Trick or Treating tips for all ages

I'm putting together a seminar on how to better trick or treat... I'm not looking for safety tips. I need tips on how to get better, bigger candy, from picking neighborhoods to whichever costume solicits the most stuff. Tips on how to have "more fun" while trick or treating, whether you're 5 or 45. Practical and borderline legal suggestions accepted.

You're cute, but my door doesn't think so!

We are having an issue with neighborhood cats peeing on our iron mesh door that's in front of a wooden door. One of our neighbors says he caught them all and spayed/neutered them a long time ago (which we have no reason to disbelieve) and now regularly feeds them. However... [more inside]

Was purchased from toys r us about 5 years ago, but they don't carry it anymore and don't recognize it. There is no label or tag. Thank you on behalf of my daughter who is very attached to it!!

How Long Until They Knew Who Won The Battles?

I'm interested in better understanding the rate at which data transmission has increased through human history.
