Einstein, Newton, and Pascal are hanging out one afternoon. Einstein is bored, so he suggests, “Let’s play hide-and-seek! I’ll be it!”

The others agree, so Einstein begins counting. Pascal runs off right away to find a place to hide. But Newton merely takes out a piece of chalk and draws a square around him.

When Einstein opens his eyes, he immediately spots Newton standing in front of him. He says, “I found you, Newton!”

Newton replies, “No, you found one Newton per square meter- you found Pascal!”

At the exact same second, outside a restaurant, 
the wind was sweeping in under a tablecloth, 
causing the glasses to dance without anybody noticing it.

"The ultimate April Fools’ joke was to launch something kind of crazy on April 1st and have it still exist on April 2nd.”
Happy 10th anniversary!

In light of Facebook’s acquisition of Oculus, a maker of virtual-reality hardware, Vauhini Vara explores how the company plans to sell you on the new technology: http://nyr.kr/1rzzueJ

“Zuckerberg writes about how ‘you’ might use Oculus: to attend a sporting event, learn alongside classmates, or visit with your doctor. (He uses the word ‘you’ seven times in his blog post.) These examples—carefully chosen, no doubt—make the case that virtual-reality hardware can make you feel more ‘present’ in your relationships, rather than alienating you from them.”
