When I close my eyes, all I can see is little black dots and an afterimage of the piano keyboard that has been burned into my retinas.

I should take a lesson from Archimedes! :lol:

I understand the part of taking a lesson from Archimedes, but I don't understand why large mirrors and sun-light have to do with a piano.

Here the custom for April Fool is close to the one used in France : we cut fish silhouettes in paper, then we use a little piece of scotch tape and we glue them in the backs of people. :D

Because in french this day is called : Poisson d'avril. 8)

Of course, any type of hoax is welcomed as well. But I think the fish glued in the back thing is typically French.

Strange. Funny...but strange. :)

He had his "Eureka!" moment while taking a much needed break. He took a bath, he relaxed and Eureka...

According to Vitruvius, a new crown in the shape of a laurel wreath had been made for King Hieron, and Archimedes was asked to determine whether it was of solid gold, or whether silver had been added by a dishonest goldsmith. Archimedes had to solve the problem without damaging the crown, so he could not melt it down in order to measure its volume. While taking a bath, he noticed that the level of the water rose as he got in. He realized that this effect could be used to determine the volume of the crown, and therefore its density. He then took to the streets naked, being so elated with his discovery that he forgot to dress, crying "Eureka!" ("I have found it!").

No foolin', honest!
Pete

Pete, let us know when you have that "Eureka' moment. :D
I'll be thinking of you when I take my bath.

So Pianolady, did you succeed to stick some fish in people backs without them noticing? :D

(By the way, sorry for my poor english). :wink:

Here's a funny April Fools pic I've found : 8)

That's a good one!

Nope - no fish on anybody. I did pull off a few 'stupid' jokes on family members, though. They're happy this day is almost over. :wink:

No idea what you're talking about. :?

And btw, you're another one without a picture. I wish you would add one to your bio.
Why all the mystery with some of you members out there?

Because we believe mystery makes people wonder how mysteriously mysterious we are and it adds even more mystery to our already mysterious nature. 8) :wink:

But gender has nothing to do with Chris' witty humor...at least no in this occasion. I guess it is just a mystery that adds to the barrel full of mysteries!

Mysteriousness leads to curiosity, curiosity leads to sin! :x
