On further reflection it struck me, just now, suddenly.

There IS something I hadn't thought of before. Seriously folks. It just hit me, just now.

We can't know everything so since that is the case how do we know god does not exist?

Seriously, I do not want to spend eternity burning in hell. What if I am wrong? What if Jesus did die for me to save me?

I've been so busy fighting things I have no absolute knowledge of that it never hit me, until just now, that I could be in trouble.

This is really scary.

And how do either you or the pope know that it is not Mumbo Jumbo god of the Congo?

 

Make sure you get the right answer or you will be sorry.

I don't know, but I had this sudden fear that scared the shit out of me. Seriously, I have never had such a scary feeling like if I don't change, I am fucked.

I am not kidding. One second I am on their ass and then BOOM, like something came over me. It was so intense, so real.

Brian, you're kidding right?  Basically Pascals Wager here.  You're right we don't know, neither do theists.  Until someone knows the only logical position is abstaining from belief.  If you want to believe in God simply because you don't know for sure that there is no god then you must believe in ALL possible gods to cover your bases.

You dicks, I had Bob PM you to play along! You weren't supposed to spoil it so fucking fast.

I fell for this on the AN when a woman named Pennycentury posted on April First had me going for a week before I noticed the day.

I was like, "How could this happen."

DAMN YOU FUCKERS!

I was going to come back with, "I know Pascal's wager. I simply cant explain it. I was suddenly overcome with shaking and someone saying don't do this Brian it is wrong. And right then my cat jumped on my lap and gave me a puzzled look and my dog was wimpering licking me as if I had wounds and I was shaking the entire time"

BUT DAMN YOU GUYS, YOU SPOILED TO FUCKING QUICK!

This sucks because I was really hoping Jean would pipe in.

But now that this thread has started lets post our best practical jokes, April First related or not.

I got this guy really good, a passenger in my car. We had just left a friends house and the friend followed us in his car. You know that the passenger cant see in the rear view if it is adjusted to the driver.

ANWHO we pulled up to a red light and we heard a loud honk behind us. My friend coundn't see but we both had that sudden jarring reaction to the honk. I looked in the rear view and to my passenger and in a split second decided to pull a prank on my friend in the passenger seat.

I rolled down the window and shouted, "WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE", my passenger was like "WTF" because he didn't know who was behind me and thought I was shouting at a stranger.

I started to open the door while still cussing and my friend slapped his hand on my chest and shouted "NO BRIAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING"

He thought I was going to start a fight with a complete stranger, and if anyone knows me, that is the last thing I would do. But the look on his face was priceless when he thought I went off the deep end.

What are your best pranks?

No actually it was also timing because I also could have come back with. NO NO NO, I know what day it is but I am really serious.

But I am not kidding. Penny really scared the shit out of me, because she was tough as nails and for her to suddenly go "I cant explain it, but I have to do it" It was jarring and she pulled it off like a pro. She kept it going for a week.

Actually you should have asked "Surely you are kidding"

And I would respond, "No I am not kidding, and don't call me Shirley"

And if it is any comfort to even my theist detractors whom aren't assholes like Jean, my co-workers tease me to no end every day.

I made the mistake of telling them about my trip to the vet with my cat and dog, back then. The vet examined both of them and found that the cat had herpes and the dog had a yeast infection. Try telling them what the vet said in the truth that it was not species transferable. Now there is a running joke to this day that I am more into my pets than most people.

I get jokes about Animal Planet being my porn channel.

If anyone has ever worked

If anyone has ever worked for a pizza joint a classic joke to play on newbies is to get them to go into the cooler and look for the "dough patch repair kit".

You are slapping dough and you get a hole in it, and act in a panic and turn to the newbie, "Dude I need your help go into the cooler and get me the dough patch repair kit"

I fell for it, only to later pull it on someone else.

You should have attributed it to a theist specifically, like that new poor fucker that's a snake charmer or sum such shit calling all us fools for using scientifical (sic) guesses.  Something like... This (insert numnuts name) convinced me.  I repent, and take (insert deity here) into my heart as saviour.  Smiling  

He would have been so proud Smiling lol

Well, someone I know from another forum has claimed a great senior prank.

 

He broke into his school late at night and released three pigs into the building. Before he did that, he used washable paint to number them 1, 2 and 4. According to him, it took a week before the school board decided that there was no pig #3.

Thats horrible, but funny.

We had June outside graduation. The important staff of course were on a stage with tables and they had water pitchers. The entire class had marbles. You had the option of handing your marble off to the principle, but most ended up throwing their marbles into the water pitchers.

My best joke was I called my sister from my house, but told her I was driving. Then I played an fx of a car crash using my pc and screamed and hung up.

I called her hours later with a beep beep fx in the background and weakly asked her to take care of my wife, to take her in and support her (she hates my wife and my wife doesn't work).
