    there are too many to mention, but one of my favorites was "the great spaghetti harvest" that was broadcast on the BBC in 1957:

    BBC has had some good ones. In 1976 they reported that all the planets would align at 9:47 which would momentarily negate Earth's gravity. So if you jumped at that exact moment you would get a sensation of weightlessness. Hundreds of people called in claiming that they felt the effects.

    Oh, oh -- I may have missed the deadline for April 1st. (ha) But have you ever heard that you can stand an egg up on its tip, on the Spring solstice, which has something to do with the earth's axis, & gravitational pull. I had vaguely heard of it, but never seen it done. Then a few days ago, I walked into my kitchen to see 5 eggs on the counter top, all standing on their tip, all by themselves. What do you think caused it?
