      April Fools!

      For any of you who, like me, have been lacking in inspiration this April Fool's Day and suffering the bitter disappointment of jokes ineptly planned failing in undramatic ways, here are the Top 100 April Fool's Day Hoaxes of All Time to cheer you up and offer hope for the success of next year's gags, jokes, hoaxes, and "innocent" little lies. These people put me to shame for my lack of ambition.

      You know what would be a great April Fool's joke? If the change to daylight saving's time tonight in the US were only a hoax, and the real time change weren't for another week. Millions of people without one of those neat atomic-clock linked time pieces would wake up very mildly sleep-deprived and show up early for all of their appointments. If only I could give the government credit for that much creativity...

      That would be warped! Do you know if that signal comes from NORAD or from one of the less classified, above-ground (literally) government research facilities?

      Lol! Yeah, it looks like I did. But not intentionally! Where've you been? You joined before me, but I haven't seen you around.

      It would only work if enough individuals, office buildings, and government agencies have the atomic-linked clocks to create a mild temporal chaos with them on the "correct" standard time and the rest of the country fooled into springing forward an hour.

      Yeah, we should! It's too late now, but there's always next year.

      however, the chaos would probably mean a wallstreet chaos too, and there could be an other depression, lol That would be a hoot!

      Of course it wasn't intentional. It's a good thing - the world needs more Douglas Adams!

      I haven't been very active lately because I've been extremely busy over the last year. Things should finally cool off in a couple months though.
