Wouldn't ceramic show up on an XRay just like bones would?

Probably, as it has a higher density (and lower water content) than the apple. However, it was more of a joke than anything else.

Yeah. So would plastic. It's all about the differences in the surrounding densities. I x-rayed a flashlight once and you could clearly see the glass of the bulb and the filament inside.

Pink silk scarf lined with fox fur made by Fendi reminds me of something...um:

Now: imagine someone's head coming out of it to complete the image.

Fendi has pulled this version off their online shelves although there are still versions in blue and red, plus there are also furless versions in many colors still including the same pink

Of course not.

I would, however, be sure to remind those paranoid parents that the x-ray would only show needles and razor blades; and that if the candy had been injected with LSD or heroin, you wouldn't be able to detect that with an x-ray.

The kids SURE ARE getting poisoned, with all those chemicals in the candy, but most of all, IT'S THE SUGAR! The kids will get fat, and their teeth will get cavities and rot. Life long pain and suffering! why would an evil person need to add anything to the candy?

I offer myself to take that bullet. The children are the future, so I'll sacrifice myself for them. Send all the candy to me, THINK OF THE CHILDREN!

There has never, ever been a documented case of people handing out poisoned or rigged candy on Halloween.
It simply does not happen.

funny how the same scare stories come out every single year

i remember trick-or-treating back in the 70s and it was a major fear even then

people just love spreading these tales

It's interesting, on Snopes they go through the history of this and all the cases were never random. Usually some psycho trying to poison a specific kid--usually their own child.

I got a laugh out of one, because it is one of the earliest stories and it took place in my home town. I have no clue who this woman was (the incident occurred before I was born), but she was annoyed at some trick or treaters because they looked too old .

Antedating both these stories is the odd case of Helen Pfeil, a Greenlawn, N.Y. housewife who was arrested in 1964 for handing out arsenic-laced ant poison buttons as part of a self-evident Halloween joke. Annoyed that many of the trick-or-treaters were too old to be asking for free candy, she made up packages of inedible “treats” to give to the teenagers. The packages contained dog biscuits, steel wool pads and the ant buttons (which were clearly marked “Poison” and labeled with a skull and crossbones). She also took the precaution of telling the teenagers that the packages were a joke when she handed them out, and there is no record of anyone’s being harmed by her actions. Even so, the potential for harm was there so she was charged. She pled guilty to endangering children and eventually received a suspended sentence
.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

that's actually clever ... putting special "treats" together for the costume-less teens that always show up

sans poison, of course

I was homeless on Halloween when I was 17. So I wrapped a blanket around myself and went trick or treating as a ghost because I was starving.

really?

damn

ok, it's survival, totally justified, nothing to be ashamed of...

But teens asking for free candy without a costume? not even the... uhm... minimum effort of a blanket to be a ghost? they deserve no candy.

you know what I'm talking about, kids who COULD do something but won't even try

also, don't play dumb. Teens that don't need free anything. IT HAPPENS. Sometimes you even know them from around your neighborhood.

Do we really need to be so judgemental that we deny someone ten cents worth of candy?

You and the people asking for Halloween candy shouldn't interact for long enough for it to be memorable for either one of you. If a teenager wants a Snickers mini it's not the end of the world. Maybe they *are* starving.

And hell, it's not like a majority of households in the U.S. are hurting for leftover Halloween candy at the end of the night.

ok, ten cents of candy, that's all they get

good costumes get a handful

kids that come with hot moms get full size snickers

but, that's not happening anymore, people stopped trying to make trick or treat happen around here

by the way, I've actually bought food for homeless kids, believe it or not

This isn't the "I've done good things" Olympics. If you have then that's great.

But it's just not healthy to be actively looking for reasons to treat people unequally, and particularly when we don't know their circumstances. It's not good to feel self-satisfaction at denying that teenaged kid ten cents worth of candy when that kid might honestly be starving.
