    April Fools is stupid and annoying

    It seems like each year every company with an internet presence has to make some kind of dumb prank and they're almost always stupid and annoying. I couldn't care less about this 'holiday', and given how little I care about other holidays, that's saying something.

    Empty your mind. Be formless. Shapeless. Like water. Water can flow, or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

    I think it's fine, if we didn't have these little dumb but cute traditions, life would be a little more monotonous.

    I've never been a fan of practical jokes.
    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that a problem.

    I've always felt practical jokes were a pragmatic way to end friendships--which is to say, I don't generally tolerate them.

    What's so bad about it? I find a lot of the hoax news stories pretty funny.

    Somehow I found comfort in the thought that any disasters I see today may actually be an april fools joke. However, I saw no major disasters, and no April fools jokes, oh well.

    I think people should what's wrong with practical jokes, actually. So much is a joke anyway, what's wrong with some intentional ones? With intentional jokes, you don't have the option of ibterpeting them tragically.

    I find practical jokes tiresome, and April Fools to be contrived.

    I enjoy a good playful ruse, and am of the opinion that those that can't stand such things are soulless dullards who deserve to have their perspectives called into question.

    It is for their benefit that I sometimes plant the seeds of pranks that I'll never live to see play out:

    For years, I've been selectively telling family, friends, acquaintances, and the occasional supermarket cashier that I intend to eventually fake my death. Since the actual act of successfully faking one's death is a great deal of work and ultimately not worth the effort, this action is being taken in the hopes that, in the unlikely event that I do actually die that it will leave people confused and refusing to mourn, because--in their minds--I'll just be coming back to life for the laughs.

    A ghost story, a cautionary tale, or a twisted perception of reality--I could think of no better legacy for anyone.




    All that said, I have no feelings about the whole April Fools thing. Pulling off a good gag is beyond some people, but I refuse to fault them for trying.
