Rent Party: WTFDYW: DROxINxTHExWIND: Billy Liar: Really, it doesn't sound much more bizarre than that new policy from HR, where, suddenly, you are forbidden from using that exit door, and now everyone has to carry coded cards with them. And oh yeah, Tiffany in claims is getting married so we need $10.Opt out. It might make you the office asshole, but so be it. You go to work to work, not to make friends. Potlucks, office lunches, little cake ceremonies for birthdays, babies, and people who found new jobs...they can keep it all. The folks at my office don't een ask me to participate anymore./Yes, I am the office assholePretty much the same here.You can opt out and not be the asshole."Oh man, I'd love to do that but I've got <insert fictional familial duty here>"Then they say "Oh, we missed you at that <really boring thing you managed to snake out of>" rather than "That guy is an asshole."
Nightjars: This is just the cover story. In reality, they were injected with mind control devices which forced them to watch JP Patches. It was truly a barbaric experiment.
robohobo: Onkel Buck: Jarylan: So, kids were observed with a bowl of candy in the room, after being told to take one piece. And we're supposed to get bent out of shape over this experiment? Really...As a society we've just become so used to outrage that we can't go a day without it anymore can we?/Seriously, I find it hard to believe that someone would really be up in arms over this.Some people like being happy other people like being pissed. The pissed off people get more attention, and they know thisOn a side note I remember some show that was on during Halloween years ago. This mean old man who owned the deeds or some kind of paperwork to everyone's property would let children into his house on Halloween to look for the deeds so the parents could get off the hook with the old man. Meanwhile he would scare the shiat out of them so they would runaway and not find the deeds he had hidden throughout the house. Does any of this ring a bell with anyone? Was it a Tales from Darkside episode maybe?It was, in fact. The pilot episode, even.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOywuqGlRgU
Farxist Marxist: I was expecting LSD-laced candy.
Ishkur: I've had an idea for awhile of doing a Halloween house where I build a long, dark tunnel in my garage, lined with black walls (garbage bags) and a strobelight in it. At the end of the tunnel is a chair with a bowl of candy, and a sign that says "take one". There is also creepy music playing.So the kids have to wander down the dark creepy tunnel having their senses blasted by the strobe, and their reward is to take a candy. Throughout this, I am spying on them from behind the wall, dressed in a creepy costume. If they try to take more than one candy, I reach out with a boney hand and grab their shoulder and moan "taaaake ooooonnnnneee!" scaring the crap out of them.It'll be a fun night if I ever get off my duff and implement it.

ransack.: If you touch my kid I am suing your garbage-bag tunnel clean inside-out of your garage hole
stonicus: FTFA: The nefarious behavior of the experimenters went unexcused. (Did they have to face a mirror while conducting their illicit surveillance? We'll never know.)How is the surveillance illicit when the kids went into someone else's home? If I have a security camera in my house, and I invite you in, I am not illicitly recording you. How is this "nefarious"? Were they putting poison in the candy? Did they take upskirt pics of the girls? Article is stupid...
