Kids are not stupid. They know that finding the kind of person who leaves out candy for you to take without monitoring what you take is a rare deal. Most kids will try not to mess up a sweet gig like that, unless of course they've been taught by their parents that it's OK to ruin a perfect world for everyone if some sugar is at stake. That's what YouTuber InternetLasers learned when a trip out of town on Halloween meant they wouldn't be able to hand out candy. Not wanting to disappoint the local children, InternetLasers put out full-sized candy bars on a table outside their home with the note "Help yourself, but be considerate!"
