cocoa treats - life is like a box of chocolates)

And another

1EAF D EA127 BE77E12 (Leaf the Earth better - leave the world a better place for your having been in it)

Courtesy of Wil Wheaton

BAD 2 BE A D1C (Bad to be a dick - don't be a dick)

And finally, one that works as is

B 600D (be good) or D0 600D (do good)

PS to add a 50 pointer:

612EED 15 600D (Greed is good).
