Last year it was killer clowns, this year it’s IT clowns… Every year as Halloween approaches people start talking about how Halloween is getting too scary, particularly for young kids. So here are some suggestions for making Halloween less scary (for young kids).
#5. Clowns must only call you into the sewer if there really is cool stuff down there.
#4. All ghosts must wear a sign stating whether they are real or pretend ghosts.
#3. ‘Bobbing for apples’ will replaced with ‘selecting apple slices from a shallow bowl of bottled water’.
#2. All fake blood must be green so it doesn’t look real (unless it’s from an alien creature..).
#1. Remember the true spirit of Halloween is not in scaring children, it’s in being up to your armpits in Reese’s peanut butter cups!!
New York-Presbyterian Hospital released a CPR playlist on their website to help people maintain rhythm while performing CPR.

IMPOSSIBLE QUESTION: Not everyone has one of these, but if you do, it’s worth about $23,000 CDN.
The 9,300 magnets inside the 27 km (approx. 17 miles) circumference of the Large Hadron Collider are designed to be refrigerated for operational use. 10,080 tonnes of liquid nitrogen are needed to cool them down to just -193.2 C, before they are filled with nearly 60 tonnes of liquid helium, which cools them further to just -271.3 C.
IMPOSSIBLE QUESTION: Women have one more of these than men.
IMPOSSIBLE QUESTION: Pairs of jeans (on average women own 7 pairs and men 6 pairs).

Thirty-four percent of us have napped in the last 24 hours.
A survey of 1,488 adults revealed that, men are more likely to nap than women. Napping for just 10 minutes can enhance your alertness, mood, and mental performance.
Here are Mike’s top five things you should know about napping.
#5. If it’s under an hour it’s a nap, over an hour it’s sleep.
#4. If you awake from one of your “naps” and you’re no longer employed – maybe it wasn’t technically a “nap” – more a “passing out”.
#3. Your pants must remain on the entire time (particularly important if you’re napping at work).
#2. “Nodding off in the council chamber” is NOT to be used as a euphemism for anything other than sleeping during city council meetings.
#1. If you wake up from your nap with one of the kids screaming “watch out dad!!” – it could be time to pull over to the side of the road.
