Worried Parents Turn to iPhones this Halloween, Download Paedophile Maps

Remember the 80s when all we used to worry about was razorblade filled candy, black-hearted madmen poisoning Halloween candy, and oddly karmic violent retribution for morally ambiguous acts?

Thousands of American parents, fearful that their children will be abused by paedophiles while trick-or-treating on Halloween, have downloaded software to identify the homes of sex offenders in their neighbourhoods.

The past always feels more innocent does it not?

More info on the iPhone app in question, the Offender Locator, can be found at Tech Crunch and Gizmodo.

The Yamanote Halloween Train

In October during Halloween a train line in Tokyo is invaded by certain foreigners.

In previous years, the Yamanote Halloween party has resulted in halted trains, vandalism, and general harassment of Japanese passengers unlucky enough to find themselves in train cars targeted by the party-goers.

Have a look at Japan Probe for the history and info on this year’s Halloween train. Samurai Dave reports on his 2007 experience: The Tokyo Yamanote Halloween Train Rides Into a Sea of Adversity.

It’s Swedish.

It’s morbid.

It’s funny.

It’s dead flies in one panel comics.

All it’s missing is a Last Supper homage.

2 for Tuesday Tease: THE FOURTH KIND of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY

The pinnacle of the ever widening debate between scientific logic versus steadfast belief is found in The X-Files Revelations .

Mulder refuses to believe in miracles. He does believe in little green men walking the streets, looking for his missing sister, and doing very odd things with bees.

Sculley refuses to believe in the rubber man, the moth man, and shark men that hunger for human brains but try very hard not to eat people’s brains only to fail and give in to primal instincts in the end. She just can’t abide these things exist in her world of science. She does believe in Catechism which proves she still has lingering remnants of faith.

For us, The X-Files peaked at this character revelation. Not long after, it degenerated back into a tired monster of the week scenario. On really bad days they “deepened” the mythology with so much nonsense that we ceased to care. Luckily Revelations remains as a small beacon of thought.

Aliens and ghosts. That’s our world distilled to its base elements. Hollywood, in its infinite wisdom, continues to dip into those wells.

THE FOURTH KIND

Summary
Strange things are happening in Nome, Alaska. More people disappear there than in any other city in the state. These same people are seeing snowy owls sitting in their windows — staring. Only they are not owls. Leeloo takes a break from her duties as the Supreme Being to investigate.

Assessment
Those grey aliens scare the crap out of us. Know that if we ever see one of those little bastards staring in our window while in the warm, comfy folds of nighttime we’re grabbing the nearest stick and murder the shit out of it. Galactic relations be damned. This creepy stalker shit will not stand, man.
