The Economist printed edition features an article about the "lessons learnt from Argentina’s 100 years of decline". My Argentinian friend are going to celebrate or rage over this article spiced with Madonna's lyric. The article is quite short. Here some quotes:

"The Argentines remain perhaps the best-looking people on the planet."

"its cooking is based on taking the world’s best meat and burning it" (only an English outlet would dare to categorize asado as such)

"The whole wealth so swiftly gathered in the paper values of previous years vanished. The prosperity of millions of American homes had grown upon a gigantic structure of inflated redit, not suddenly proved phantom. Apart from the nation-wide speculation in shares which even the most famous banks had encouraged by easy loans, a vast system of purchase by instalment of houses, furniture, cars and numberless kinds of household conveniences and indulgences had grown up. All no fell together."
-- Churchill on the 1929 economic crisis

He not only forsaw the singularity and technological unemployment, but also Spiderman: 

"There is general agreement among the sages of the peoples of the past ages, that if we are granted power commensurate with our will, we are more likely to use it wrongly than to use it rightly, more likely to use it stupidly than to use it intelligently."

20 hours later I realized that today was April 1st. After regretting all the pranks I didn't do, the next idea I had was to run to see what google did this year.
I did not get disappointed

"I will take a look later. Much much later. Because I'm Ukrainian and we have revolution right now. Sorry".
People should use this as automatic reply.

Right now there was 1 second without any sound. I had the feeling human knowledge stagnated for that time.

This months' edition of National Geographic is the first ever (as far as I recall) to display a picture taken with a smartphone.
It is a great one of course.
