It’s okay if you’re not a huge fan of Halloween. Just don’t ruin it for the rest of us. According to a new survey, here are the top six ways people take the fun out of Halloween . . .
- Showing up to a costume party in regular clothes. You can get away with it if it’s a kids’ party. But if it’s a party for adults, either wear a costume or stay home.
- Not answering the door for trick-or-treaters. At least leave your porch light off, so they don’t waste their time.
- Refusing to let your kids eat ANY candy. And pretty much everyone thinks it’s lame to hand out non-candy items to OTHER kids, like little bags of popcorn or pencils.
- Refusing to carve a pumpkin. Or refusing to even buy them, because you think it’s a waste of money.
- Refusing to watch a scary movie. Even if you think they’re lame, this is the one time of year you need to get over it.
- Constantly talking about how much you hate Halloween. Again, it’s fine if it’s not your favorite holiday. Just try not to ruin it for everyone else.
Did you shower this morning, or just walk out the door smelling like a dumpster? Well, “Time” magazine recently did a poll, and found a surprising number of Americans DON’T shower every day.
Only 53% said they shower at least five times a week . . . 25% said three or four times . . . 15% said twice . . . and 8% said they only shower once a week. But apparently that’s not as gross as it sounds.
According to an infectious disease expert at Columbia University, showering more than twice a week doesn’t really help as far as hygiene goes. And it might actually be a BAD thing, because it dries you out and makes you more prone to skin infections.
With that said, there ARE reasons to take more showers than that. Like if you go to the gym . . . work in the garden . . . or you just STINK. But in general, one or two showers a week is fine.
And if you LIKE to shower every day, that’s okay. But don’t scrub your whole body with a loofa, just focus on your armpits and your below-the-belt areas.

Ever been looking at your phone in bed and accidentally dropped it on your FACE? Of course you have. And you almost certainly felt like an idiot when it happened, like everyone else. But at least you’re not alone.
According to a new survey, 60% of us have dropped our phone on our face when we were using it lying down.
And 13% of people have walked into something like a pole or a wall because they were staring down at their phone.
Of course, we also have plenty of dumb injuries that AREN’T caused by our phones . . .
35% have tripped over a pet.
28% have accidentally hammered their fingers instead of a nail.
27% have walked into a glass door.
16% have fallen off a treadmill or exercise ball.
And 15% have tripped on an escalator.
“America’s Funniest Home Videos” posted a video on their YouTube channel this week of a toddler watching an automatic garage door go up . . . and he’s completely BLOWN AWAY by it, like it’s the most impressive thing he’s ever seen.
Kid Is Seriously Impressed
