FTFY. Now go to your room and chill the fuck out already. It's hard to believe, I know, but some of us AREN'T so hopelessly addicted to the internet that any disruption or anomaly in the same old dreck every day — no matter how small, limited, or blatantly and predictably scheduled — is a complete disaster worth endlessly kvetching over.

Reading Slashdot comments on April Fool's Day is one of those things that make me realize that I'm not nearly as stressed out or obsessive as some of you whiny bitches out there, and that makes me feel better about myself. Aaaaaahhhhh...

I react to the issue of websites doing stupid things for April 1 with "meh.. time to do something else" but for some reason that pisses people off, they get angry and they think I'm "bitching and moaning".
