When I went to check my G-mail this morning I found this



A different kind of company name

4/01/2010 12:01:00 AM
Early last month the mayor of Topeka, Kansas stunned the world by announcing that his city was changing its name to Google. We’ve been wondering ever since how best to honor that moving gesture. Today we are pleased to announce that as of 1AM (Central Daylight Time) April 1st, Google has officially changed our name to Topeka.
Name change

for about a full minute I thought they were serious..until I remembered what today is

Appears that this one is not an April Fool's joke - it's a publicity gimmick and only temporary.

Well, I put this thread up this AM: www.abovetopsecret.com... [Wireless Brain controls for medical reasons] as a serious post however, it was jumped on as A.F. joke.

I did a little backgrounding etc and I am pretty sure it isn't but..... let me know what you think.

I can assure nothing will beat this particular news.

DIMENSIONAL PORTAL INCURSION AT THE LHC!


A secret international task force of special-forces troops is said to be assembling at the Collider to deal with a 'response' from the fifth dimension to a hyperdimensional energy discharge emitted from the LHC.

The opening of the dimensional gateway is being kept subject to a governmental news blackout to avoid a global panic. However, keen amateur LHC-watching enthusiasts, familiar with the many internal websites used to run and monitor the mighty Collider, stumbled across imagery last night confirming that a "supersymmetric" event had taken place following a particle collision inside the huge, subterranean ATLAS instrument cavern.
