    Imagine being able to see your bullet hitting the target as it hits its target. Vortex and Hornady released a video of a new "bullet-cam" and it had many talking, whether they believed it or not. Some new technology that would hypothetically change the hunting and filming game forever from Vortex and Hornady took the outdoor world by storm recently. News like this would change the industry…if only it were true, lol. An epic April Fool's prank cooked up an incredibly cool product, outstanding visuals and dialogue, and some great acting from employees. Vortex and Hornady released the video that...

    EXCLUSIVE: Francis bans marriages for 50 days An explosive story is out today, from a new publication out of Rome. We bring you the English language exclusive. So much to unpack in future posts and analysis. For now, we simply reprint the two articles. What a way to kick off April. (Note: Our agreement with the author was that we post this not before Midnight. Since we're on Coordinated Universal Time, our readers in the United States get an early look, technically before April begins at 12a.m.): All may repost, but you must site Rorate Caeli as the source: Happy...
  • Swedish and Norwegian newspapers ditch April Fools' due to fake news

    Swedish and Norwegian newspapers announced on Friday that they would refrain from the tradition of publishing April Fools’ Day jokes this year over fears that it might spread “fake news”. Magnus Karlsson, editor-in-chief at Swedish daily Smålandsposten said on its website that he doesn’t want the newspaper’s brand “to be spread with a potentially viral and erroneous story”. “We work with real news. Even on April 1st,” he said. […] In neighboring Norway, the largest media organizations such as public broadcaster NRK, and newspapers Aftenposten, VG and Dagbladet have also abandoned this old tradition. NRK said local newspapers would follow...

    I am letting you be among the first to know. It is true. I am leaving the Catholic Church. I want you to know that this has not been a decision made in haste or without serious and intense research and consideration. But I can no longer remain in a church that I no longer believe in. Let me explain. I will be writing more about this soon, but for now let me just say there are five main reasons why I am leaving the Catholic Church: 1. I believe the sole rule of faith for Christians has to be...

    This morning, a high-ranking Chick-Fil-A employee leaked the news to a small group of bloggers that the restaurant will soon open seven days a week. (Silent scream!) Historically, the famed Southern chicken chain has adamantly refused to open on Sundays, citing a conflict with its Christian values, but widespread customer demand, impending expansion plans, and a still-flagging economy have caused executives to reconsider that policy. “Our customers have been asking for this for a long time, and we just can’t say no any longer,” the source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, explained. The expanded hours will apply to each...

He said: “I think there’s many of us who want to embrace Trump”.

    During today’s unscheduled press conference President Barack Obama responded to a wide range of questions varying from race relations in the United States to the Russian incursion into Ukraine. The president spent over an hour answering questions from the White House press contingent, offering the frankest assessment of his administration’s policies to date. With regard to Israel the president came down strongly on the side of Israel and directed a stern warning against the Iranian regime in Tehran, advising the ruling mullahs that the United States stood shoulder to shoulder with Israel, our staunchest ally in the Middle East.

    On an unbelievably busy news day, no story is bigger than the shocking resignation of Barack Hussein Obama and his subsequent hasty helicopter escape from the roof of the White House. Early morning television viewers were surprised to find their programs interrupted for an emergency announcement, during which the ashen-faced and possibly drug-fueled president spoke in rambling, frequently cryptic sentence fragments about "the sweet, sweet call to prayer," "dog-flavored shave ice," the merits of Titleist golf balls and, most puzzlingly, his declaration that "Mike is done pretending to be Michelle." He then told America to go (and we paraphrase...

    Will a warming world eventually kill off roe deer in France? That question is being raised in light of new research indicating that the animals are having a hard time adapting to climate change. In a study published Tuesday in the open-access journal PLOS Biology, researchers tracked the births and subsequent survival of roe deer fawns in France's Champagne region. They noted that spring vegetation on which the adult deer depend for food was starting to flourish two weeks earlier that it did nearly three decades ago, due to gradual warming. But although spring was arriving earlier, the animals' birth...

    The proposed move will take the Pentagon from the banks of the Potomac River to northwest Kansas. WASHINGTON (April 1, 2010) -- Top Army officials unveiled plans early today to relocate the massive Pentagon building to the western part of Kansas sometime this summer. "This move will be a huge undertaking, but we determined it was a necessary step as we realign our force structure," said one of the Army's top generals. "Once we started investigating the possibility of the move, we determined that it was not only critical to our efforts, but that it would be good for our...

    IN a major behind-the-scenes blowout, President BARACK OBAMA and first lady MICHELLE waged their worst White House fight ever over her lavish vacation trip to China! Sources tell The ENQUIRER that Obama exploded when Mi­chelle refused to cancel her pricey getaway – even after White House advisers warned him that the first couple’s six-year string of extravagant vacations had already drained the U.S. Trea­sury of a whopping $150 million in tax­payers’ money. Michelle arrived in Beijing with her mother, Marian Robinson, and the Obamas’ daughters, 15-year-old Malia and Sasha, 12, on March 20 for a planned seven-day, three-city trip. They...

    Google might not be a scrappy startup anymore, but despite being one of the biggest companies in the world, they have managed to hold on to a unique sense of humour and that's most apparent on April 1 every year. The company has a long tradition of April Fools' Day jokes, and different teams like Chrome and Maps and Gmail all come up with their own pranks so there's a lot to choose from just out of Google. Last year, more than a few people actually believed that Google Nose - a sniff search system - was a real thing....

    On March 31st, Easter Sunday, Google posted as their logo-based 'Doodle' a picture honoring far-left union activist Cesar Chavez. This was done instead of honoring the most important Christian holiday in America. Predictably, this led to a large and vocal backlash of Christians and conservatives who were angered that Google paraded out a leftwing icon, rather than acknowledge their Holy Day. The next day, on April Fools Day, I posted this thread, "Google Apologizes to Christians For Easter Cesar Chavez 'Doodle'". Sadly, it was an April Fools Joke.... and while I was delighted at the number of people I fooled,...

    In an unusual move conservative chat site Free Republic announced today that it has banned all parody postings. According to a representative of Free Republic, "We had to do something. An informal survey showed us fully 75% of all postings were amateur attempts at parody." He went on "And it is a stretch to call these things parody. Parody isn't just making up crazy stuff and putting it into the mouths of people you don't like." A frequent poster on the web site, DManA approves of the move. "Everyone loves to be tricked, fooled, and made a fool of. That's...

    A bizarre case leaves an Arizona community questioning their perception of reality and a police department wondering if Glock is the right sidearm for its officers. Last week was a milestone for Arizona police officer Martin Walker. March 27 marked his twentieth year with the Dilbert Police Department and the day that he was first issued his Glock semi automatic pistol. “In 20 years, thousands of rounds, I never had a jam, malfunction, hell, any real problem with it until [that day],” Walker said and, on the verge of tears, added. “I don’t know I could trust a Glock again...

    It's no "U.S. Army training special cat unit," but the White House on Monday rolled out an April Fools' joke video starring "Kid President"—9-year-old viral video maker Robby Novak. "It looks like you were expecting somebody else," Novak, dressed in a dark suit and wearing a red power tie, says from the podium in the White House briefing room. “April Fools on all y’all! I’m Kid President and I hope everyone has an awesome day. It’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance. I made it to the White House! I’m here! Peace.” (Peace? Or budding Richard...
