The Twilight Zone is terrifying in the same way that your parents giving you the silent treatment when you were a kid was frightening. It messed with your mind, and was therefore more psychologically damaging than, to continue with the analogy, the Paranormal Activity movies or mom and dad yelling at you. That kind of "scary" is cheap, instantaneous, and easy (yeah, yeah, "like your mom," I know), but I'm not sure if I've ever fully recovered from the first time I saw "Time Enough at Last," and that was 14 years ago. Mind grapes, blown.

With Halloween right around the corner, I thought now would be a good time to dedicate a post to some of the life lessons Rod Serling and The Twilight Zone gave us over 156 episodes between 1959-1964. We shan't speak of the 2002 UPN revival, though it might be the most horrifying show of them all. Beware of floating doors.

Never get on a plane with William Shatner.

Be honest.

Falling in love with a robot will only end in heartbreak. Or faces opened.

Whenever something weird and unexplained happens, aliens did it.

(Via)

It's better to be vague than to maybe think about possibly doing something not vague-ish.

(Via)

In the 1960s, there was a strong opposition to proposed tax legislation.

(Via)

Don't make fun of the ridge-faced, pig-nosed kid on the playground. His kind may someday take over the planet.

(Via)

Santa Claus is a DRUNK.

(Via)

Don't cheat on your wife, lest a repairman messes with your TV, turning you completely insane.

(Via)

Avoid any room numbered "22."

(Via)

And lastly, out of context Rod Serling is the best Rod Serling.
