Research Says Our ’5 Second Rule’ is Off

My co-workers here at the radio station are pretty good at obeying that unwritten "Five Second Rule."

Most families seem to take the kids in costume to houses in their own neighborhoods, but others have been known to drive well out of their way just to hunt down the best candy. Once the word starts to spread that a neighborhood passes out full-size Snickers, that's where the mini-vans head!
