delirium happy

Gosh, is it that time of year already?

Time for the annual reminder of this.

Today is March 31. This means that tomorrow is April 1, with all that that entails.

I'm not generally a fan of pranks and practical jokes. Very occasionally I'll find them funny. More often I'll find them somewhere in between inane and pointless and cruel and hurtful. This opinion does not changed based upon the date. As such:

1. If you're planning some sort of practical joke against me, please don't. Odds are that I'll just get pissed off at you, and then you'll get pissed off at me for getting pissed off, and it will just be a big annoying mess where nobody wins.

2. If you're planning a practical joke against someone else then don't expect me to go along with it, because I won't. I also won't be pulling any pranks of my own.

3. If you're the sort of person who is like me and gets annoyed or upset at practical jokes, please be careful tomorrow, take things with a pinch of salt, and so on.

4. If you're the sort of person who enjoys practical jokes, please prank responsibly and try to avoid pissing people off, but enjoy your day.

That is all.

Because I have too many browser tabs open and need to close some of them:

Flight of the Hamsters – It's like the bastard child of the hampsterdance (sans de-do-de-doh) and that game where you hit a penguin with a bat. And it's fun. My best so far is a hamsterrific 948ft.

Cosplay Transformers – Yes, you read that right.

Why every city council needs at least one geek – A stunning example of human stupidity, and possibly the least credible legal threat in the history of the Internet.

Student punished for spaghetti beliefs &ndash In which we see why secularism makes sense, why giving something special privilege merely because it's labelled "religion" is silly, and why we really need to stop giving a damn what other people do when it doesn't actually negatively impact us.

10 most magnificent trees in the world – Tree pretty. Very impressive.
