Come on, guys. Haunted house actors may already be “dead,” but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt when you freak out and punch them. And it happens more often than you’d think — that flight-or-flight reaction is one fickle friend, and these tough actors know that all too well.
In a Huffington Post interview, Allen Hopps, a trainer for actors in haunted houses, said, “The problem isn’t the haunted houses or the actors, but the customers. They forget that people are actors and have a flight-or-fight reaction towards the person scaring them, not realizing one might be a 16-year-old girl.” Don’t let this occupational hazard keep you from making a haunted house of your own. Just think of it this way: If you get socked in the face, you’re obviously doing your scaring right. source: wwww.huffingtonpost.com image via Flickr: “Ww1” by stranger3113
Because of a practically obscure state law, Texan Kenneth Robinson was able to claim a $300,000 house for a measly $16.
Before you rush over to Texas in hopes of getting in on the hot real estate action, know that A) the conditions under which the property was claimed are quite complex and B) Robinson will have to say in the property for 3 years before he’ll be able to petition the court for the title to the house.
Although his neighbors seem none too pleased with his knowledge of mega-thrifty loopholes, Robinson says he has no plans of leaving. We highly doubt you’ll find yourself in a similar situation, so follow these tips to buy a home the less complicated way.
