Halloween is that time of year when we all get to be a little weird.
We get to dress up and play pretend and if your of the right age (and sometimes not), you can go door to door for sugar drenched sweets that have no nutritional value and if you believe the legends could also be poisoned as well.
Everything in moderation is good including the strange and the horrifying but sometimes these things can go too far.
The ‘Halloween Whopper‘ from fast food monolith Burger King and the rampant press over the fact that the specialty burger can make one’s poop turn green is one such example of this sort of indulgence taken beyond it’s proper limit.
The act of Human beings trying to contact the dead on the other side has become a common part of paranormal research over the years.
Whether it be raps on a wall or table, direct communication through a psychic or automatic writing, spirit communication really collided with the general public since the talking board or ‘Ouija’ board was created in the late 19th century.
Since then many a horrifying tale, both fiction and non, has started with a group of friends using the tool to communicate with the great beyond.
The slow and painful act of waiting for the ghost to actually spell out his message seemed a bit out of date however to an enterprising trio who have brought ‘Emoji’ to the Ouija mojo.
It started with a vision of using little graphical pictures on the board for the spirits to communicate with the living.
Ever wanted to know if the ghost in your house was in love, happy, sad, was trying to tell you about an old Indian burial ground or was in a murderous rage in hardly no time and via a cute ghost cartoon your kids will adore?
Your prayers may have been answered.
When it comes to myths, urban legends and tall tales, there are some that are just classics.
Don’t let a black cat cross your path, breaking a mirror is seven years bad luck, Bloody Mary and don’t walk under a ladder.
However one superstition actually causes people to change their daily plans and gave birth to the title of a infamous horror movie franchise: Friday the 13th.
Of course, the idea that one day on any calender is more unlucky or strange then another is pure craziness…or is it?

A woman in China, thought to be dead, crawled out of her coffin to cook herself a meal, because apparently death makes one very hungry indeed.
We all love the Statue Of Liberty, that shining beacon of hope and freedom that greeted so many of the immigrants as they came to America.
But Amanda Whittaker loves Lady Liberty in a way that many might find a bit strange.
Whittaker suffers from objectum sexuality, a rare condition that causes the person to fall in love with inanimate objects rather then people.
