Handing out something other than candy is a good way to get EGGED on Halloween. But if you're going to do it, it doesn't HAVE to be something lame like apples or boxes of raisins.

Here are four other things you can supposedly give out instead. And according to one expert, they're things most kids will use, so they won't be disappointed. Good luck with that . . .

1. Temporary tattoos. You can buy sheets of them, then cut them up and give one or two to each kid.

2. Noisemakers. Which their PARENTS definitely won't appreciate. You can get them in bulk at any party store, or at Walmart.

3. Glow sticks, so they don't get hit by a car. Some parents won't remember to buy them. Even in bulk, they're close to a buck each though.

4. Mini packs of pretzels. They're healthier and cheaper than candy, and almost everyone likes them.

Did somebody say "Wish"?

Paul Reubens announced on last night's episode of The Tonight Show
that a new Pee-Wee Herman film--to be produced by Judd Apatow--is in the works.

"There is going to be one and I was hoping I could make this huge announcement tonight," Reubens said. "It's a week away, I think, from being announced."

He added, "This was all leaked three years ago, so a little bit is known." Reubens also revealed that the project has a director attached, although he couldn't say who it was, and that production is slated to start in February.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie rose to national attention in part because of his aggressive style, with his sharp, in-your-face rebukes to constituents who publicly challenged him posted online by his own staff. But now that he's widely believed to want to run for president in 2016, what may have worked in New Jersey and appealed to people in other parts of the country as being kind of funny to watch, may not make Republican primary voters eager to vote for him. In the latest incident, Christie told a heckler criticizing the speed of recovery on the second anniversary of Superstorm Sandy yesterday (October 29th) to, quote, "Sit down and shut up." Christie's rant at the man lasted for several minutes, and also included him saying, "I'm glad you had your day to show off, but we're the ones who are here to actually do the work. So turn around, get your 15 minutes of fame and maybe take your jacket off, roll up your sleeves and do something for the people of this state." The heckler was a former councilman in the New Jersey Shore town of Asbury Park, who founded a group called Finish the Job that's critical of the pace of rebuilding aid. He told local radio station WCBS of Christie, "You begged the citizens to give you that job; you owe them to answer questions even when it's uncomfortable and inconvenient."

MTV is hoping horror-loving audiences are ready to Scream again, as the network announced yesterday that it will be rebooting Wes Craven's hit film franchise as a TV show.

The 10-episode series, expected to premiere in October 2015, will see Craven returning as an executive producer, along with Harvey and Bob Weinstein.

The new series will introduce a whole new batch of teenagers, but no word yet on what dreadful fates they may face.

To promote the show, MTV tweeted out a phone number yesterday (310-461-4299) that lets fans hear the oh-so-comforting voice of the Ghostface killer from the original films.

An unmanned supply rocket bound for the International Space Station has exploded shortly after its launch from the US state of Virginia.
Antares, built by Orbital Sciences Corp, combusted seconds after leaving the seaside launch pad at Wallops Flight Facility.
The cause of the cargo ship malfunction has yet to be determined.
The initial planned launch of the spacecraft on Monday was delayed due to a yacht in the surrounding danger zone.
The flight was expected to be the third contracted mission with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
The rocket was due to carry nearly 5,000 pounds (2,200kgs) of supplies to six astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
It included experiment kits for the astronauts to conduct tests on blood flow to the human brain and the analysis of meteors.
Officials said there were also some pre-packaged meals and freeze-dried crab cakes on board.
"We will understand what happened, hopefully soon, and we'll get things back on track," said Frank Culbertson, executive vice-president of Orbital Sciences.
"We've all seen this happen in our business before, and we've all seen the teams recover from this, and we will do the same."

Devils Lake senior Melanie Bailey was less than half a mile from the finish line during a high school cross country race in Minnesota last weekend when she noticed the runner ahead of her began limping and crying.

Rather than blowing by her, Bailey stopped and offered to assist her rival, Danielle Lenoue, who goes to Fargo South.

Bailey quickly realized that Lenoue's injury--which turned out to be a torn patella tendon and meniscus--was too serious to simply have her lean on her the rest of the way, so Bailey gave her a piggyback ride to a medical-support area near the finish line.

"I felt so bad for her; I had to do something," said Bailey. "I was just doing the right thing."


Watch their story here...


UPDATE: A simple act of "doing the right thing" has earned the girls a trip to California and an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show!

Last week,
Bailey said she was overwhelmed by all the attnetion, adding she never thought she'd get on the front page of the Devils Lake Journal, let alone have the story featured by national and international media outlets.

WDAY reports Bailey and LaNoue flew to California Monday to record their appearance on "Ellen."

The episode is expected to air later this week, however there aren't any details about the ladies' appearance on the "Ellen" website.

When Tom Burns first watched "Star Wars" with his seven-year-old daughter earlier this month, he didn't expect to be sporting a Princess Leia costume a few weeks later. But that's exactly what happened after his daughter said she wanted to be Han Solo for Halloween.
"When she asked if she could dress up as Han Solo, it seemed as if she was asking permission, and I could tell that part of the hesitation was the gender thing," Burns tells Yahoo Parenting. "I immediately said 'Yes, of course that's ok! The gender thing shouldn't even enter your mind.' So when she said, 'If I'm Han Solo, you should probably be Princess Leia,' I couldn't argue that point." The 37-year-old dad's biggest hesitation? "I'm an almost-40 year old balding dude, how am I going to pull off the hair?"
But he did. In a post on The Good Men Project, where Burns is an editor, he explains he found a Princess Leia hoodie that came with the trademark buns online, and slipped on a Red Cross nurse's skirt from a local store. "If she had asked me to wear the gold bikini, there might have been some pushback," he says. "But anytime she says 'Can I do this?' or 'Can we try this?' I always want to say, within reason, 'Yes, let's try that. What could be the harm?'"
Burns notes that his daughter seemed to appreciate how quickly he agreed to dress as Leia, even though she knew the gender-swap costumes would be considered funny. "She has said things like 'I don't think I'm normal because I like Barbie and I like Batman,' so we've had the 'you like what you like' discussions," Burns says. "I want her to know: girls wearing boys clothes, boys wearing girls clothes, it's just people in clothes and people doing what they want to do."
In his post on The Good Men project, Burns explains that he wants to teach his daughter that "equality goes both ways. If I'm going to tell my daughter that she can do almost anything a man can do (excepting some very specific biological acts), then I also need to show her that a man can do almost anything a woman can do, too."
The lesson wasn't lost on Burns's daughter. "When she saw my costume, she was so excited. She was like, 'We're going to look great together!'" he says. "At the end of the night, she grabbed my hand and said 'Thank you for dressing up.' I think it meant something to her."
So this Friday, Burns and his daughter will put their costumes back on for trick-or-treating, and their Yorkshire terrier, Oliver, will be there too — dressed as Chewbacca.
"I realize that she is not that far away from being a teenager, and there is a time in the not-so-distant future when dressing up in a complimentary costume with dad is not something she'll want to do," Burns says. "She is saying 'I want to spend time with you, let's do something together,' and I would be an idiot not to take advantage of that."

Sexy cop, sexy Snow White and sexy corn have new, topical competition in the skimpy Halloween-wear section: Meet "Sexy Ebola Containment Suit," the most awkward and arguably insensitive of them all.
Online retailer BrandsOnSale, which bills itself as a "Unique Costume Shop and more" unveiled the new ensemble days ago, featuring a short white dress, face shield, breathing mask, safety goggles and blue latex gloves at $59.99 per costume. A pair of bright yellow knee-high rubber boots can be purchased at an additional cost.

Moms Spooked by Too-Sexy Halloween Costume Options
The Internet met the news of the costume with mixed responses.
"I'm in complete and utter disgust," one Twitter user reacted, while another questioned the costume's existence.
"The fact that there's a sexy ebola nurse costume proves the sexy costumes have gone out of control," another wrote.
Others found the gear humorous, writing "Ladies, you've still got time..."
The introduction of "Sexy Ebola Containment Suit" comes on the heels of an Internet hoax in which an older image of a "Sexy Breaking Bad" costume featuring a reconstructed yellow hazmat suit was digitally altered to appear as if it were a "Sexy Ebola Nurse" in 2014.
But will anyone actually buy these outrageous outfits? Yes, if recent trends are any indication.
The National Retail Federation last month predicted that Americans will spend $2.8 billion on Halloween-wear this year, with $1.4 billion of that amount on adult costumes to outfit approximately 75 million grown-ups. Those numbers contribute to a record two-thirds of Americans buying costumes.
And with all of the headgear attached to the "Sexy Ebola Containment Suit," anyone wearing it probably won't be able to read any of the tweets deriding them for bad taste either.

LeBron and Savannah already have two sons, 10-year-old LeBron Jr. and 7-year-old Bryce Maximus.

If you're a dog owner, there's a way to donate to charity without actually spending any money . . . and you don't have to do anything you're not already doing.

There's a new, free app called "Walk for a Dog" that uses the GPS on your phone to track how far you walk your dog. Then it donates a certain amount of money to an animal shelter, depending on how far you walk.

The money comes from sponsorship deals and ads, and you can raise anywhere from 10 to 25 cents per mile.

About 100,000 people have already downloaded it . . . gone on 800,000 walks . . . and raised over $10,000. And the best part is you get to CHOOSE where the money goes. There's an option where you can search for shelters in your area.

To check it out, just go to WoofTrax.com and click "Get the App". Or search for "Walk for a Dog app" online.

Not that we needed another reason to gorge ourselves on chocolate, but here's a healthy reason to do so.

A new study from the Columbia University Medical Center in New York suggests that a natural bioactive compound found in cocoa can reverse age-related memory loss for people in their fifties and sixties.


The findings suggest that the compound, which is also found in tea and some vegetables, increases connectivity and blood flow in a region of the brain critical to memory.

Unfortunately, once the cocoa is stripped down and processed into chocolate, there's only a tiny bit of the compound left over, meaning that ramping up your chocolate intake might not be the healthiest choice.

There have been some really great performances of the Canadian national anthem this week to offer support to the people of Ottawa following the tragic events in Canada's capital city on Wednesday, but the one that took place in Winnipeg before the Jets-Lightning game on Friday night might have been the best of them all.
The entire arena sang "O Canada" without an anthem singer, and, well, it was pretty amazing.

Around Halloween, elaborate haunted houses filled with zombies and witches and scary-things-that-go-bump-in-the-night are everywhere. You'll also see corpses lying in front yards or hanging from trees—we're all fairly used to it by now. But sometimes it's not a prank. Sometimes, something awful really did happen.

While this sort of thing doesn't happen often, it does happen and it usually ends tragically, marring the entire holiday and leaving a family to grieve. Next time you walk past a particularly realistic Halloween display, you might want to take a closer look. Here are five reasons why:

Haunted House Hanging

In 2011, a frightening accident at a haunted house that could have ended tragically, actually ended miraculously well. A Missouri teenager was working as an actor at a haunted house outside St. Louis, when she somehow (she has no memory of the incident) hanged herself in the scary bathroom display she was assigned to work. As she struggled to survive and escape the ropes, people who were going through the haunted house thought it was part of the show. Marks on the wall and her hands show how hard she fought to get freed. Finally, a co-worker was making rounds to check on employees and found her hanging there, unconscious. She was rushed to the hospital where she remained in a coma for three days. She has since recovered from the incident, but suffers from short-term memory loss, dizzy spells and occasional blackouts.

Realistic Balcony Display

A similar event occurred in Los Angeles in October 2009. A man's corpse decomposed on his balcony, in full sight of his neighbors, for days because anyone who saw it thought it was part of a very convincing Halloween display and never called the police. Mostafa Mahmoud Zayed died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound on a Monday, but wasn't actually discovered by police until that Thursday when someone finally called it in. One witness said, "The body was in plain view of the entire apartment complex [and] they all didn't do anything. It's very strange. It did look unreal, to be honest."

Just last year, a mailman in Denver came across what he thought was a very authentic-looking Halloween decoration on someone's front porch, but it turned out to be a dead or dying person. Just a day after Halloween, a man died on his front porch after working a late-night shift. His body lay on the front steps near the mailbox where he collapsed and the first person to come across it was the mailman making deliveries on his route the next morning. He ignored the body, thinking it was part of the residents' Halloween display. Once the Postal Service found out what had happened, they released a statement saying, "We do know the carrier delivered mail to the house that day, and he remembered seeing something he thought was related to Halloween. When the carrier learned that was not the case, he was shocked and extremely upset."

Tragic Tree Hanging

A bit more recently, in October 2005, a Delaware woman committed suicide by hanging herself from a tree. People who saw the body hanging across the street from some houses on a relatively busy street thought it was a Halloween decoration and didn't call the police or 911. The next morning, people went to work and saw the body of the 42-year-old woman, but no one thought anything of it, thinking it was a Halloween prank. Hours later someone finally called the police, who discovered that the body was in fact real.

Haunted House Hit-and-Run

In 1997, a Connecticut woman was hit by a car outside of a haunted house display. Passersby, on their way to partake of the fright and gore at the Nightmare at Floydville Road, thought the woman who lay there dying, bloodied and in pain, was part of the act. One eyewitness even told police after the fact that he saw the woman reach up from her prone position and thought she was one of the haunted house performers. Kimberley Kitrinos eventually died from her injuries and police were able to track down the driver who never realized he had hit a person with his car.

Does your kid scarf down their M&M's the second they get home from trick-or-treating, or do they ration their candy to last for the next several weeks?

Relationship website
Your Tango suggests that the way your kids manage their Halloween candy can offer a glimpse at the way they'll handle money when they're older.

Here are some potential correlations between candy consumption and future money management:

  • *If your child saves their candy, they'll tend to save money well.
  • *If your child eats all of their candy quickly, they might tend to spend money impulsively and burn through cash as soon as their paycheck arrives.
  • *If your child trades their candy, they're likely to feel confident to take risks with their money
  • *If your child creates a plan to ration their candy, you might have a wonderful future budgeter on your hands.
  • *If your kiddos give their candy away, they don't value money as much as they do relationships. Sharing and making others happy is what they value -- the makings of a future philanthropist.

TLC is reassessing the shows future after a report that June is dating a sex offender.
Mama June is seeing someone new, but there's a big problem ... the guy just got out of prison after serving time for molesting one of June's relatives ... TMZ has learned.
The new guy is 53-year-old Mark McDaniel. He was convicted in 2004 for aggravated child molestation. Prosecutors say he molested an 8-year-old child -- forcing oral sex. June was dating McDaniel at the same time he molested the child.
We will not identify the child but it's someone with whom June has contact.
McDaniel served 10 years and was released this past March. He is now a registered sex offender in the state of Georgia.

We're told Honey Boo Boo's mom has been seeing McDaniel for the last few months ... sneaking away from production of the show and meeting up with him. We're told she's also been setting him up by buying him various gifts.

The photo was taken a few weeks ago in a hotel room where June, McDaniel, and other guests were hanging out.

We contacted TLC, which produces "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." The official says, "TLC is not currently in production on HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO. We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series."

We reached out to June ... so far no word back.

Just in time for all that Halloween candy that's about to come into your house, a guy on Reddit has figured out a way to rig a refrigerator's ice dispenser so it gives out candy instead of ice.

Deric Peace shared his appliance hack online on Tuesday. By simply filling his refrigerator's ice tray with small pieces of candy (miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, individual Starburst pieces, etc.), the fridge keeps the candy cold and effortlessly spits it back out into a glass when you press the ice dispenser handle.

Peace even demonstrated the trick in a YouTube video (see below), which has quickly garnered more than 700,000 views.

Following a high-profile leak earlier on Wednesday, Marvel has officially released a high-quality version of the first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer.

According to The Verge, Marvel originally planned to debut the trailer during next Tuesday's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D,
but were forced to improvise when a poor quality version of the clip was released.

Marvel responded by tweeting, "Damnit, Hydra," before posting the official version online.

In addition to showing scenes of the Avengers preparing for battle, the two-minute-long clip introduces the audience to the film's primary villain Ultron, who was created by Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark.

The clip also shows the Hulkbuster Iron Man armor, which will play a major role in a battle between Stark and Mark Ruffalo's Hulk.

Is your car completely safe to drive? The U.S. government has issued an urgent plea urging more than 4.7 million Americans to get the air bags in their cars fixed. A defect in the air bags can cause the inflation mechanisms to rupture, causing metal fragments to fly out when the bags are deployed in crashes. Over the past two years multiple automakers have recalled vehicles due to this issue, the air bags are manufactured by Takata Corp. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration says the warning covers cars made by Toyota, Honda, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, General Motors and Ford. Safety advocates say the problem could affect more than 20 million vehicles in the U.S. (Fox)

A truck driver broke down in tears telling a news station about the thieves who drove off with his semi full of beer from an Orange County truck stop.

The victim's truck and at least one other were swiped Monday from a truck stop on South Orange Blossom Trail.

Van Thomas was trying to live the American dream... After years as a trucker, he bought a semi three weeks ago and made a company of his own.

Thomas was traveling from Texas to Pompano Beach and was on his last stop before a delivery in Orlando when his entire truck and alcohol cargo was stolen.

"I don't mean to cry about it but I'm just trying to do the best I can and make a better life," Thomas told WFTV. "It's just so devastating to me."

Inside the truck was 44,000 pounds of Miller High Life, which comes out to about 9,700 four-packs.

It's not the first time a semi has been stolen in Florida. About 180,000 eggs were stolen earlier this year in Fort Myers. A truck with Hershey chocolate was also stolen in December in Volusia County, and a truck with Slimfast was swiped near downtown Orlando.

Just when Thomas thought he lost everything, he received a phone call telling him the truck and most of the cargo had been located.

"Oh, my God. That's beautiful," he said.

The call came in from detectives that the truck had been found in Miami.

There's no word on whether the robbers knew "The Champagne of Beers" was inside at the time of the theft. Detectives are still trying to figure out who stole the two trucks and if they are part of a bigger ring.

Photos of Renee Zellweger at the Elle Women in Hollywood event made the rounds on Tuesday (October 21st) with people shocked by her drastic new appearance. The Oscar winner looked so different that Gawker had to clarify that their source, Getty Images, had labeled the correct woman as Renee.
Rumors circulated last year that she had gotten work done and was suffering from an eating disorder which she addressed in an interview with UK's Daily Express saying, "When you read reports that you are starving yourself or that you are anorexic it's very unfair and disappointing. It's not very pleasant to read reports which say you've gone too far or this or that." She went on to credit a dedicated gym regimen for her changing appearance.

Sorry, cappuccino potato chips, it looks like you just weren't meant to be.

The results from the second annual "Do Us a Flavor" contest sponsored by Lay's Potato Chips are in, and America has voted for Wasabi Ginger as the winning chip flavor among four finalists, which also included Mango Salsa and Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese.

The creator of the winning flavor, Meneko Spigner McBeth, a nurse from New Jersey, will receive either $1 million or 1 percent of the new chips' first year of sales, whichever figure is larger.

Last year's winning chip flavor, Cheesy Garlic Bread, is still on shelves.

Piotr Naskrecki was taking a nighttime walk in a rainforest in Guyana, when he heard rustling as if something were creeping underfoot. When he turned on his flashlight, he expected to see a small mammal, such as a possum or a rat.
"When I turned on the light, I couldn't quite understand what I was seeing," said Naskrecki, an entomologist and photographer at Harvard University's Museum of Comparative Zoology.
A moment later, he realized he was looking not at a brown, furry mammal, but an enormous, puppy-size spider.

"This is a good place to explain to people that I've had glaucoma for the last 20 years," Bono said. "I have good treatments and I am going to be fine."

Devils Lake senior Melanie Bailey was less than half a mile from the finish line during a high school cross country race in Minnesota last weekend when she noticed the runner ahead of her began limping and crying.

Rather than blowing by her, Bailey stopped and offered to assist her rival, Danielle Lenoue, who goes to Fargo South.

Bailey quickly realized that Lenoue's injury--which turned out to be a torn patella tendon and meniscus--was too serious to simply have her lean on her the rest of the way, so Bailey gave her a piggyback ride to a medical-support area near the finish line.

"I felt so bad for her; I had to do something," said Bailey. "I was just doing the right thing."


Watch their story here...


UPDATE: A simple act of "doing the right thing" has earned the girls a trip to California and an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show!

Last week,
Bailey said she was overwhelmed by all the attnetion, adding she never thought she'd get on the front page of the Devils Lake Journal, let alone have the story featured by national and international media outlets.

WDAY reports Bailey and LaNoue flew to California Monday to record their appearance on "Ellen."

The episode is expected to air later this week, however there aren't any details about the ladies' appearance on the "Ellen" website.

Whether it's the warm sound of the needle on grooves or a boost from its hipster cred, vinyl records sales are still on the upswing.

Figures show that in the U.K. alone, vinyl sales are already approaching one million albums sold in 2014; the last time that happened was 1996.

Vinyl's comeback has been attributed in part to its "cool" factor, and has been helped by several artists, who go out of their way to make vinyl a priority.

An ad campaign featuring a pair of woman's breasts has been blamed for causing 517 accidents in just one day.

Thirty trucks in Moscow, Russia hit the streets to promote the advertising agency. However, after they proved to be too attention-grabbing, police rounded up the vehicles and impounded them until the distracting images were removed.

Since the chaos went down, furious drivers have reportedly started hitting the ad agency with compensation claims.

A spokesperson for Sarafan Advertising Agency says they plan on helping with costs that aren't covered by drivers' insurance policies.

A Farmer Has Found a Way to Grow Pumpkins That Look Just Like Frankenstein's Monster

A farmer in California named Tony Dihera has figured out a way to grow pumpkins in a mold that makes them look just like Frankenstein's monster. They're tall, narrow, and have the monster face molded right into them.

It took him four years and $500,000 to get these pumpkins right.

They're sold out on his website right now but grocery stores around the world are importing them... so if your grocery store has them, expect to pay at least $100 each.

Tony is working on a new mold now for pumpkins that look like a Jolly Roger-type pirate... those will be on sale next Halloween.

So... Instead of carving a pumpkin this year, just let creepy agricultural engineering take care of things for you!

It's tough to ruin Christmas in early October, but this guy found a way to do it. In fact, he may've traumatized two kids so badly that NEXT YEAR'S Christmas will also be ruined already.

21-year-old Brock Quinn Johnson is a student at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis. On Saturday, Minneapolis had its 10th annual ZOMBIE BAR CRAWL, and Brock participated . . . dressed as a zombie Santa Claus.

And he got HAMMERED . . . in fact, he was SO hammered around 9:45 P.M. that he didn't know where he was and wound up wandering into a house a few blocks from his school.

A 16-year-old girl and her 14-year-old brother were home alone . . . and FREAKED OUT at drunk zombie Santa barging into their house. The boy took off running down the street and the girl locked herself in a bedroom and called her parents.

They got home and found Brock passed out in their house in a pool of his own vomit. When the cops got there and woke him up, he was disoriented and didn't know where he was.

He was arrested and charged with trespassing.

(Here's a smiling, sober photo of Brock.)

You might say there's NO amount of money that could get you to give away your family's cat . . . and you would be wrong. For THIS amount of money, you'd HAPPILY give away your cat, and get a new cat . . . a BETTER cat.

Michael and Fran Perceval of Glen Iris, Australia were trying to sell their five-bedroom house. And when a family was looking at it, they saw the Percevals' cat, Tiffany . . . and their daughters fell in love with her.

The Percevals wanted $1.8 million for their house, and the family offered to pay $1.92 million under one condition . . . the Percevals included THE CAT with the house.

The Percevals decided that yes, they would gladly part with their cat for $122,000 . . . and made the deal.

Michael and Fran say they're fine with it, but their 19-year-old son Sam isn't particularly happy. He bought her at a pet shop when she was a kitten four years ago. They're going to give him a $17,500 cut to ease his pain.


The Percevals are planning to adopt a new cat once they move.

A grieving Minnesota family received an unexpected gift during a chance encounter at the mall.

Brianna and Emily Robbins' mom, Maggie, was killed in a car accident earlier this month. A few days later, their dad took them shopping to try to lift their spirits.

But as fate would have it, this would be no ordinary shopping trip.

Brianna quickly recognized Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder, who was shopping with his family. Justin offered the quarterback words of encouragement, and they got a picture together. (See below)

"We posted this to Facebook and we said, 'Look who mommy sent to say hi to us today.' It really cheered up my daughters," Justin said.

But that was just the start.

So while Justin, Brianna and Emily were busy on Facebook, the Ponders were busy too.

"When we walked into the store, the manager came out and he mentioned that they wanted to buy my daughters some clothes that day," Justin said.

After pressing the manager for several minutes, it finally came out that Sam and Christian Ponder wanted to do something nice for Brianna and Emily.

Anything the girls wanted was on their tab.

And while the Ponders weren't looking for recognition, Justin and his family want them to know the difference they made.

"We really, really want to thank the Ponders and what a great man. Samantha is a great person and Christian is a great man," Justin said. "It was a great day, it really helped us out. We really appreciate the Ponders for doing that for us."

In addition to what the Ponders did for his family, Justin wants to thank everyone in Bloomington who has supported them during this very difficult time.

What's your favorite vice? Eating unhealthy foods, smoking, drinking? A new website, Treament4addiction.com has broken down how much time a smoker, alcoholic, or drug addict will lose due to their horrible habit. For example, regularly smoking 20 cigarettes a day will cut ten years off a person's life, while an alcoholic will cut their life short by 23 years and a chronic cocaine user will lose 34 years. All of the data used in the calculations came from official sources, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
How many years are your bad habits shaving off YOUR life? Terrifying graphic reveals how one cigarette cuts 14 minutes, while an alcoholic drink could cost almost 7 hours
New website has calculated the cost of an addiction in years and hours:
Smoking a pack of 20 cigarettes a day cuts ten years off a person's life
Drinking two or more alcoholic drinks every day cuts 23 years off a life
Cocaine addicts lose up to 34 years, with each dose costing 5.6 hours
Methadone users cut their lives by 38 years, and die at an average age of 41
A heroin addiction will cut 42 years off a person's life, killing them at age 38
Lifetime methamphetamine users lose 42 years, each dose costing 11 hours

Picking a Halloween costume is hard. But Brobible has compiled a list of five ironclad rules that, if followed, will at least prevent a major disaster. Here they are:
  1. 1. Something racist: We as a nation are becoming zero-tolerance when it comes to racism. Don't become an example.
  2. 2. Any costume where a dude has his shirt off: While you think it looks hot, it really just shows you lack any imagination and compensate with your fine physique.
  3. 3. Girls who are nurses in real life who dress up as nurses: This is like having a job as a janitor and showing up to a party with a mop and bucket.
  4. 4. Referee: Needless to say, it's been done.
  5. 5. Ray Rice or Ray Rice's girlfriend: Just. Don't. Go. There.

Talk about a pumped-up pumpkin!

The winning gourd at this year's annual Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off near San Francisco tipped the scales at a whopping 2,058 pounds
yesterday --a new record.

The winner, John Hawkley, said he will use the $13,000 in prize money to make repairs on his home, which was damaged during August's devastating, if not fatal, Napa earthquake.

Last year's winner, also from the Napa Valley, weighed a mere 1,985 pounds.

ROSEVILLE, Minn. - What's in a name? Plenty, if it means correctly categorizing the condition of snowy roads in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is changing road condition descriptions on the 511mn.org website and smartphone app.
Old winter road descriptions used by MnDOT were 'good,' 'fair,' 'difficult' and 'hazardous/travel not advised.' The new descriptions are a bit more specific, and include 'normal,' 'partially covered,' 'completely covered,' 'travel not advised' and 'closed.'
The changes were made because the descriptions were subjective and the public didn't always understand or look at the meanings listed on the 511 website, according to Kelly Braunig, 511 coordinator.
"We were getting a fair amount of complaints," she said. "An interpretation of good or fair might be completely different from person to person. We listened to our users and made improvements."
Braunig looked at what other states in the area used as descriptions for winter road conditions and adopted those from Iowa, Minnesota's neighbor to the south.
"We think the public will have a better understanding of the terms now," Braunig said. "It's easier to understand that roads are 'partially covered' rather than 'fair,' or 'completely covered' instead of 'difficult.'"
More details of each road condition description are available at http://hb.511mn.org/RoadConditions.htm.
These changes are part of Governor Dayton's administration-wide effort to implement "Plain Language" when communicating with Minnesotans.

Scientists are working on a pill that might cure your stomach, even if it makes it turn first...

Drug developers at Massachusetts General Hospital have given patients an experimental capsule that contains human feces. The poop has been strained, frozen and centrifuged, and contains natural, healthful bacteria that some patients lack, making them susceptible to other, bad bacteria.

If the pill proves successful, it would be an easier alternative to the going treatment now for people lacking the good gut bacteria: fecal transplants. And the capsules seem to work: 19 of 20 patients essentially ordered by a doctor to eat s**t were cured of their diarrhea and related symptoms,

Prosecutors in Montgomery County, Texas, have filed paperwork to have Adrian Peterson's bail revoked and the running back re-arrested after the Minnesota Vikings running back told a court employee that he had recently smoked marijuana before taking a drug test Wednesday.

According to the filing, Peterson admitted to a court employee that he had "smoked a little weed" before the test.

Peterson has been free on $15,000 bond on a charge of felony child abuse. A trial has tentatively been set to begin Dec. 1.

There likely won't be any action Thursday on the prosecutors' filing as the current judge in the Peterson case is scheduled for a recusal hearing on Friday.

On Wednesday, Peterson's attorney, Rusty Hardin, urged the public to not "rush to judgment" with his client, who is accused of striking his 4-year-old son with a switch.

If he is convicted on the child abuse charge, Peterson could face six months to two years in state prison, though he could be placed on probation as a first-time offender. He also could be subjected to NFL discipline under the league's enhanced domestic violence policy, which can suspend players for up to six weeks.

Peterson has been on the NFL's exempt/commissioner's permission list since Sept. 17, and he is receiving his full $11.75 million salary. Yet he is barred from all team activities until his case is resolved.

According to

"Eventually [the owner] emailed me and said, 'Larry, I'd be willing to sell this for an iPhone 6 or an iPad 32g,'" Else explained. "I laughed and said, 'That sounds kind of interesting to catch people's eye,' and it actually really, really did."

The owner, who currently lives in Austria and has never been to the U.S., bought the home for $41,000 in April 2010.

They chose the films based on a variety of criteria, including lifetime gross, critical acclaim and opinions from staff.

Here's a few on the list they came up with:

Alabama: "Forrest Gump"
(1994)
Colorado: "The Shining" (1980)
Minnesota: "The Mighty Ducks" (1992)
*North Dakota: "Fargo" (1996)
Texas: "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (1974)
Wisconsin: "Dawn of the Dead" (2004)


*Despite the film's title, no scenes were filmed in or near Fargo, North Dakota. Filming locations used during production include: King of Clubs, the bar shown at the beginning of the film where Lundegaard met the kidnappers, was located in Northeast Minneapolis on Central Avenue.

According to a recent study out of Cornell, where you sit in a restaurant can actually affect how much you EAT.

Researchers observed people at 27 different restaurants across the country. Here are four things that can subconsciously make you eat LESS, and eat healthier.

1. Pick a table that's well lit. It's not clear why, but they noticed that if you sit in a dark section of a restaurant, you tend to eat more. Possibly because being in the dark makes you less self-conscious, and you know people can't see you pigging out.

2. Sit close to the door. For whatever reason, people who sat the farthest from the door ate the fewest salads. And they were 73% more likely to order dessert than the average customer.

3. Sit at a table, not a booth. People who sat at booths ordered fattier foods and ate more. Meanwhile, people who sat at high-top tables were more likely to start with a salad and SKIP dessert.

4. Don't sit facing a television. Just like when you're at home, watching TV can cause mindless eating. And the researchers found that the closer someone was to a TV, the more they ate.

With just a month to go until its release, we're learning more details of Pink Floyd's first new album in 20 years, The Endless River. The full album credits recently surfaced online (via Reddit), revealing a few interesting tidbits.
For one, theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking appears on the album track titled "Talkin' Hawkin'". Hawking's electronic voice was previously featured on The Division Bell track "Keep Talking", leading some fans to speculate that "Talkin' Hawkin'" serves as that track's sequel.
Other interesting takeaways: Richard Wright (who passed away in 2008) is listed as writer or co-writer for 12 tracks and David Gilmour sings lead vocals on "Louder Than Words" and backing vocals on three other tracks. In addition, UK-based electronic string quartet Escala is featured on "Louder Than Words". Click here to see the full credits.
The Endless River arrives November 10th via Columbia Records. Below, listen to the latest audio preview of the album.

Talk about obsessed.

A business consultant in Fairfax, Virginia, has been seeing the musical Rock of Ages
for, well, ages. Abe Calimag first saw the musical on Broadway on July 1, 2009, and instantly fell in love.

Since then, he's seen it performed on cruise ships, in six U.S. states and in several countries, spending about $25,000 on his Rock of Ages
habit.

He once took a vacation to Australia, where he saw Rock of Ages
12 times--even though the show doesn't even feature original music, but instead reheats old arena-rock hits like Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'." Says Calimag, "It's the way they took the songs and shaped the story and conveyed the emotion. That's different from anything else I'd seen before."

After some cryptic tweets from co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost late last week, Variety has confirmed that the cult TV series Twin Peaks will return with nine new episodes in 2016 after a 25-year hiatus.

The new episodes will air on Showtime, and will pick up where the show's second and final season abruptly ended (Agent Cooper had seemingly been possessed by the evil spirit "Bob," long after the mystery of who killed Laura Palmer was solved).

"For those followers of the show who felt bereft when the show ended where it did all those years ago are going to like where it goes from here," said Frost, who offered no word on who might be cast in the reboot.

Perhaps Surge was just the beginning.

Due to overwhelming demand, crispy M&M's will be retuning to store shelves throughout the U.S. in January, after a nearly 10-year drought.

The crunchy candies, which are officially called M&M's Crispy, were discontinued in 2005.

Recently, fans of the candy wrote parent company Mars "almost daily" asking to bring them back, according to M&M's Chocolate Candies Senior Director Seth Klugherz.

"When M&M fans talk, we listen," he added. "And consumers have made it clear that M&M's Crispy are so irresistible, we had to bring them back.".

There's even a
Facebook page to bring them back... in 2014, that's when you know things are getting serious!

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has penned an essay for Derek Jeter's new website in which he addresses the domestic violence issues plaguing the NFL and admits he was a bully as a child.

"Many of you readers probably think I have been Mr. Goody Two-Shoes my whole life, but honestly, I was a bully growing up," Wilson writes in an essay titled "Let's Talk About It."

The quarterback goes on to explain that he used to bite people and knock teeth out, but that he was saved by his faith at 14-years-old. "As NFL players, we do not play a gentle game," Wilson continues. "But our hits, our anger, our aggressive behaviors need to be regulated and confined to the field."

Wilson concludes the piece by discussing his Pass the Peace foundation and encouraging ordinary people to be more open about the domestic violence problem in America.

Matthew McConaughey's talent at giving memorable speeches was brought to the football field earlier this week when he gave a pep talk to the Texas Longhorns. Coach Charlie Strong posted a video of the speech to their official YouTube page on Wednesday (October 1st.) Matthew tells the players, "Ask yourself, men, when you look in the mirror tonight, just say, 'Who do I play this game? Why do I do this? Why do I come out to practice? Why am I out here busting my ass in the middle of the heat every day?' Feels good going out on Saturdays when it's the big show, right? Hell yeah, it does. Feels a whole lot better after a W than it does after an L. At the end of the day, every single one of you really only gotta be playing for one person. If everyone's laid their head on their pillow at the end of the night and said, 'I did everything I could today,' it's a lot easier to play for the guy next to you." The Oscar winner also did a Q&A with the team.

BILLINGS, Mont. -- Floyd "Creeky" Creekmore, a former Montana rancher who held the record as the world's oldest performing clown, has died at age 98, his son said Tuesday.
Creekmore died Saturday night in his Billings home of complications from heart disease, Dave Creekmore said.
Creeky turned to rubber noses and orange wigs in the 1980s, after retiring from his previous life ranching and building homes. He joined the Shriners, which holds circus performances to raise money for its hospitals, and he put in thousands of hours of entertaining sick and well children, his son said.
In 2012, Guinness World Records recognized the then-95-year-old Creeky as the world's oldest performing clown. A previous stroke had knocked the juggling out of his act, but he still regularly donned the multicolored jacket and yellow hat to delight the young and old with a magic trick or a gag.
He stopped performing later that year when his wife of 74 years, Betty Creekmore, died. Creeky continued to attended Shriners' clown meetings, but he never put on the makeup again, Dave Creekmore said.
Creeky performed his last trick in July at a friend's 90th birthday party in Lewistown. He told a woman to tie two scarves together and then -- with a leering eye toward his audience -- announced that he would stuff the scarves down the front of her blouse.
Two men grabbed an end of each scarf and pulled as hard as they could. A bra popped out, tied between the scarves, leaving the crowd to roar and the lady to grasp at her blouse.
"You should have seen him. He came alive, with a sparkle in his eye and a dip in his step," Dave Creekmore said.
Creeky was hospitalized last month by an infection in his intestines. He was released from the hospital about a week later, but he never really recovered, his son said.
But to the end, he kept his passion for clowning. "A lot of people go clear through life and are never really passionate about something," Dave Creekmore said. "Boy, he had the passion. He jumped into that with both feet."

Whoever smelt it may have been dealt... a longer life?

In a new University of Chicago survey
of 3,000 men and women, ages 57 to 85, those with the poorest sense of smell were four times more likely to die within the following five years.

"We think loss of the sense of smell is like the canary in the coal mine," lead study author Dr. Jayant M. Pinto said. "It doesn't directly cause death, but it's a harbinger, an early warning that something has gone badly wrong, that damage has been done…Of all human senses, smell is the most undervalued and under-appreciated--until it's gone."

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder has released a cover of John Lennon's "Imagine" on iTunes to benefit Heartbeat.fm, an organization that uses music to foster peace between Israel and Palestine.

Vedder, who's called the tune "the most powerful song ever written," covered the classic song for the first time ever during a solo show in Portugal in July.

The performance came on the heels of controversial comments he made about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during a Pearl Jam concert in London. "There are people out there who are looking for a reason to kill," Vedder said at the time. "They should get the f*** out and mind their own f***ing business."

Pepsi is introducing a new naturally-sweetened soda called Pepsi True that will only be sold on Amazon.com, starting later this month. Pepsi's move comes as the soft drink industry is dealing with nearly a decade of falling sales in the U.S. as people have become more health-conscious. Pepsi True is sweetened with sugar and the plant-based sweetener Stevia, and has 60 calories in a 7.5-ounce can, compared to 100 calories for the same-size can of regular Pepsi. Its target customer is people who want a naturally-sweetened cola with fewer calories.

After the summer of the Ice Bucket Challenge, which raised lots of money and awareness for ALS, a drier -- but saucier -- social media campaign called #FeelingNuts is raising awareness for testicular cancer. Men taking part in the campaign send out a photo of themselves grabbing their crotches as a way to encourage men to regularly check their testicles for any lumps. The #FeelingNuts hashtag was started by the British organization Check One Two, and it's gained momentum as celebrities have joined in, including comedian Ricky Gervais, actor Hugh Jackman & Hair band Steel Panther!

Is this Batman like enough? Or Should it have something more super hero-ish?
McDonald's restaurants in Hong Kong have unveiled the Batman burger! The Dark Knight inspired burger features two beef patties, an egg, onions, and two types of sauce and comes in a Batman themed box.

There's nothing the Justice League can't make appealing, right? If you've seen the new Batman-themed burger being sold at Hong Kong McDonald's restaurant, then you'd know that statement is indeed false.
CNET reports the Batman burger doesn't exactly make your mouth water or bring visions of the caped crusader to mind.
Instead the "Diner Double Beef", as it's being referred to, comes with an unidentified white sauce, two beef patties, a slice of yellow cheese, a fried egg and some kind of steak sauce. There also appears to be, maybe, onions in there somewhere.
The mysterious burger isn't the only Batman-themed item being hawked at Hong Kong McDonald's. The fast food joint has tied the superhero to a side dish called "Squeeze Cheesy Fries," which is made of squeeze-cheese, bacon bits and French fries.
We can't be sure, because we don't now what constitutes squeeze-cheese, but the side dish doesn't sound too, um, scary.
Hong Kong McDonald's is also suggesting guests finish their meals with a cup of green-apple tea.
Perhaps the most Batman-related part of the meal is the packaging: Customers who order the Batman burger all have their meal served in a Batman-head box.
According to CNET, the Batman burger is just the beginning. McDonald's Hong Kong plans for future meals dedicated to the Flash, Superman and Green Lantern.
