Believe

Or don't.

But as we usher in All Hallows' Eve, here's a scientific look at how many Americans believe, for instance, that they could be haunted. Done by Gallup, no less. (shouldn't they be off polling likely voters or something?)

The finding that jumped out at me:

The witch trials in Europe and the United States ended hundreds of years ago, but Americans are significantly more likely to believe in witches than are Britons and Canadians. One in five Americans (21%) say they believe in witches, compared with 13% for both Canada and Great Britain. However, witches are the only item on the list in which a solid majority of respondents in all three countries do not believe.


What the hell are wrong with the Brits and Canadians? When the Great Witch Invasion begins in 2066, they'll be sorry. (or turned into toads)

Yes, we'll, er, the witches will show those Brits and Canadians.
