    April Fool's Day Jokes

    Instead of starting a new thread for each prank you find, just add to this one instead.

    All the buggy coding is one, I'm assuming (geocities-style cursors and active link color same as background).

    What else??

    Card declined: Your card purchase was declined for the following reason: [W111] Declined

    Please note: You can try re-entering your credit card number, but if you get this message repeatedly we recommend using a different card. SitePoint accepts Visa, MasterCard and American Express. If you don't have access to another credit card, we recommend that you retry your transaction using PayPal instead (see Payment Method below). If you don't have a PayPal account, signing-up takes just minutes and the credit card that we declined will almost certainly go through their system.
    But the bank told me I had unlimited credit... why didn't the $10 million charge go through?

    I'll probably find my credit card deactivated tomorrow for even trying the $10 mil auth on it..

    I don't believe GMail is a joke, mattjacob. Google recently patented their ads in email tech, and all the major news sites picked up the story...

    I don't think Gmail is a fake either... Unless they chose to buy gmail.com in the process...

    I guess that would mean this jokes on you..

    Google Copernicus Center is hiring

    Google is interviewing candidates for engineering positions at our lunar hosting and research center, opening late in the spring of 2007. This unique opportunity is available only to highly-qualified individuals who are willing to relocate for an extended period of time, are in top physical condition and are capable of surviving with limited access to such modern conveniences as soy lattes, The Sopranos and a steady supply of oxygen.

    The Google Copernicus Hosting Environment and Experiment in Search Engineering is a fully integrated research, development and technology facility at which Google will be conducting experiments in entropized information filtering, high-density high-delivery hosting (HiDeHiDeHo) and de-oxygenated cubicle dwelling. This center will provide a unique platform from which Google will leapfrog current terrestrial-based technologies and bring information access to new heights of utility.

    Actually, this doesn't sound like a bad idea

    CaffeDerm® Patch
    Spend too much of your life in the cube farm drinking coffee for breakfast and then again for lunch and dinner? Feel restless, nervous, anxious & all around flummoxed? Can't seem to get your hands still enough to type an error free email? Then you need a doctor. But if you just want to get off the caffeine bandwagon, we've got the perfect solution, the CaffeDerm patch! Simply apply to upper arm in the morning and it will release a steady dose of caffeine throughout the day!

    If Gmail is real, and everybody just in the US gets an account...

    280M people * 1G/person = 280 petabytes (280,000 terabytes)

    Or...if one billion people find their way online and to gmail - one exabyte.
