    I keep hoping the joke was in November of 08 and someone is going to pop up on Fox news and say "April Fool!!!"

    Have you hit Google's homepage??

    They do a giant April Fool's Joke every year.

    This year's kind of sucks, but eh. You can only hit so many home runs....

    I thought the Topeka thing was a joke, but apparently they have a LOT of people convinced :D

    You should do some research on the response to Google's new "get High Speed Interwebz ANYWHERE by flushing this free fiber optic cable down your toilet" plan. I think it was 2007 or 2008.

    April Fool's Joke - of course, but they received so many responses from people who wanted to sign up for this "free beta program" that it crashed Google's "backup" server they were using for the joke.

    That is a LOT of traffic.... LOL

    On Army.mil today, they published a realistic looking article about plans to move the Pentagon (the building & staff) to Kansas...

    Some of the techier April Fool's jokes were pretty decent. My favorite was the RFC proposal for a Ccc field to the email RFC. A Cosmetic Carbon Copy includes the recipients in a field but they actually do not get the actual message. :D Similar to a Bcc, where the recipients get the message but they are not listed. ;)

    One of my favorites was on a CNC Programming site a few years back.

    Fanuc was fed up with other control mfrs 'robbing' their formatting and canned cycles. Fanuc decided to equip all owners of their controls with a software upgrade that would meld all C-axis and A-axis programming thus eliminating any need for B orientation. This would save their customers at least one line of programming and confuse competitors thus making their customer programming more streamlined and less confusing. I found it hilarious.

    I had fun at work tonight. One of my employees went to the restroom and asked me to watch the front desk for them. Big mistake! While she was gone I lifted her cash box out of the drawer. I took half of the tens out and put them in the dawer. I put the cash box back in on top of them. I left a note that says, "April Fools" on the tens under the box.

    Formatting canned cycles! Gets em every time!!

    Okay, I also have no idea what that means, but I'll bet it has something to do with the hot chick on Star Trek.:confused:

    You might be right because the joke is in the melding of C-axis and A-axis programming. See, C-axis is live tooling on a lathe that allows the lathe to do a bunch of mill work. Including but not limited to polar coodinate interprolation and polygonal turning. A huge plus is the ability to work in the X-axis for mill, drill and tap. A-axis is nothing more than an indexer positioning on a on a mill useful in working on the side of round stock. The B orientation is a Fanuc command that orients the spindle on a 2-axis lathe, so there is no C-axis. Hilleffinarious!

    Got in trouble over one a few years back- our company email had an auto reply function- send me an email, my computer sends you back a one line message. I set mine as "To continue, press control-alt-delete". Which, of course, reboots your computer.

    I had no idea we had that many gullible people,,,,,,,,,,,,:rolleyes:
