    Happy Halloween!

    Post by jj16802 on Thu Oct 31, 2013 2:24 pm

    Can you believe that this radio broadcast actually freaked out the entire country in Halloween Eve, 1938?

    Basically, a theater grouped adapted the book "War of the Worlds" as a radio drama that acted like a news report. The "reports" of Martians invading the United States with three legged machines called "tripods" freaked everyone out and caused a ton of calls to CBS and 911. Eventually, listeners were outraged by the show and wanted to sue CBS. And that's how Orson Welles became famous.

    This all happened in 1938.

    What were you dressed as?

    Today I saw someone dressed as Link, with the sword and shield. Needless to say, looked bad ass.

    He was an older guy too (not a kid) like my age or a little older.

    I wore Saudi Arabian clothes and got my friend who dressed up as Captain America to chase me through the cafe.

    Then I chased my other friend who was dressed as Indiana Jones.


    I think I won.

    That's the most realistic Captain America I have ever seen in my life. I mean, look it is a complete replica of him:

    I'm doing a paper on gender identity, and you have no idea how much I want to use that last photo for a cover page. I wont, because that would make me an asshole, but it is so tempting.
