in reply to My idea of Halloween fun

Okay guys, you're gonna love this. I went to a Halloween party last Saturday with all my geeky friends. Here's what I did. I had a 18lb 12v 230a tractor battery strapped around my chest and hidden under my shirt. (Some people commented that I had been eating a lot of square meals, or was pregnant with a cubical child), but it was NECESSARY to power my electronic devices. I was wearing a black rubber electricians glove on my right hand, and had an X10 remote camera bound to my hand with rubberbands. It was powered in parallel with its receiver, and a pair of i-glasses Wearing the i-glasses, I wrapped all of my head except my mouth totally in black cloth. Then I spent a percentage of the party seeing through my hand. I also had a AV multiplexer taped to my wrist that was switching between my camcorder so that I could record the party too without using the viewfinder. Alas, my soldering jobs were not too good, and after a while magic smoke came out of my parallel connections. Fortunately the expensive machinery was unharmed.

Still, when I opened up my shirt to display the battery people gasped and commented on how scary it looked, and how scary it was that I was even able to come up with this idea. At the same party, I served baked brains, (bought for $1.99/lb) the fun part was, I could tell people exactly what it was and nobody beleived me! I scared a lot of people on a lot of levels that night, and that's the true meaning of halloween.
