I considered a number of options for today’s post:
Craft a humorous piece of some sort;
Not craft a humorous piece of some sort and claim that [insert group I disagree with] did things so absurd that I didn’t want to give them ideas;
Not craft a humorous piece of some sort and make no reference to the date.
However, as I noticed a certain amount of cruelty within the pranks appearing in various best April’s Fool jokes articles this year, I decided instead to take a more self-deprecating route. Therefore, I present one way in which lawyers might ruin the future science-fiction promised us.
