My neighborhood is "super safe" so kids flock to it on Halloween. Whats Halloween without a little tricking? Wore my welding shirt and mask and sat still until they got close. Kids say the darnedest things:roflol:

"Is it real?"
"Go touch it,". "No you touch it!"
"Throw something at it"

Then I jump out and scare the crap out of them. The best part is, their parents are standing at the street laughing their arses off:roflol:

I've actually been working at a haunted house type thing for the past month or so. I get paid $10/hr to chase people around with a chainsaw, it's great. Of course because it's a job I have to deal with people yelling at me, my paychecks being horrendously screwed up, the asshats that come in to try and start problems, and being horribly understaffed, but it's pretty nice as far as jobs go. I wish they kept running it year round :roflol:

Yeah, Blue- I just saw on the news that a lot of places are postponing halloween. Parts of New England, too, eh? wow.

I had some good laffs watching my kids get startled and spooked. One guy made them sing for their candy. They weren't sure what to to do about that, so I walked up from the curb and made them do it. Great laffs!

Devino- holy cow! I thought I was a skinny MoFo! I'm 5'10, 140lbs- you?

6'1" or so and around 135 last time I checked. I dont even wanna know how much (or little) I bench press. Sticks for appendages, perfect blood pressure, low cholesterol, and I can eat whatever I want. It has its advantages.:D

No kidding...

I've got a longtime friend with stats like that, but he's got an excuse- an underactive thyroid. Skinny as a rail, and his hair grows very slowly. Never stopped me from teasing him, though!

You must have a rough time buying pants. I wear a 30 waist (actually 29) and a 34 inseam. If I go to Hellmart or other similar stores, I can get 30x32 or 32x34. Not 30x34. What a PITA! I often get stuck buying 30x32. They're not too bad standing up, but the moment I sit, the ankle cuffs go halfway to my freaking knees!

Underactive? I was thinking, an underactive thyroid causes weight gain, but I may be wrong.

Not really. 32x32 with a belt. I never have a problem with my pants falling down; just the opposite cause my hips are the widest part of my body:roflol:

As I understand it (and I COULD have it backwards), the thyroid is responsible for growth. If it's underactive, you undergrow. If it's overactive, you end up doing Subway commercials.

From Wiki:

Hyperthyroidism, or overactive thyroid, is the overproduction of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4...It presents with symptoms such as a thyroid goiter, protruding eyes (exopthalmos), palpitations, excess sweating, diarrhea, weight loss, muscle weakness and unusual sensitivity to heat. The appetite is often increased.

Hypothyroidism is the underproduction of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4...symptoms are abnormal weight gain, tiredness, baldness, cold intolerance, and bradycardia.

IIRC, I have a slightly higher level of T3/T4. Of course...
