Out of the Blue

Happy April Fool's Day, the annual opportunity to make like a politician and deceive people for fun and profit. In keeping with a grand annual tradition, rather than attempting to experience the joys of prevarication at your expense by announcing that this site will henceforth be devoted to missing socks or that I'm a contestant in the next season of The Apprentice, I will attempt to collect the various geek gags that show up over the course of the day. Enjoy!
