Personally, if I were single and getting married tomorrow, I would forgo a traditional wedding and opt for getting married on a cruise ship. And no, not because of allrepparttar nice placesrepparttar 118063 ship would take me, but because getting married on a cruise ship means thatrepparttar 118064 honeymoon begins just as soon as you walk back to your cabin. The honeymoon isrepparttar 118065 highlight ofrepparttar 118066 whole marriage service forrepparttar 118067 male, and also happens to berepparttar 118068 item that he typically has to waitrepparttar 118069 longest to enjoy, so getting married on a cruise ship eliminates this particular problem.

There have been many hoaxes and some famous mistakes by media corporations in reporting stories in error. There are also several April Fool’s Day spoofs onrepparttar internet. Sometimes these seemingly innocent pranks can cause financial damage or panic when things are taken too far.

In Birmingham on April 1st 1986, a group of students became convinced thatrepparttar 105582 Black plague had returned torepparttar 105583 city. Such wasrepparttar 105584 level of confusion and clever manipulation of a drama class and its students, that hospitals inrepparttar 105585 city were put on full alert and 900 students were sent home byrepparttar 105586 governor. The full scale ofrepparttar 105587 hoax was not revealed untilrepparttar 105588 following day when embarrassed school committee members facedrepparttar 105589 media and issued an apology to parents.
