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.

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 this

On 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.

No, you weren't supposed to get outraged, but you seem to have done so anyway. Did you read the article?

South of Seattle at the time (Federal Way), but I certainly would never have gone into a house unless I knew the person.

Ah yes, the four of us were dressed as a mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, and I think the sullen kid was supposed to be somebody's libido or something. I wonder what ever happened to him.

The comments on TFa were far more interesting than the article itself.

/only letting kids trick or treat at people you actually know's houses is pretty lame
//had an ever widening territory as i grew up
///who the hell even knows their neighbours anymore?
