What? No Poltergeist??!
According to researchers at the University of Westminster, watching horror movies burns calories.  That's because getting scared causes your heart rate to increase.           
 
You burn a third more calories than normal when you watch something scary . . . which is the equivalent of a candy bar.  Here are the 10 movies that burn the MOST calories:
 
 
#1.)  "The Shining":  184 calories.
 
#2.)  "Jaws":  161 calories.
 
#3.)  "The Exorcist":  158 calories.
 
#4.)  "Alien":  152 calories.
 
#5.)  "Saw":  133 calories.
 
#6.)  "A Nightmare on Elm Street":  118 calories.
 
#7.)  "Paranormal Activity":  111 calories.
 
#8.)  "The Blair Witch Project":  107 calories.
 
#9.)  "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre":  105 calories.
 
#10.)  "[Rec]":  It's a Spanish horror movie.  101 calories.
 
 
What!  No Poltergeist?  It's stll the scariest movie in my book.

Wish I Had This Cooking Skill
For all the cooking shows I have watched, I still don't think I'm anywhere near a pro. 

After seeing this, I think I could fake it a little better.

There's the standard old hot dog trick, but...

Halloween Costumes? Don't Go Here
If you're looking to buy a Halloween costume this year, you apprently need to  AVOID THESE.  Some of the worst ones seen are a sexy Oscar the Grouch . . . a 'big foot' costume that's not the half-man, half-ape but literally a large foot . . . a costume of the Sun that's just a yellow felt circle with a few points . . . and a woman's full-body jumpsuit that has "Halloween" printed on it for no apparent reason.

 
#5.)  Cry Baby Adult Costume.  This costume features an oversized tan polyester bodysuit with a large white diaper and a bib that says "Cry Baby."  Rather hideous.
 
 
#4.)  Sexy Oscar the Grouch.  Last year "Sesame Street" released a line of sexier adult costumes.  Some, like Elmo and Cookie Monster, might be okay.  But putting a garbage can lid on your head and wearing a skirt with a garbage can print is not.
 
 
#3.)  Big Foot.  This isn't Bigfoot, the half-man, half-ape.  This is a costume where you're wearing a giant foot.  With hairy toes.  And it costs $50.
 
 
#2.)  The Sun.  This costume is just lazy.  Basically it's a big yellow felt circle with a few points sticking out.  And it costs $40.
 
 
#1.)  A Woman's Jumpsuit That Says "Halloween."  It's not even a costume.  It's a cheap-looking full-body jumpsuit that inexplicably has the word "Halloween" printed near the left shoulder.
