April 1

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at April 1, 2005 1:23 PM

With a visitor in lab today I haven't had a chance to look for various April Fools celebrations around the web. So: if you see a good one, post a link in the comments so I don't miss it!

Boring Boring is terrific.

In the open thread Lemming directs us to Google's latest project.

I had something in mind for this site, but wasn't able to implement it in time. Maybe it'll appear in the future...

And yeah, the Google one is great, especially the extra pages. :)

I had lunch with several of my colleagues and came out to the parking lot afterwards to find my Mini sporting an unauthorized bug bra. yeah I work with a bunch of real jokers. I'll forward the email pictures to you.

And since it's a perennial favorite, I'd recommend ya'll check out what Ninja Burger is up to for the day. They've, um, changed their format just a tad. ^^

Oh, and if you've checked out Dinosaur Comics today, their parody of A Softer World (which I also love) is fantabulous.

Oh, and if you still follow the Astronomy Picture of the Day, they've got a nice one up for today--water on Mars! (I found the link from Fark)

Here's my contribution (http://www.math.gatech.edu/~mason/writing/pul.pdf) in celebration of one of my colleagues (who wrotes lots of rec letters for me) whose birthday also happens to be today.

It's funniest if you know the private jokes, but there are also some things that are of wider interest. The physics department here was quite pleased with my contribution.
