Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

There is going to be a play date with someone, damn it.

I don't like April Fool's Day. The idea of a scheduled prank day was nice thirty years ago, or amongst children who do not have access to calendars. Nowadays, everyone knows what day it is, and are on the lookout for pranks. As such, major sites like google don't really prank anyone any more. They just fuck with the settings of their websites.

So any way, only incredibly gullible people get pranked nowadays, and those people are probably amongst the most vulnerable of society, so screwing with them is just an asshole move. Then there are "pranks" which are just malicious acts committed by mean bastards that just enjoy torturing their "friends".

Finally, there are the lame office "pranks" which are just craft projects that managers encourage to build team cohesion.

I'm just a cranky guy, ok? Don't prank me. I will withhold doing you a favor if you do.
