April Fools!

Post all the First of April shenanigans you can find. I’ll start us off with Google’s GMail Motion.


and Blizzards StarCraft Motion Overdrive


Well, Google’s hiring an “Autocompleter”:


Apparently you only need to type 32,000 WPM.

Kodak has a product:


Notepad++ is giving donations to the Church of Scientology:


Internet Explorer 9 for Mac:


Ha! Someone I knew saw that E-mail about GMail’s new motion function and I totally spotted it as an April Fools.

Of course I wouldn’t be surprised if they then went and actually developed said motion reader just for the heck of it.

As for AFs I spotted, this one was the biggest…http://www.siliconera.com/2011/03/31/capcom-japan-doesnt-believe-mega-man-is-popular-in-the-u-s/

Way too obvious Capcom. Way too obvious.

So. Law school. Third year. Tons of people waited until the last minute to send in Bar applications. Two of my friends created a fake letter, really legit looking, and had their neighbors hand it over to a third friend, their roommate yesterday. It said that his Bar app was postmarked March 2 when the deadline was March 1. Therefore, he would be ineligible to sit for the NC Bar, and his $700 fee would of course be nonrefundable. However, he had until March 28 to appeal that decision. The letter was dated March 15. The neighbor said they had had the letter for a couple of weeks but just today decided to deliver it. The third friend was piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiissssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssed. I don’t know if they’ve told him yet. I read it without being in on it, and I said that if it weren’t real, it would be a brilliant April Fool’s. I got let in on the joke later that night when one of the forgers and I were at a professor’s house drinking.

I posted on my Facebook that I was going to California to find myself. Most of the people who read it weren’t shocked/surprised. Ohwell, I guess I am that spontaneous. >.>

Did you hear about what happened at NYU’s law school a while back? There was some kind of system glitch that sent out hundreds of acceptance letters to people who didn’t get into the school, and of course they had to send out a massive retraction. It actually happened again recently. Provided something like this happened on April Fools’ it’d be a brilliant prank if it wasn’t so awful.
