This is why magic is worse even than quantum physics. Because, while both spit in the eye of common sense, I've never yet had a Higgs bosun turn up and try to have a conversation with me.

On a related note I would kill someone for that connection speed

Some of the best, and geekiest, of the April Fools pranks so far:

Every featured youtube video links to a Rickroll (not the sponsored ones)
http://eu.starcraft2.com/features/terran/taurenmarine.xml
http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/wrath/features/bard/bardclass.xml

And virgle, which only seems to appear occasionally.

That was awesome Claire! I am amazed anyone fell for it though. Rick rolling actually got mentioned on bbc news 4 today, including a bit about anon rick rolling scientology. Great to see it getting mentioned at all.
