Obligatory April Fools Post
Sometimes it’s hard to tell the true stories from the made-up ones.

third graders are expelled for plotting to do in the teacher.
… and even weirder in space, especially when a robot takes over the International Space Station.

Mets have a rookie who throws a 168 mph fastball.
Don’t forget the accomplishments of our scientists either, especially when Scientists build photon guns. Can a photon torpedo be far behind? (They are Star Trek fans, after all.)
Our politicians are athletes too! But the news is that Sen. Obama’s low bowling score leaves him in danger of losing citizenship. And regardless of how that turns out, Sen.
