It's almost Halloween, and sadly it seems like more and more states, cities, and towns are cracking down on age limits for trick or treating, which to me seems dumb. If a teen would rather dress up with their younger siblings, or with friends to get some candy is it really a bad thing? They could be doing a lot worse.

Very strict trick-or-treat laws in other states.


Trick Or Treat Rules

Sadly Parts Of Illinois do have age limits. Multiple sources state,

The law in Belleville, Illinois, where it's actually called Halloween Solicitation, forbids children over age 12 from wearing a mask, and those in 9th grade or above can't "appear on the streets, highways, public homes, private homes, or public places in the city to make trick-or-treat visitations."

Children trick or treating

The state as a whole does not have an age limit, but Belleville, Illinois, and some suburbs do.

Personally, I believe cut-off ages are dumb and unfair. I'd rather give a kit-kat to a young teen than have them go out and egg a house, or drive under the influence. Kids want to look cool, so if we make them feel lame for getting candy... they will go do other things that are much less family-friendly.


Ghosts Of The Station

Today we will be looking at three ghost sightings, and the spots they were seen at.

These three "Ghosts" could all be the same one or three different ones. Though I still think the Music video ghost is by far the creepiest. As far as we know that was the only figure we ever caught on film, and not just in a picture.

I Turned The Quad Cities Into AI Art

To get the AI pictures all I had to do was type in the name of the city, and the state, the algorithm did the rest.

All these photos are computer generated, and at first glance, it looks pretty good... some more than others, but the longer you look the more you notice how weird each one is.

These are all 5 cities in the QC. To start I typed in "Quad Cities" to see the results
