Friday Fun: How Stuff Works web site (special Halloween stuff)

I haven’t spent much time with the How Stuff Works web site yet, but I’m interested in checking it out. It claims to be “an award-winning source of unbiased, easy-to-understand answers and explanations of how the world actually works.” But for Halloween the site is offering some very special content.

One segment of it is “Stuff You Missed in History Class,” and its special offerings for Halloween include a podcast on “The History of Halloween Candy” and two podcasts on Bela Lugosi.

Other segments of How Stuff Works also feature Halloween-flavored audio podcasts on Oct. 31, 2014:

There’s definitely a lot of…well, stuff at this site, including quizzes (“What Doomsday scenario Are You?“) and many categories including electronics, science (which for Halloween, featured explanations of how mummies, vampires and werewolves work), tech stuff, health, and more.
