This Video Explains How Your Halloween Candy May Slowly Be Killing You


Halloween and the raiding of your kids’ candy bags is upon us. And, lest we think that our only concern should be the high sugar intake, this video may truly scare you this Halloween.

Brought to us by animator Daniella Urdinlaiz – the cartoon goes on to explain, rather apologetically, that some of the most popular Halloween candies contain ingredients far worse than a little tooth-decaying sugar.

From trans-fat to the same stuff that you’d wax your car with — perhaps we should think twice before we’re elbow deep in our child’s candy stash. You’re welcome, and we’re sorry too.

Space Sushi Launches Raw Fish and Rice Into The Hemispheres and Beyond


Space Sushi is a Twitter account that appears to exist for no other reason, other than to show raw fish and rice dangling in space.
