Every year they do something funny for April 1st lol. I'll never forget the day that every video search you tried turned out to be a rickroll.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

All of the "recommended videos" I clicked on YouTube today played upside-down. And all the titles and comments and everything were flipped too. If you click on suggestions to help with the new format, they suggest that you turn your monitor upside down, or hold your head sideways.

Firebox had some good ones, the powdered beer almost had me going for a bit (click on the pictures for more details)
