On this day in history
Today, Farvardin 12 (April 1), the Islamic Republic of Iran marks another milestone.
IRNA congratulates the entire nation on this auspicious day.
On April 1, 1979 Iran became an Islamic Republic through a plebiscite in which voters overwhelmingly (98.2 percent) voted for this form of government.
I remember thinking back then that 98% was a pretty good majority. 8-|
I've been surfing around the April Fool's Day jokes today--I think some people have been waiting WEEKS to post some of these--especially new "softwares" like this one
. And yes, I fell for that link hook, line, and sinker.
was probably my favorite, though. I loved the description of the site:
Pin All Your Romantic Hopes on Google
When you think about it, love is just another search problem. And we’ve thought about it. A lot. Google Romance™ is our solution.
Google Romance is a place where you can post all types of romantic information and, using our Soulmate Search™, get back search results that could, in theory, include the love of your life. Then we'll send you both on a Contextual DateTM, which we'll pay for while delivering to you relevant ads that we and our advertising partners think will help produce the dating results you're looking for.
With Google Romance, you can:
* Upload your profile – tell the world who you are, or, more to the point, who you’d like to think you are, or, even more to the point, who you want others to think you are.
* Search for love in all (or at least a statistically significant majority of) the right places with Soulmate Search, our eerily effective psychographic matchmaking software.
* Endure, via our Contextual Dating option, thematically appropriate multimedia advertising throughout the entirety of your free date.
Sounds great, eh? Make sure you take the tour
! And then I looked at the link for posting profiles:
Post multiple profiles with
a bulk upload file, you sleaze.
Happy April Fool's, everyone!! I'm thinking that I should go into work this afternoon and announce that I am quitting and going here
. And considering I was filling out the application this morning....... I only hope they don't consider my application as the best April Fool's joke of the day.
My best April Fool's joke came back in 1992. I already knew I was pregnant with #2 at that time, but I hadn't told anyone yet, since I didn't want to get booted off my job for the duration the way I had with #1 a few years before--I couldn't afford to take the pay cut again just because somebody didn't like a pregnant woman on the job. Anyway, somehow
, word got out that day that I was "in the family way". (Don't ask me
how :-" ) Amazing how fast news like that travels, too!! I just grinned a lot until somebody noticed the date....so...they thought I was...then they thought I wasn't....but I really was, lol.
Sometimes I crack myself up. ;-)
