The dark history behind Halloween is even more chilling than you realized

Halloween Words & Phrases

Everyone’s favorite in the United States, Halloween is gaining popularity in Russia. And since the festival of spirits, witches, and pumpkins is tomorrow, I hope it will be helpful to put together a list of words and phrases on this topic. Image by Alexas_Fotos from Pixabay I’m sure at least some of you were wondering what the Russians do on Halloween.

Back in 1955, McDonald's offered 15-cent hamburgers. Tim Boyle/Newsmakers/Getty Images Some of the most famous fast-food chains were practically unrecognizable years ago. Many aspects of fast-food restaurants, from the menu to the technology and the overall restaurant design, have evolved over the years.

Mini Rolls Out Two New Special Editions & We Want Both

Expect Mini Coopers’ just released 1499 GT Special Edition and the Mini Countryman Oxford Edition to stoke excitement among its fans. The automaker has only about 0.21 percent of the U.S. market share, but Mini owners are loyal. I had weekly invitations to drive my own Union Jack-decorated Mini Coupe to an array of enthusiast events or buy bling that harkened back to the Mini’s 1959 birth. The spunky Mini didn’t arrive in the U.S. until 2002, and I can tell you there are plenty of owners that...

All Jacked Up

Gather ’round the campfire and pull your loved ones in close. It’s time for a ghost story more haunting than the Winchester Mystery House, more frightful than Frankenstein, and more bewitching than the lovely ladies of Salem. I’m talking about the tale of Stingy Jack. Naysayers may call it a myth, but legend has it that Stingy Jack was classic con artist, scraping by on someone else’s dollar while swindling his way into another man’s coin purse. He was already a man on the fringes of society, ma...

Connecting Lawyers With People, For Good, Since 2003

“Connecting lawyers with people, for good, since 2003,” feels like a much nicer – or least more mature – mantra than “We build blogs for the lawyers.” The latter from when we kicked things off at LexBlog in November, 2003. The Internet is about connecting with people in a real and intimate way. Always has been, always will be. There’s no such thing as differentiating between a “virtual world” and a “face-to-face” world.” One world, different mediums of engagement. Engagement leading to ...

CS Soapbox: Franchises That Need to End Following Fast & Furious

CS Soapbox: Franchises that need to end following Fast & Furious “Overstaying its welcome.” It’s a phrase I’ve often heard when discussing television but very rarely in the film world, despite a number of franchises running far past their expiration date, and with the recent confirmation that Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furious mainline series would be coming to an end after two more films, I think it’s high time we look at some of the many movie series out there, be they our favorites or most...

REVIEW: Jack in the Box Unchicken Sandwich

Which came first, the chicken or the pea protein isolate? Domesticated chickens date back to 2000 BC, but peas were present a few thousand years before that. When considering whether those peas were dried, milled, wet filtered, and put in a centrifuge to extract the protein… I’m going to just give the chicken a win. And Jack in the Box is giving the chicken a win too, sparing them from its new offering, the Unchicken Sandwich. Jack in the Box is currently testing the Unchicken Sandwich only in...
