Guide to How Kids Judge Your Halloween Candy

Mod: I'm trying to help you out here. This is important, and you need to pay attention.


Guide to How Kids Judge Your Halloween Candy (HowToBeADad.com link): Everyone has their varying candy preferences, but sizing up what’s been plopped into the bag is a pretty universal part of Halloween.

However grateful and well-mannered they are, it’s impossible for trick-or-treaters to avoid casting some judgement on the treat-giver-outers they encounter.

You see, parents don’t often let kids eat the entire bag in one sitting, so kids have to prioritize what they’ll eat first (or sneak-eat between houses, under the cover of darkness). Valuations need to be made for some potentially cutthroat trading later. And then there’s the parent tax, though this is usually easy since adults crave a lot of candy kids would rather use as a skipping stone than eat.

There’s a lot of complexity to it all. This is really serious stuff, man! I mean… for kids. (ehem) Heh.

You can’t really go wrong. If kids don’t like Smarties, they can always swap them with a friend that likes to chew on sidewalk chalk. Okay wait, maybe the Partypooper “treats” are a way to definitely go wrong. Just turn off your porch light and lock your door if you hate kids and tooth decay so much.

Have a Happy Halloween! And remember to tell your kids about a hundred times to remember to say “thank you.”

  4. This must be the most epic gaslighting attempt in American history

    When conservative commentator and host Rush Limbaugh opened his radio show Monday, indictments had just been made public in Washington D.C. against President Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Manfort and one of his top lieutenants had been taken into custody on charges of money laundering and tax evasion. Special counsel Robert Mueller had also secured a guilty plea from former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, who admitted to lying to the FBI about contacts with Russia.

    But Limbaugh, one of the most influential voices on the right, worked quickly to reframe the day's developments. "None of this is real," he insisted. When a listener suggested Mueller had "gone rogue" and might be trying to topple Trump, Limbaugh amplified the fear. "This is the coup. If Hillary had been elected, none of this would be happening, other than they still put Trump in jail as a message to the outsider, don't dare try this."

    Much of Monday's conservative coverage asserted that Clinton is actually the one who colluded with Russia when she was secretary of state. Fox News star Sean Hannity told his audience that people investigating Trump are all complicit in an Obama administration decision in 2010 that allowed a Russian company to gain a financial interest in part of America's uranium reserves.

    Fact-checkers with the Washington Post and other outlets have looked at these narratives involving Clinton and found they don't check out. Nor do these claims have anything to do with Monday's indictments or the question of whether Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.

    2. With Limbaugh it's difficult to tell if his neurons are misfiring or they're bathed in oxy.

    3. I saw on the news that the Pope is worried about a nuclear destruction of the planet because of Trump. Yet, he still has people who approve of his actions. The sooner he gets impeached and goes to jail the better.

    4. Limbaugh is basically a mouthpiece for the Putin regime these days. Interesting that those who scream "patriotism!" the loudest are actually this country's worst traitors since Benedict Arnold.

  6. Support For Impeachment At Record High

    PPP’s newest national poll finds a record level of support for impeaching Donald Trump. 49% of voters support impeaching him, to 41% who are opposed to doing so. This marks the 6th month in a row we’ve found a plurality of voters in favor of impeaching Trump, and it’s the closest we’ve found to a majority.

  7. TRICK or TREAT: The investigation was about the election and Russia.
    Nothing about Manafort's real estate dealings over twenty years has to do with the election, Russia or President Trump.
    That's how I size up this sweet deal that Mueller has made after one year of investigations.
