In a Mass Knife Fight to the Death Between Every American President, Who Would Win and Why?

Redditor Xineph asks this brilliant question--no doubt the topic of many future doctoral dissertations.

I agree with those redittors who think that it would ultimately come down to Andrew Jackson vs. Teddy Roosevelt.  And if I had to place a bet, I'd predict a final victory by Jackson, largely due to the initiative he would gain early in the fight because to his sheer aggressiveness. This was a man who got into duels just to relieve boredom. The whole scenario, which saner people might think confusing, would make immediate sense to Jackson--if not be appealing.

Other redditors are making arguments for Washington, Lincoln, Eisenhower, Taylor, Grant and, oddly enough, Coolidge.

Who do you think would prevail?

15 Cool and Creepy Halloween Party Foods

If you’re throwing a Halloween party this month, don’t let it be a regular old costume party. Instead, spice things up by adding some of these Halloween-themed recipes into the mix. Whether you opt to have a full dinner party or just have a few spooky beverages and snacks, these creepy cocktails and frightful foods are sure to set the perfect mood.

Drinks


Every party has to have drinks and here are a few perfect brews for O Hallows’ Eve, including one virgin punch that is perfect for kid’s parties.



Perhaps the most beautiful Halloween cocktail is this Morphing Martini that changes colors from blue to fuchsia and has an impressive layer of fog over the top thanks to the addition of dry ice.



Alcoholic brain Jell-O is one of my own concoctions that involved the wonderful brain mold from the Neatorama shop. It’s delightfully sweet, looks creepy and the addition of Knox made it sturdy enough that guests were able to take slices from the brain a mess on their hands. If you replace the alcohol with water, this could also be a great kid-friendly dessert.



Swamp Juice is a fun, kid-friendly cocktail made with gummies, tapioca pearls, seltzer water, lemonade and some food coloring. Aside from the spooky look, the strange texture is sure to be a hit with kids too.

Appetizers


If you’re throwing a full dinner party, many of these can be repurposed as side dishes to round out your main course, but these snack-sized treats are also perfect creepy canapés.



While the potential messiness of roast tentacle au jus makes it a little intimidating for a party setting, the pure awesomeness of an alien tentacle complete with bones makes it worth buying a few party plates and forks.
