Friday, October 25, 2013 Top Tens: Scare Tactics
Halloween has this weird way of changing meanings as we grow up. At first, it’s a day for swift candy acquisition and consumption. By 15, it turns into skimpy cat costumes and schoolgirl skirts that ride higher than most thongs. At 18, I’ve come to a crossroads: am I still a part of the “I’m a mouse, duh” house party club, or is there something else I should be doing? Something more authentic? In the name of adventure (and boredom), my friends and I scoured Georgetown University for the creepiest spirit-channeling activities to do on the day of the devil. Luckily, our school has two graveyards, a (supposedly) haunted observatory, and some statues that scare me shitless. Here’s what we did—and what you can do—to freak yourself out on old Hallows’ Eve.

Okay, so maybe Ouija boards are sold at Toys”R”Us, but there are YouTube videos and some super detailed accounts of supernatural experiences by way of Ouija. When I told my friends about my plans to take out my Ouija board this Halloween, one of them refused to be in the same room as me. Personally, I’ve never been possessed during a Ouija game, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
