    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Anyone here have a good April fools joke played on them today? Google has a good one going, but it's nothing like last year and getting DSL though your toilet :lol:

Somewhere in this room. Right now, you're very col
LOL, Virgle....

Nothing good today. I'm rather disappointed. Think I'll pull one on the wife & kids today though. "Hey guess what? Dad got a new job today in Hawaii! We're gonna live right on the beach in a huge house that comes with the job as a perk!" Let 'em believe it for a couple hours. Then... Ha ha! April fool!

Yep. It'll be a classic.

the courtesy tone on my school's ham repeater was changed to some horrible annoying horn. The repeater threw out a message every 5 minutes saying "fix me (callsign of repeater operator)". The passwords were changed so he could not do anything about it all day.

You know what the Egg said to the Hot Water before the Egg was put in?
I might take awhile to get hard because I just got laid.

On a national talk show, the host spoke of a music station in Los Angeles, CA, that upset a bunch of listeners when the morning drive program was in Spanish.

Several years ago, a rock station (AM) in Houston whose sister station (FM classical) switched formats at midnight for a few songs. The AM listeners were amused, but one caller asked, "Who is this new artist, Rock Manninov, you are talking about? I've never heard of him" The FM station said that a few of their blue-haired listeners called and complained about having problems with their hearing aids.

Not exactly an April Fool joke, more like an Easter egg I found yesterday. Those of you having Microsoft Outlook may start a new e-mail message and just type "Where's the beer?" Spell check it.

I don't need April Fools, I'm surrounded by fools all year round. Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, stuck in the middle with you.

You tell me. I'll not spoil the surprise unless I have the only version with a sense of humor or none of you get the joke.

"It's supposed to do exactly what it did."

Prozacly!

"The poster that posted it however failed to do his part: "April fool"

I failed nothing, I said it's not an April Fool joke. Today is the second, April Fool is over and Outlook didn't go anywhere.

"You guys gear about a parachute specialist who is helping the investigation of D.B. Cooper?"

No, parachutes don't have gears. They're not investigating Cooper, they're investigating the Cooper case. Who cares about Cooper when the case has the money in it?

I'll admit I tried it twice. Once with Out look express and once with good old out look. I kept waiting for that stupid paper clip to pop up and say something like. " I see your trying to make a fool out of your self, is there someway I can help?"
