To get you in the mood, read this question-filled history of the field of corpses:
For two hundred years the citizens of Arvada have wondered what happened during the Fall Harvest of 1801. What did Torrence White and his family find out in their field? Why did members of the family begin disappearing? Why has everyone who has since lived on the property suddenly died? Why do neighbors still report seeing shadows of children walking around at night? Discover the mystery behind the disappearance of the White Family and what lies in the Field of Corpses.
And since we're in the realm of teenage attractions, here's a song that's prime for listening to while taking pulls of vodka from a water bottle just before you unload a dozen eggs on to some unsuspecting teachers' car.
