So take this quiz picking your favorite scary movies and find out what Halloween costume you will wear to drink your pumpkin ale and binge on bite-size chocolate.
Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
While sitting on your couch watching movies is not a great way to stay in shape, if you are looking for a lazy way to burn some extra calories, watching scary movies is the way to go. A study by the University of Westminster hooked movie viewers up to equipment that tracked their vital signs. They found that watching horror movies increased the heart rate of the viewers. As your pulse quickens and your blood pumps faster, the body experiences an increase of adrenaline. This adrenaline that is produced during short bursts of intense stress increases the Basal Metabolic Rate ultimately burning a higher level of calories. So the next time you go on a Netflix binge, go ahead and make sure that you are watching terrifying horror movies so you can justify this time as your work out for the day. Oh, and in case you were wondering, the film that the study found to burn the most calories (184 calories total) was "The Shining."
Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)
So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
