** Tomorrow is April first, and many places have traditions of invented news stories designed to trick people.
If you're thinking of posting one, please consider that people are worried and anxious, and ask yourself if you really need to do an April Fools this year. **
@MicroSFF Rather than pranks, people should post videos of themselves acting like 'April Fools'
Wear a silly costume, sing a goofy song, dance like you don't care, tell a dad joke or two! Something fun& silly to cheer up others& relieve some of the boredom! Or even just silly videos& gifs not of themselves for some fun!
@MicroSFF I don't understand this - humour is a great way to help anxiety and worry; I'd probably stay away from virus related AF though.
@MicroSFF I think in the midst of a pandemic, that causes a lot of stress and that is worsened by false information, april fools are probably a very good idea.
Having a good laugh can reduce stress and being reminded to think more critical about, what you read on the internet is a good thing I'd argue.
