An article that ran
in Red Herring Magazine declared that a
device had been developed during the Gulf
War that allowed people to send email telepathically.
This revolutionary technology called an
Orecchio (Italian for "ear") could
be implanted between a person's ear and
brain and allow them to mentally compose
a message, then hit the Send button. The
Orecchio used the TIDE communications protocol
(short for "Telepathic Internet Data
Exchange") and was developed by Yuri
Maldini, a computer genius from Estonia,
for a company called Tidal Wave Communications.
Cited as parallel
research was the Emory University study
in which researchers had implanted a device
in a quadriplegic's brain to help him move
a cursor around on a computer screen. Maldini
who once worked for U. S. Naval Intelligence,
said he was excited about future uses of
this technology including telepathic web
browsers, word processors and the ability
to receive e-mail telepathically.
At the conclusion
of the Red Herring article, the writer recalls
asking Maldini what his expectations are
for Orecchio's success. "Mr. Maldini
falls silent. He stares vacantly for several
moments out his office window and then says,
'I just sent you an email with my answer.'
Upon returning to our office, we find the
response waiting: 'It's going to be huge,'
reads the email. 'Simply huge.'"

day a year. See what those april fools have been

April and her band of fools just love the tomfoolery
on this site. From media hoaxes to pranks to gag
gifts to practical jokes this site makes me laugh
even when I'm in trouble with the law. Say, does
anyone know if April is available because I would
like to be her fool if you know what I mean. And
if not does she have a sister?

This April fools practical jokes and gag gifts
pad is a jolly good site, indeed. I perused it
over one time and laughed so hard it almost made
me pee. Then a month later, I thought I would
look up a few April fools practical jokes to play
on dear young William (and even bought a few gag
gifts) and I came back to this pad and laughed
so hard I did pee my pants. Jolly good thing I
am wearing Depends now days.

It is not knowledge that is important, but rather
imagination. And this April fools site is chocked
full of imagination. And of course knowledge.
Of course you can't deny the great gag gifts and
practical jokes you find here, either. When I
wrote my great theory I wasn't really thinking
of great media hoaxes or fart jokes but yes, now
I see that they too can apply. The jokes here
are practical and the gifts make me gag. Would
you like to see me slurp a loogie?
