happy april the first.

Well played, The Guardian:

The Guardian to switch from print entirely to Twitter.

A mammoth project is also under way to rewrite the whole of the newspaper’s archive, stretching back to 1821, in the form of tweets. Major stories already completed include “1832 Reform Act gives voting rights to one in five adult males yay!!!”; “OMG Hitler invades Poland, allies declare war see tinyurl.com/b5x6e for more”; and “JFK assassin8d @ Dallas, def. heard second gunshot from grassy knoll WTF?”

(Via Mur Lafferty…on Twitter, of course.)

    Epic win. I approve.

    Total non-seq~ I seem to recall an image recently on one of a short list of blogs I read that had multiple ballistic gel cross sections of various handgun cal’s. Does anyone here remember that image, and/or what blog/when it was posted?

    Jolly good. Conversely, I think it would be an excellent April Fools prank for The Onion to publish an actual news story.
