    Πρωταπριλιά του 2015

    Εδώ βάζουμε τα πρωταπριλιάτικα; Εν πάση περιπτώσει, αυτό μ' άρεσε πολύ, από την ιστοσελίδα του CERN:

    Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider just recently started testing the accelerator for running at the higher energy of 13 TeV, and already they have found new insights into the fundamental structure of the universe. Though four fundamental forces – the strong force, the weak force, the electromagnetic force and gravity – have been well documented and confirmed in experiments over the years, CERN announced today the first unequivocal evidence for the Force. “Very impressive, this result is,” said a diminutive green spokesperson for the laboratory.

    “The Force is what gives a particle physicist his powers,” said CERN theorist Ben Kenobi of the University of Mos Eisley, Tatooine. “It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us; and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.”

    Though researchers are as yet unsure what exactly causes the Force, students and professors at the laboratory have already started to harness its power. Practical applications so far include long-distance communication, influencing minds, and lifting heavy things out of swamps.

    Kenobi says he first started teaching the ways of the Force to a young lady who was having trouble revising for her particle-physics exams. "She said that I was her only hope," says Kenobi. "So I just kinda took it from there. I designed an experiment to detect the Force, and passed on my knowledge."

    Kenobi's seminal paper "May the Force be with EU" – a strong argument that his experiment should be built in Europe – persuaded the CERN Council to finance the installation of dozens of new R2 units for the CERN data centre*. These plucky little droids are helping physicists to cope with the flood of data from the laboratory's latest experiment, the Thermodynamic Injection Energy (TIE) detector, recently installed at the LHC.

    "We're very pleased with this new addition to CERN's accelerator complex," said data analyst Luke Daniels of human-cyborg relations. "The TIE detector has provided us with plenty of action, and what's more it makes a really cool sound when the beams shoot out of it."

    But the research community is divided over the discovery. Dark-matter researcher Dave Vader was unimpressed, breathing heavily in disgust throughout the press conference announcing the results, and dismissing the cosmological implications of the Force with the quip "Asteroids do not concern me".

    Rumours are growing that this rogue researcher hopes to delve into the Dark Side of the Standard Model, and could even build his own research station some day. With the academic community split, many are tempted by Vader's invitations to study the Dark Side, especially researchers working with red lasers, and anyone really with an evil streak who looks good in dark robes.

    "We hope to continue to study the Force, and perhaps use it to open doors with our minds and fly around and stuff," said TIE experimentalist Fan Buoi. "Right now, to be honest, I don't really care how it works. The theory department have some crackpot idea about life forms called midi-chlorians, but frankly I think that poorly thought out explanations like that just detract from how cool the Force really is."

    With the research ongoing, many at CERN are already predicting that the Force will awaken later this year.

    *Sources close to the Data Centre later revealed that these were not the droids they were looking for.

    Είναι ένα φόρουμ που το λένε Λεξιλογία. Καλομηνιά!


    Κι ένα περσινό πρωταπριλιάτικο που δεν το έπιασε κανείς:

    Θεωρητικά, θεωρία και πράξη είναι το ίδιο πράγμα. Στην πράξη, όμως, διαφέρουν.
    When this you see, remember me and bear me in your mind, let all the world say what they may, speak of me as you find.

    Με όλα αυτά που έχει η Ελλάδα, τι να την κάνει την Πρωταπριλιά;

    Τα καλύτερα πρωταπριλιάτικα του διαδικτύου
    http://edition.cnn.com/2015/04/01/wo...ls-day-pranks/

    Με κορυφαίο το Pac-Man στους χάρτες της Google. Μόνο που το Pac-Man στους χάρτες είναι μια ωραία πλάκα που ήρθε για να μείνει (κάτι σαν την πρωταπριλιάτικη Λεξιλογία του 2008, δηλαδή).

    Και σύνοψη πρωταπριλιάτικων στο in.gr, από όπου επιλέγω το πρώτο:

    Ο Έλληνας υπουργός Οικονομικών βρήκε την οριστική λύση στη κρίση χρέους και στο σύνολο της οικονομίας της χώρας υποστηρίζει η Commerzbank, μέσω της επιβολής εφάπαξ ειδικής άδειας χρήσης, ύψους 1 ευρώ, στους χρήστες του... Πυθαγόρειου Θεωρήματος στην Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση. Τα έσοδα, από την 1η Απριλίου 570 μέχρι σήμερα, με επιτόκιο 4%, θα ανέλθουν στα 107.443.980.002.362.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 ευρώ, σύμφωνα με τους υπολογισμούς της Commerzbank.

    Ας δούμε όμως εδώ και τη διαφορετική αντιμετώπιση. Εμείς ζητάμε σε ανάλογα δημοσιεύματα αποζημίωση για θεωρητικές ιδέες, αυτοί φοβούνται να ζητήσουμε ποσοστά για πρακτικά πράγματα...
    Wer die Wahrheit nicht weiß, der ist bloß ein Dummkopf. Aber wer sie weiß, und sie eine Lüge nennt, der ist ein Verbrecher!
    We base decisions on facts, not superstition, not what our ideology tells us but rather what we can observe

    δεῖ δὲ χρημάτων, καὶ ἄνευ τούτων οὐδὲν ἔστι γενέσθαι τῶν δεόντων
    Η Ελλάδα είναι Ευρώπη, η Ευρώπη είναι Ελλάδα!

    Α, και νόμιζα ότι τους έχουν χακέψει

    April Fools Video Prank in Math Class



    A college math professor brilliantly pranked his students and won the internet, Business Insider, April 3, 2015

    A college math and computer science professor at Biola University in California had the best April Fools' Day prank of 2015.

    The resulting YouTube video, which is going viral on Reddit, shows a lecture that professor Matthew Weathers gave to his class with a projector. At the end of his lecture, he pulled up a YouTube video of one of his classes to show the students that they were also available online.

    Unexpectedly, the video counterpart picks a fight with the real Weathers, and they begin to argue with each other.
