Simple Can Scare You

Posted by HorrorBBQ Views: 7,182

It's funny how today for Halloween people wear the craziest costumes and make up to appear scary, yet back in the day someone can just put on some sheets look like a mixture of the KKK and a ghost and really scare a motherfucker. 

Simple, Yet

Scary.

Wendy's Changes Logo!

Posted by DarlingPD Views: 9,358

How Dare They! 

Wendy's Changes Logo and Branding. 

 

 Wendy’s, which has reported same-store sales increases for the past five quarters, is on the up-and-up, he said, but there’s always room for improvement. New Wendy’s locations won’t just have a new logo — they’ll also feature Wi-Fi access, fireplaces and digital menu boards.

 

The brand is also introducing a Mobile Nutrition smartphone app that is designed to allow consumers to customize meals and more easily calculate their calorie intake.

 



Wendy’s is in the process of changing a whole lot about the company — from introducing new menu items to remodeling stores and crafting an updated logo for the brand.

The changes are all part of a process to help the quick-service restaurant chain “leap frog” over its competition, said Craig S. Bahner, chief marketing officer at Wendy’s Restaurant Group.

 

 

“Consumers have raised the bar, and we have to meet that bar,” he said. “[The restaurant remodel] is part of a broader campaign that includes the new uniforms and the logo we announced today. It has the advertising component and also marketing, including our digital program and menu innovations.”

Killer Rice Wine in Vietnam

Posted by HorrorBBQ Views: 6,410

Posion hooch has killed 66 people in the last five years in Vietnam and affected another 183 people in a total of 196 cases, Tuoi Tre newspaper reported Thursday.


Ho Chi Minh City and the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai together accounted for almost a third of the cases, it said quoting a report by the Vietnam Food Administration.


Most of the deaths were caused by ruou de (glutinous and non-glutinous rice wines) with high methanol content and rice wine made using poisonous herbs, the report said.


Vietnam has 328 units, including family-run ones, producing a total of 360 million liters of rice wine a year, it said.

Ouija Board - Access to Unconscious Mind

Posted by DarlingPD Views: 9,078

Canadian researchers have come up with an unconventional technique for investigating the unconscious using a Ouija board—a wooden board marked with the words “yes” and “no.”

 

The University of British Columbia (UBC) team hopes to apply what they learn to make things like planes, cars, and objects in the home more intuitive and safer to use.

 

“Most people think they have complete control of their minds, but they are wrong,” said study co-author Ron Rensink in a press release. “The truth is, we perform thousands of unconscious mental and physical tasks every day.”

 

Rensink gives driving as the perfect example: “In many cases, we are navigating through dangerous situations, thinking only about what we want for dinner,” he explained. “We get home and often remember very little about the trip.”

 

The researchers found that people gave more accurate responses when guessing the answers to questions with a Ouija board (65 percent) versus answering verbally (50 percent). In contrast, when participants thought they knew the answer, both response types had almost equal accuracy.

 

“These surprising findings suggest we have a powerful ‘second intelligence’ resting beyond our conscious minds that can be accessed under the right conditions,” said study co-author Hélène Gauchou in the release.

Halloween Fun Facts

Posted by HorrorBBQ Views: 6,609


The kids watch the opening of Thing From Another World, The (1951) on TV. Carpenter would later re-make this film himself in 1982 as Thing, The (1982).

Halloween was shot in 21 days in the spring of 1978. Made on a budget of $300,000, it became the highest-grossing independent movie ever made at that time.

According to screenwriter/producer Debra Hill, the character of Laurie Strode was named after John Carpenter's first girlfriend.

Inside Laurie's bedroom there is a poster of a painting by James Ensor (1860-1949). Ensor was a Belgian expressionist painter who used to portray human figures wearing grotesque masks.

Halloween takes place primarily in fictional Haddonfield, Illinois. Haddonfield, NJ is the home town of screenwriter Debra Hill.

The performance of Halloween's musical score is credited to "The Bowling Green Philharmonic." There is no Philharmonic in Bowling Green. The "orchestra" is actually John Carpenter and assorted musical friends.

HALLOCHEAP

Since the movie was actualy shot in spring, the crew had to buy paper leaves from a decorator and paint them in the desired autumn colors, then scatter them in the filming locations. To save money, after a scene was filmed, the leaves were collected and reused.

Due to its shoestring budget, the prop department had to use the cheapest mask that they could find in the costume store: a William Shatner mask, from the movie "The Devil's Rain." They later spray-painted the face white, teased out the hair, and reshaped the eyeholes

cool facts and it shows you don't need a big budget to make a horror classic.

Ice Cream Company Faces Scruity Over Slur

Posted by HorrorBBQ Views: 6,388

 

 

“It was wrong. I screwed up,” Matt Schaeffer, president of Wilcoxson’s Livingston Ice Cream, was quoted as saying by NBC News. “I don't want to be the one who took down a 100-year old company because I made a stupid comment. If necessary, I will resign.”

 

The row started after a Muslim customer asked about the company’s cookies and cream-flavored ice cream containing gelatin.“Does it contain pork? I am a Muslim and love your ice cream and when I read it today I was shocked,” the customer wrote on Wilcoxson’s Facebook page.

 

“I look forward to you writing me back. Thank you. If possible, if it does have pork gelatin please tell me what flavors do so I can avoid them thanks again.”

 

Relying to the question, Schaeffer wrote “We don’t deliver outside of Montana, certainly not Pakistan.”The Muslim customer replied that the comment was “rude” for assuming he lived in Pakistan. “What are u talking about!!??? I think. ur comment is rude to assume I live in Pakistan,” the customer wrote.

 

“Just because of your ignorance, I won’t buy your ice cream and definitely won’t recommend it.”Justifying his comment, Schaeffer argued that he was tired and did not see the customer’s address.“There was a map on his Facebook page with a map of Pakistan, with a balloon in the center,” Schaeffer said.

Posted by Wildcats Views: 8,354

 

 

Australian Premier Colin Barnett  announced the $6.85 million plan of package of new "shark mitigation" strategies aimed at, "reducing the risk of shark attacks against Western Australian beachgoers." The funding will be added to a similar $13.65 million shark mitigation plan announced last year.

 

$2 million of the funding will fund a program for the Department of Fisheries to, "track, catch and, if necessary, destroy sharks identified in close proximity to beachgoers." NBC news reports: "[Barnett] announced Thursday that any great white sharks seen near beachgoers would be killed in order to prevent attacks on humans."

 

There have been five deaths connected to shark attacks this year in Western Australia; 12 shark fatalities have been recorded in the area over the last 100 years, according to NBC news.

"We will always put the lives and safety of beachgoers ahead of the shark," Barnett told ABC radio.

 

"This is, after all, a fish — let's keep it in perspective."

Shark Attack Provention: 

KILL THE SHARKS!
