Did you think to yourself, 'this year on Halloween, I really want to NOT hand out candy, what else could I hand out'? I guess you're in luck...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.

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

2. Noisemakers. Which I'm sure the parents wil LOVE *she said sarcastically* 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.

It doesn't happen often, but every once in a while you see something flat-out BRILLIANT on a crowdfunding website. This is one of those times.

A guy in San Francisco has created a product called the Suitsy . . . and it could change business meetings, weddings, and funerals forever. The Suitsy is a ONESIE that LOOKS like a business suit, but FEELS like wearing pajamas.

You slip it on and zip it up using a zipper hidden behind the fake buttons on the shirt. The cuffs are fake and adjustable, and the WAIST is adjustable too. Based on the photos, it really does look like a wool suit instead of pajamas.

You can even put on a real tie and pass it off as an actual suit.

The Suitsy is on the crowdfunding site Betabrand right now. It'll cost you $302.40 to fund it and get one . . . they'll be shipping in May.

Here's a couple of pics....

The year was 1984, I was 3 years old and it was Halloween. My mom was trying to get us kids to eat before we went trick-or-treating, with trying being the key word, tough task for her when all we really wanted to do was get on our costume and go get some candy. None-the-less there we were eating in the dining room when the lights started flickering off and on. I've always been a bit of a chicken, okay a huge chicken, but I digress...next thing I know lights go out, there are only candles burning, convenient know that I think about it and in enters a big burly man (who's similar to my dad in size) with a plaid flannel lumber jack type shirt and the most hideous, scariest face you could imagine. Keep in mind I'm three so all I could think at that moment is, monsters are real and they are in my house, I'm going to die. Naturally, I scream at the top of lungs and run around the monster and get away as he tries to grab me. It wasn't until I had locked myself in my parents room for a good hour that I finally opened the door to my mom AND my dad wearing the same clothes as the monster and he showed me the mask was just something he was wearing. That mask reared it's "ugly head" every year after until all of us kids moved out and Halloween just wasn't the same anymore. Looking at it now it was the tradition I remember the most, that sticks out in my mind the most and even if I was scared I wouldn't have changed those moments for anything. What's your family tradition? Do you have one? Are you looking for one? You could steal my families, I don't mind but if you want something perhaps not as scary check out the list of 25 family traditions to start, below.

A new study found men have ROCKETED past women and are now FAR more obsessed with how they look. Check out these stats . . .

1. Men spend 15 total months over the course of their lives in the gym and working out . . . that's seven times longer than women, who spend two months.

2. Men spend two years and three months of their lives showering . . . women spend one year and eight months.

3. Men spend 5.5 total months shaving . . . women spend one month. However, men spend a total of one month on body hair removal, women spend three months.

4. Women spend longer on getting their hair cut and styled, 10-and-a-half total months versus five months. Women also spend one month taking care of their nails . . . men spend 27 days.

When you add all that up, men spend a total of 4.5 years of their lives on their appearance . . . women spend 3.1 years.

If you had to choose between living in a house that's haunted, or one that ISN'T haunted, we're assuming you'd choose "isn't haunted." But that's no fun. So if you HAD to live in a haunted house . . . what would you want haunting it?

In a new survey, 41% of people say they'd most want a house that's haunted by a vengeful GHOST. 26% would go for a possessed DOLL . . . 23% would want an EVIL LEPRECHAUN . . . and only 9% would want a DEMON.

Here are some more results from the survey . . .

68% of people would have an exorcism if their house was haunted.

59% of people wouldn't buy a house if someone had been MURDERED in it.

13% of people wouldn't buy a house if the address was 666.

9% of people would sell their soul to double the square footage of their house.

And 7% would sell their soul to get a pool.

Here are 10 things you're doing that might be SHORTENING your life.

1. You're single. Studies show that being single for long periods of time could shave a decade off your lifespan.

2. You sit for long periods of time. Researchers found that if you sit for over three hours a day, you're cutting a few years off your lifespan. And that ratio just increases the more hours you spend sitting.

3. You don't have a lot of friends. People with weak social connections die at higher rates. Experts found that being lonely can be as bad for your health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.

And elderly people with a TON of friends are 22% less likely to go.

4. You watch a lot of TV. This is bad news for binge-watchers over age 25. Every hour of TV you watch supposedly reduces your lifespan by 21 minutes. Go ahead and do the math . . . if that's not too depressing.

5. You eat unhealthy. Obviously. But you might not know that eating red meat can shorten your life by 20% if you eat extra portions.

6. You're unemployed. Not having a job can increase your risk of premature death by 63%.

7. You don't get the big O enough. Basically, if you're not getting any, you're 50% more likely to die than the people who are getting lucky.

8. You put up with annoying co-workers. Luckily, whether or not your BOSS supports you is NOT a factor in your mortality. But people with strong social support at work from their OTHER co-workers tend to live longer.

9. Your sleep is messed up. If you get less than five hours or more than NINE hours, your life expectancy decreases.

10. You fear death. The fear of a shortened lifespan is called "thanatophobia" . . . and it can actually CAUSE you to have a shortened lifespan.

Do you have a pet name for your significant other? Do they have a pet name for you? Do you use these names in public? Curious minds are wondering, okay mainly mine, but Daily Mail did a survey over in the UK about how many couples use pets names and I wonder if in America we use them more or less. Here is what we have learned about PET NAMES .
1. Only 55% of people have a pet name for their significant other.
2. Two-thirds of people who use pet names sometimes use it in public or in front of family and friends.
3. Some of the most common pet names people use are: Honey or hon . . . babe or baby . . . sweetheart or sweetie . . . and sexy.
4. When men are talking to other people, 15% refer to their wife as "the boss" . . . 14% call her "my better half" . . . and 3% call her the "ball and chain."
5. When women are talking to other people, 20% refer to their husband as "hubby." (Daily Mail)

As heard on Chris, John & Jane in the morning...according to experts, here are four things you're probably NOT doing, that you should be.

1. Wait 15 minutes before you check your phone. Checking email or Facebook first thing in the morning makes you more likely to check it CONSTANTLY throughout the day. And giving yourself 15 minutes helps prevent you from becoming ADDICTED.

2. Get out of bed the right way. Which is to roll on your side . . . push yourself up, so your legs are hanging off the bed . . . and then stand up with your back straight.

Your muscles tend to be stiffer in the morning. So jumping out of bed . . . or even standing up too fast . . . makes you more likely to hurt yourself, especially once you start getting older.

3. Stretch. It makes you less likely to pull a muscle, and it also wakes you up. You can even do it while you're still in bed.

4. Skip your first cup of coffee, and have hot water with lemon. Which is good for your throat, and also kick-starts your metabolism. Once you drink it though, you have to wait 30 minutes to brush your teeth, because the acid softens your enamel.

Well.....maybe it hurts...but just not as much as you remember!

A new study out of Open University in Israel found that childbirth ISN'T as painful as women say it is.

Yes, it's extremely painful at certain moments . . . no one's arguing that. But the researchers say women tend to forget the times during labor when it's NOT quite as painful and just remember the extreme pain peaks.

So . . . when women think back on giving birth, they focus on the most painful parts and, over time, they feel like the entire birth process was at that peak level.

In the study, women rated the birth process less painful two days after their delivery than they did when the researchers asked them again two months later.

Growing up I thought my oldest brother and I were going to kill each other because we fought so much and I was eight years younger than him. But if you asked him he would tell you I would have won because he couldn't get anywhere near me without crying to mom and dad. Years later I have since apologized to my oldest brother, one of my best friends now, and don't have the best memory of being such a brat but I'm sure I was. Which is why I like this study it definitely describes myself and my three brothers. It's amazing how years can change your opinion on siblings, however if you think you'll never fight again...think again, you are after all still family!

When you load up your plate on Thanksgiving, all the food winds up touching each other in a giant carb-loaded orgy. So the latest Thanksgiving trend KNOWS all the food blends together . . . and saves you the hassle of serving them separately.

It's called "Thanksgiving in a Bucket." When you're making Thanksgiving dinner, instead of having everything on its own separate dish, you layer everything into a bucket . . . kind of like a Thanksgiving parfait.

You put stuffing on the bottom, because it's best at absorbing all the other flavors. Then mashed potatoes on top of that . . . then a green vegetable . . . then sweet potatoes . . . turkey and gravy . . . and finally cranberry sauce.

And you serve it with a big cake spatula so you can give someone an entire slice of Thanksgiving all at once.

We live in a world where technology spells everything for us, or at least tries to guess what we are spelling. The UK website DailyMail recently figured out what words the Brits can't spell and it made me wonder, what words are the most difficult for us here in America? Would we struggle with the same words. Perhaps it's time to take a little spelling test and see how a person fares. See if you know how to spell words that apparently the Brits can't!

Story from (WABC-TV New York City)

For more than two decades, Red Bull has been using the slogan "Red Bull gives you wings," though according to some disappointed customers, that's just not true. And if you've bought a Red Bull in the past 12 years, you're eligible for a cash settlement.

According to industry publication BevNET, the energy drink company agreed to pay out $13,000,000 to settle the U.S. class action lawsuit that had accused the energy drink company of false and misleading advertising claims.

Plaintiff Benjamin Careathers claimed he had been drinking Red Bull since 2002 before filing the lawsuit in 2013 in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York. Careathers argued that Red Bull had mislead him and consumers about the product's excellence with the slogan "Red Bull gives you wings," and claims of increased performance, concentration and reaction speed.

"Such deceptive conduct and practices mean that (Red Bull's) advertising and marketing is not just 'puffery,' but is instead deceptive and fraudulent and is therefore actionable," the suit argued.

The settlement may include the millions of people who had purchased at least one Red Bull can in the past 12 years. Red Bull has offered class members the option of choosing either a $10 reimbursement, or $15 worth of Red Bull products.

That's right. If you bought a Red Bull between January 1st, 2002 and October 3rd, 2014, Red Bull wants to make things right. All you have to do is register your claim at http://energydrinksettlement.com/ by March 2nd, 2015 and you're on your way to either some cold hard cash or liquid sugar, take your pick. No proof of purchase required.

Note: those on social media report that the claim site has repeatedly crashed due to a surge in traffic.

In a correspondence with BevNET, Red Bull issued a statement:

"Red Bull settled the lawsuit to avoid the cost and distraction of litigation. However, Red Bull maintains that its marketing and labeling have always been truthful and accurate, and denies any and all wrongdoing or liability."

Despite denials of any wrongdoing, Red Bull has pulled and revised some marketing claims that were challenged in court, according to BevNET.

Did Red Bull fail to "give you wings?" Will you be cashing in on the settlement? Let us know in the comments below.

When you look at Wikipedia, a Cronut is described like this "Cronut is a croissant-doughnut pastry invented by a sous chef and trademarked[1][2] by Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City.[3][4] The pastry is made by frying a laminated dough in canola fryer oil. The fried pastry is then sugared, filled, and glazed." It sounds delicious doesn't it! For those who feel like taking on the challenge the secrets to make them have been finally released!Be warned though this is not for the amateurs, the recipe looks intense...but the effort by betting is worth it!

Remember Tetris? Maybe you still play it to look busy at work! Well, the Wall Street Journal reports that the iconic videogame is coming to the silver screen as a live-action movie.

Now, there is no cast or director yet, but Threshold Entertainment executives who pitched the idea say that it will be an "epic si-fi adventure" and don't worry, they're not going to have a bunch of weird, geometric shapres running accross the screen.

It gets better though! the executives say that if this movie does well, that it is just the tip of the iceberg with "intergalactic significance".

We laugh now, but they did make a movie about legos...
