  • <p><a href=Zodheadca3 We Misfits love Halloween. It's up there with Darwin, Festivus, and System Administrator Appreciation Day. Like you, we spend days, weeks, and in the case of at least one redheaded member of our posse, months planning our outfits each year. But like you, we're feeling the effects of the recent credit crunch on our wallets. No longer can we spend money dressing up like Big Daddy from the videogame Bioshock.

Saying that I'm a goody-two-shoes is a bit of an exaggeration but I'm definitely not evil. I can't even go the "bad guy" route in video games without feeling a twinge of guilt. That being said, I do know that there are some selfish and self-serving ways I'd end up using The Force. And here's how... " title="Top 5 Ways I’d Misuse The Force" />
