April Fools’ Day: Why Is It Prime Time for Pranks?

4/1/2013 By:

This National Geographic article not only has information and links to April Fools’ Day hoaxes, but also information about the Ig Nobel Prizes which recognize the fact that truth is often stranger than fiction. The internet has hatched many hoaxes, and photographs can be manipulated to show sharks attacking helicopters. Be sure to read about how Alabama changes the value of Pi, the spaghetti harvest in Switzerland, and the hoax of the Piltdown Man. Remember that famous quote, “trust, but verify,” especially on April 1.
