Halloween, or Hallowe’en, is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31.

Traditional activities include trick-or treating, carving jack-o-lantarn’s, Halloween festivals, bonfires, costume parties, visiting haunted houses and viewing horror films.

Halloween originated from the Celts of Ireland and Great Britain and immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century.

Hitting “reply all” on emails or leaving the kitchen a mess annoys coworkers, but not as much as…

Work colleagues who spend their day gossiping, organizing their home lives, or who press “reply all” on e-mails are among the biggest nuisances in the office, according to a survey released on Monday.

The 22-year-old formula one driver, who missed out on being the youngest driver and first rookie to claim the world championship by just one point last season, is tired of the intrusion into his private life since his advent at McLaren.

FEMALE ATTRACTION

In the name of science, the dancers shed new light on female attraction, reports Roger Highfield.

Lap dancers have provided the strongest evidence yet for the controversial idea that women send out signals to reveal when they are fertile and most likely to become pregnant.

During the non-fertile periods of their menstrual cycle, both sets of dancers earned similar tips.

SPAM BUYING

Find Top quality replica luxury watches

These are all real subject lines for spam messages I’ve received today alone. I’ve never been tempted to buy a fake watch from a spammer, but I’ve always wondered what would happen if I really did shell out the $49 for one of these AMAZ1NG R0L3X REPLICAS!!!

Now I no longer have to: we have just bought from a spammer, tracked the money, and reported the results for you to see.

Much to everyone’s surprise, our hero’s item was apparently actually shipped from China to him in Virginia according to shipment tracking information. Alas, there’s a surprise ending, as the post office appears to have lost it only miles from his doorstep.
