Jeff Bezos had some crazy talk for Charlie Rose at the end of a 60 Minutes segment: Amazon is working to deliver some items in 30 minutes or less via unmanned, aerial drones. It’s not April Fool’s Day; Amazon tweeted a link to a picture...Show More Summary
It sounds like an April Fools' joke, but this is totally real. Amazon just revealed a shock-inducing plan to get delivery times down to a mere 30 minutes by using an army of aerial drones. The service is still in R&D, but was teased Sunday night on 60 Minutes by CEO Jeff Bezos in what amounted to a lengthy Amazon infomercial. Show More Summary
Nope, this isn’t an April’s fools joke. It’s just like getting a present from a sponsor in The Hunger Games! We’re excited to share Prime Air – something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab. The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers’ hands in […]
We wrote excitedly about the PAL-V One back in early April, 2012. In retrospect, we should have been more careful about the fact that video of the vehicle’s maiden flight was uploaded to YouTube on April Fools’ Day, but we have a little saying in this business: “Write it really fast and then if stuff is wrong, fix it later.

Not, it's not April Fool's Day, although it might be a bit foolish to think of this supercar as anything but vaporware. The Devel Sixteen was unveiled at the 2013 Dubai Motor Show with the promise of 5,000 horsepower from a sixteen-cylinder engine. That's the power of roughly four Bugatti Veyron Super Sports, and they each have four turbochargers...
Good to have gotten that one out of the way already. (Actually, I wrote it a few months ago. This post is itself in the monthlong+ queue.) I don’t know how easy it is to search this blog by date to find the Fools posts from previous years. The post I’ve already written next year’s April Fools post! appeared first on Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science.
Where can I get that Wrecking Ball pumpkin, and what's that last guy's problem? Halloween and April Fool's Day are the two days a year Western Civilization designates as open season for scaring our fellow citizens, and so it is appropriate that we recognize those who excel on our culturally-designated malarkey days.

Yacht builder Strand Craft is converting a Shelby GT500 into a station wagon. No, it isn't April fools' day yet.
Arduino fans, this project turns TVs on when you want them off. It makes a perfect April Fools' Day joke or gag gift—or, in the spirit of Evil Week, use it anytime of year to drive people crazy. You can hide it in something inconspicuous, and assuming you already have an Arduino and tools, it costs less than $1.50 to make. Read more...
Just because it will be Halloween on Thursday doesn't mean Houston head coach Tony Levine can't celebrate April Fool's a little bit early, too. With Houston hosting South Florida on Thursday night, Levine decided to play a little prank on his team, revealing that the team would be wearing a new uniform to celebrate the holiday.

April Fool's Day is for amateurs. Halloween is the holiday for serious troublemakers. It's a far better occasion for playing tricks, because the days are cold and dark, and everyone is thinking about ghosts and ghouls, but nobody isShow More Summary
The RePEc blog: Following a successful beta testing, a fantasy league is now live on IDEAS. It all started with an April Fool’s post on this blog that many found to be a great idea. We will see now whether this is true. As we do not have a publishing...
Enter The Dominatrix was originally announced for Saints Row The Third, then turned into a full sequel, now it's DLC again. I think Volition found the perfect way to include their crazy story that began as an April Fool's joke. Read more...
A couple years back BMW made an E92 M3 into a pickup truck as part of an April Fool's prank. That truck was excellent, but I kind of prefer its older brother, the E46 M3 truck, that's drifting its brains out in this video. Read more...

Very few series out there would turn an April Fool’s joke into actual content, but then again, very few series are Saints Row. “Enter the Dominatrix” was previously announced as a stand-alone $30 expansion pack for Saints Row the Third. It was meant to be a wacky turn of events where aliens invade Steelport, and [...]

If there’s anything worse than sexism, it’s pranks. April Fool’s Day is the worst day in the history of holidays because it convinces people that anyone can be hilarious by lying about something, or making someone eat something they usually wouldn’t want to eat, or scaring someone who would prefer to not be scared.
