Happy Wednesday everyone! I won't even say it.
6:15- Silly things we used to do before there were TV's, Cell Phones etc. So funny, courtesy of Mental Floss. My favorite...riding the escalator. Read the rest of the list here.
6:45- Kids got in trouble for using the term "hump day". Seriously.
7:15- It’s not even Halloween yet, and across the country, haunted houses are already raking in a scary amount of dough! With more than 2,500 haunted attractions worldwide (most right here in the U.S.), the industry is now worth a whopping $300 million. A single haunted house can make anywhere from $50,000 to $3 million in a single season, with tickets usually going for between $15 and $40. Twenty percent of the nearly 160 million consumers who plan to celebrate Halloween this year intend to visit a haunted attraction of some kind. And we’re not talking kiddie stuff here- today’s haunted houses offer an interactive experience for guests who want to be truly, genuinely scared.
