After seeing how badly some trick-or-treaters behave, taking the whole bowl of candy, this was definitely uplifting. Someone raised these kids right.

I left a bowl out with a sign saying help yourself. When I got home it was late and the bowl was half full.

A few late stragglers turned up around 9pm as I was packing up. I told them to empty the bowl, but I had to repeatedly assure them it was okay. Most kids do the right thing.

I had about 200 trick-or-treaters of all ages, and I was surprised how well behaved they were. But I was supervising the handouts, so I don't doubt a few of them would have dug deep if I hadn't been there. But yes, most are good.

Hey, this bowl's full of candy corn and black licorice!


Minionz t1_iv1vf6y wrote

Ah yes. Black Licorice, the candy that can inadvertently kill you if you eat a lot of it.

Yep. Great for people with low blood pressure, in moderation. If you've already got high blood pressure, stay away from that nasty stuff.

don't tell that to the Scandinavians


FriendoftheDork t1_iv5f3aj wrote

As a Scandinavian I've never heard of that. Appearently you have to eat more than 50g per day over a week, which is quite a lot.


[deleted] t1_ivi1394 wrote

That must be the weight of one of the toxic components of it. Cause I have eaten more than 100 of salt sild or tyrkisk pepper several days in a raw before


FriendoftheDork t1_ivi5c1u wrote

You eat 100g licorice per day for a week? If you do, you may be in danger.


>Å spise mer enn 50 gram svart lakris om dagen i minst to uker, kan føre til potensielt alvorlige helseproblemer - som økt blodtrykk og uregelmessig hjerterytme.

There are very few cases of this happening, and you're at risk probably only if you do this over time and/or are older than 50.

Damn. Man laerer noe nytt hver dag. Bor ikke i Norge lenger saa har ikke tilgang til ekte lakris lenger. Men skal huske aa be mamma om ikke aa sende for mye lakris til jula I aar haha


FriendoftheDork t1_ivk6x2q wrote

Bare spis litt mindre av gangen, eller ha noen "fridager" i jula uten lakris

It should be illegal for websites to show 40 second ads and then just show a loading icon on the actual video you want to watch. It's fraud.

Someone added a dum dum to my empty candy bowl when I went outside to replace it. I couldn't decide if it was a friendly or a malicious act.


toungespasm t1_iv3hgve wrote

My SO says this is staged.


WhyTheHellnaut t1_iv3hmgu wrote

This is equally likely to be scripted as the vid of the kid emptying the candy bowl into his bag.
