The greatest examples from history of human ingenuity and invention have come from some kind of need. This need provided the incentive that inspired true creativity. Every Halloween, a new need arises. People cry out, “What are we to do with this abundance of candy we have recently received!?” One man, a Redditor named Deric Peace, has answered the people’s cry.  What he did makes him a hero and a genius. Halloween = costumes + a whole bunch of delicious candy. Sarah_Ackerman As exciting as having a copious amount of Halloween candy is, it is also daunting (some might say “haunting.” Bad [More]
When you think of ghosts and ghouls, there’s one creature you don’t have to be afraid of: Dracula. I mean, everyone knows vampires aren’t real…right?
