  • Ah... unwrapped candy being put into the kids buckets. Once upon a time there wasn't a fear of potential "extra" things in the treats, such as poison or razor blades or pieces of broken glass, etc... You could actually be given an apple and eat it without worry. Nowadays if it doesn't come wrapped, then checked, and even for some if not given by known people of your family, the treats are thrown into the garbage. It's sad that the treats are more scary than the costumes and that some people just have to ruin things for others.

  • So basically much of America, stop culturally appropriating Halloween, unless you can trace your ancestry back to the Celts. I know Buzzfeed doesn’t worry about accuracy, but Scotland is still (for now) part of the UK, so there was no need to mention it separately, especially as you chose not to mention Wales, which was also home to the Celts. The area of Ireland you highlighted is Northern Ireland, still part of the UK. If you had said Northern Ireland, and Great Britain, you would have been correct, as NI is part of the United Kingdom, but not part of Great Britain, although they hold British passports. By Ireland you probably meant the Rep. of Ireland, which is the larger part to the left of the section you highlighted. When you get even the basics wrong, I don’t have much faith in any part of the video being accurate.

The case would be easiest for you to present as all the related facts are available to you in public Domain (Except who killed them) . Even two movies are made based on the same. Here is a brief description. The Noida double murder case refers to the unsolved murders of 13-year-old girl Aarushi Talwar and 45-year-old Hemraj Banjade, a male live-in domestic worker employed by her family. The two were killed on the night of 15-16 May 2008 at Aarushi's home in Noida, India. The tiny details of the events happened at the night of the murder can give you chills. Hope you give it a try. Big fan of your show.

I know we didn’t mention Northern Ireland (although it is a part of the Uk, but so is Scotland), maybe we should JUST highlight that? All yea’s?* *but what about Wales? It’s the only country besides England we haven’t mentioned, although I guess everyone know England is a part of the UK... should we just say the countries? Oh, and should we be clarifying the very general “Northern Europe? People may think Scandinavia or The Nordic countries?* *no! We’re Americans, they expect us to get it twisted in the most confusing way possible! Only Northern Ireland!!!* * But sir, that’s confusing even for me are you sure we shouldn’t(...) * I said ONLY Northern Ireland!!! What, do you have a doctorate in geography now? What’s next? Norway isn’t the capital of Sweden??!? Shut up, stop embarrassing yourself and ONLY highlight Northern Ireland!!!(Continues listening to Zombie by the Cranberries)*
