April 1st Strikes Again

Alas, I didn't have the chance to search out nearly as many easter eggs this year, but some of these may still be findable.  Google had two gags this year that I noticed - Google Nose (which if that link is dead was just what it sounds like. :) ), and Treasure Map in Google Maps.

Glenn Glazer mentioned an entry by EFF via Facebook which probably IS still there, including stuff like the following:

FBI Issues Reflection Warnings

Starting this week, department stores will begin affixing "FBI Anti-Piracy" stickers to mirrors, warning consumers that placing a reflective object in the same room as a television could constitute a violation of U.S. copyright law. In a related lawsuit, EFF is representing Dana Auerbach, a ballet instructor who was caught watching The Black Swan in her dance studio while on lunch break. She faces a $750 to $150,000 penalty for each of her infinite charges of infringement.

My thanks to Wayne Joseph Borean for this one:
MPAA Chairman Former Senator Chris Dodd Joins Pirate Party, Announces 2016 Presidential Bid
And doubtless blows a gasket when he finds out he's been April spoofed.  Ah well..

And finally there's today's Astronomical Photo of the Day which kind of has to be seen to be believed (I've linked to the permanent link so it ought to still be there).  Follow the links, it's fun!

Thanks for Sharing!
The Professora picked up a copy of USA Today while on campus; it had a half-page ad for "Scope Bacon" mouthwash--"for breath that sizzles!" We gotta FW that to Mondo the Possum Slayer & Auntie Binary.

One more easter egg from Google: If you launched the Chrome browser yesterday, you got an update announcement of a new improved spell chacker update.
