    We are all fools, and life is the prank being played on us.

    I was going to post how someone on the SWC board thought Wookieepedia going to a subscription-paid service was real and not an April Fool's Day joke, but after doing some more reading it turns out it's apparently a real thing.

    My most vivid April Fools prank memory is still the two radio DJs who said that one of our city parks, especially the hills, were built on nuclear waste and it was getting ready to explode. Well, you can imagine the reaction and in the fallout the two DJs lost their jobs.


    Nothing before or since has caused that much panic, not even 9/11 (and we're a military town).

    What does that mean? It is a bad attempt at old English? "This one to [wit], via the NFL" perhaps?

    my fave is the new fast-talkin', high-powered tea party lobbyist character that Jabbadabbado has introduced. as if any washington lobbyist, (even one sitting at the "conservative" kiddie table for poking at the base), would be dumb enough to fart around a star wars message board posting about his job?

    That one where the DJs nearly lost their jobs for telling people they had water in their taps, except they called water by its technical compound name.

    That was funny until it was depressing.

    Depressing as in how depressing our standards of education have come if people don't realize that H2O = water?

    Uh, the technical IUPAC name for water is water. It's sufficiently ubiquitous to be an exception. "Dihydrogen monoxide" is only ever used for jokes.

    Edit: Furthermore it's hard to lament people's lack of awareness of the meanings of chemical nomenclature when the media more or less consistently presents chemicals as a universally bad thing, reserves IUPAC nomenclature for dangerous materials, and generally enjoys whipping the public into a frenzy over anything that isn't "natural" - as if natural compounds don't have terrifyingly long chemical symbols.

    tl;dr - I am mad about chemistry.

    Juliet, as a obvious fan of April Fools pranks, what is your opinion of those ********* who choose to spoil pranks rather than just play along with them to prolong the amusement?

    I almost fooled my sister into thinking Hugh Jackman died. I forgot that she checks sourcefed religiously.

    My favorite is still the one when jp-30 posted a link to a fake article about how the Rolling Stones were going to stop playing their old hits in concert in favor of playing all new stuff, like Keith's solo stuff and jazz that Jagger was working on.

    The fact that made it a classic? Everton got absolutely incensed over it. So great.

    I think it was Everton.

    I'm amazed Juliet hasn't realized she could play the ultimate prank … link to a really good song in the music thread.

    I totally got my friend fooled when I told him LeBron James had broken the all time record for flopping.

    I still have no idea if this New Senate Vol. 2 is a prank since it's still a sub-forum and everything.
