Behind the mask of any good business is a creepy confirmation about human nature... Man Is Aroused by Fear!

In business you find people actually willing to be buried by bad debt and horrified that at the turn of midnight shoppers will desert you.

Just recently we witnessed how Merrill Lynch got so juiced on
frightenting loans they're close to killing their business.

According to University of Michigan psychology professor Stephen Maren as reported by the Associated Press:

"Part of the fun of Halloween is that it's a way of experiencing fear in a pretty controlled setting,"

And so along those lines here's some more about the scary side of business. Oh, there's little fun thrown in as well.
