Sometimes I Think I'm the Smartest Person Ever

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

While reading Bram Stoker's Dracula I was surprised when I read, and thus re-remembered what I had forgotten- that Dracula feared garlic. Seems pretty silly for an un-dead blood sucker with razor-sharp teeth, and super-human strenght, the ability to turn into a bat and walk through walls to be afraid of a common cooking ingredient.

But I progress....The logical benefit of such information is to eat a LOT of garlic on Halloween night. Like a lot. Preferably raw. Then whenever a vampire trick-or-treater comes to your door, you can breathe in his face, naturally warding him off, saving yourself a mini candy bar or roll of Smarties for your troubles. "Hhhhhappy Hhhhhhalloween!!" oughta work nicely to convey your breath.

Or maybe you can use your newly aquired garlic infused respiratory artillery to scatter those Goth kids loitering outside of your local coffee shop.

That's how I roll.
