    Any guesses on what little April Fool's changes are going to happen to the forums this year?

    I say the High School popularity hierarchy (ie. Geeks = Newbies, Jocks = Demi-Gods, etc)

    How would you rank them? Plus are there enough groups? Plus, I though HS was a huge waste of time. And where did I (the Floater who could go from the geek UNIX lab to the weightroom with the football team to eating lunch with the drama kids to stopping to talk to the stoners on my way to the store to grab a midafternoon snack to eat in the geek UNIX lab later on) fit in?

    Dude, what are you talking about?
    We've never had little games on this forum, ever.

    I know that I, for one, hate fun.

    I thought you band girls were all about fun? I saw that band girl documentary, American Pie, so I know all about the kinds of fun you all have.

    Interesting, although potentially difficult to manage. If we assume that 601 > 6502 > Member > Newbie, then how do we make HS equivalencies?

    That is, who determines if Geek > Jock, or Stoner > Debate Team, or that Geek = Debate Team, or whatever?

    Since tomorrow kicks off opening weekend in baseball, perhaps a tribute to that:

    Newbie => On the DL
    Member => Ball-boy
    Regular => Bench Warmer
    6502 => Pinch Hitter
    65816 => Utility Player
    65832 => Starter
    68000 => Trainer
    68010 => 3rd Base Coach
    68020 => 1st Base Coach
    68030 => Bullpen Coach
    68040 => Hitting Coach
    601 => Pitching Coach
    603 => Bench Coach
    Demi-Goddess, Demi-God or Contributor => Manager
    (Moderator) suffix => Umpire
    macrumors god => Commissioner

    Then again, it'll be Saturday so I may not even notice.

    I think it would be an insult to Arn to equate him to Bud Selig.

    Hm. Guess the band geeks from my high school weren't as high class as your symphony. :p

    And what is all this talk of games?!

    I think we should convert MacRumors into a Windows Vista fan site for April Fools Day. :D

    I don't wanna have my avatar changed to a START button, especially if it's green.
