Parents Admit They Are Halloween Candy Thieves
Eighty-six percent of parents shamelessly steal candy from their children’s Halloween haul, new research reveals. A study examining America’s Halloween candy-eating habits found many sneaky parents won’t hesitate to steal treats from their own child when their little one isn’t looking or has gone to bed. Sweet-toothed moms and dads don’t just stop at one or two pieces either. The average candy-snatching parent devours a fourth of their child’s total Halloween haul, according to the results. And parents may not be dressing up to go trick-or-treating, but 44 percent will eat more candy than their children this Halloween. The survey of 2,000 American adults (1,000 parents and 1,000 non-parents), commissioned by Crest and conducted by OnePoll, revealed adults’ spending and consuming habits when it comes to Halloween candy.

Restaurant Creates Menu of Death Row Inmates Last Meals
I’m wondering if you thought that this was interesting or insensitive: A pop-up restaurant in Tokyo, Japan launched a menu of morbid meals for a limited time. Ningen Restaurant, meaning “human restaurant,” opened in the city’s red light district this month, serving last meals requested by famous death row inmates like double-murderer Gary Mark Gilmore, who requested a hamburger, baked potato, hard-boiled egg and three Jack Daniels shots; “Black Widow” Judy Buonoano, who dined on asparagus, broccoli, tomatoes and strawberries; and a rendition of killer clown John Wayne Gacy’s bucket of KFC, French fries, pound of strawberries and fried shrimp – among others.
- Would you be a little disgusted eating the same last meal as a serial killer or professional killer?
This State Has the Highest Share of Kids of Trick-or-Treating Age
Better get the candy ready, Utah.
Utah has the largest share of children of trick-or-treating age this Halloween. The U.S. Census Bureau puts that age range from 5 to 14 years old.
About 1 in 6 Utah residents fall into that age range, the highest of any state, according to some Associated Press numbers crunching.
In pure volume, California has the most potential trick-or-treaters — 5 million kids between ages 5 and 14.
The census estimates potentially 41 million trick-or-treaters across the nation and about 120 million homes from which to score candy.
The chances of getting toilet-papered for not having candy are lowest in the District of Columbia, where only 1 in 11 residents are trick-or-treat age.

Woman Who Had Sex With 20 Ghosts is Now Engaged to a Spirit
A British woman who claimed she has slept with at least 20 ghosts says she’s now engaged to a poltergeist.
In December, Amethyst Realm told British TV show “ITV This Morning” that she cheated on her fiancé with a ghost, and has since gone on to have supernatural affairs with at least 20 paranormal beings.
Well, now she says she’s found true love with an apparition.
Realm said the ghost asked her to get married during a trip to celebrate their nine-month relationship at England’s Wookey Hole caves, according to The Sun.
The 30-year-old said she met her spooky match, who doesn’t have a name, during a work trip to Australia in February.
“I’d not had a phantom fling for a while and as I was away on business, starting a new relationship was the last thing on my mind,” the Bristol-based spiritual counselor told The Sun. “Then one day, while I was walking through the bush, enjoying nature, I suddenly felt this incredible energy. A new lover had arrived.”
The bride-to-be added that this engagement is much more satisfying than her previous living fiancé.
“Sometimes I get the feeling that I’m being moved,” she said. “Orgasms I have with my spirit lovers have been way more satisfying than any I’ve had with ordinary men.”
