Morning Mix Show Notes 10/31
The most evil kids in horror, do people really believe in ghosts and the United Nations selected today to give us a pretty scary fact.
You would think that with all of the ability we possess to fact-check everything we would be more skeptical than ever, but this is a direct contradiction to that. A new nationwide survey by Rasmussen Reports says that more Americans than ever believe in ghosts. Almost one third of us say we believe in ghosts. No other reputable poll has ever seen the percentage so high. 62% say they don’t believe in ghosts. 7% say they aren’t sure. I do. Do you? If you don’t, read this. It might change your mind.
When you make a scary movie, kids amp up the creepy factor. It’s just a given. Which kid creeps you out the most? Gage from Pet Semetary? Damien from The Omen? Samara from The Ring? Isaac in Children of the Corn? The number one most creepy kid in horror was Regan in The Exorcist. I disagree. Danny from The Shining creeps me out the most. Peter is creeped out by Cole from The Sixth Sense. Who do you think is the creepiest kid in horror?
The United Nations has arbitrarily decided that today the seven billionth person is going to be born and the Earth isn’t getting any bigger. That means the population has doubled in the last 50 years. Have you ever wondered where you fit in on this planet? Well, there’s a new website that calculates what number you are. All you have to do is just enter your birth date and hit go. I’m number 4,377,174, 359. Try it. It’s kinda cool. The website also estimates that the world’s population by the year 2050 will be over nine billion. How scary is that?!
