Word that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) - the most powerful atomsmasher ever assembled by the human race - caused a hyperdimensional portal leading to an inhabited parallel universe to open up deep beneath Switzerland, in what may be the opening move of a cross-continuum invasion campaign, is yesterday's news. Which is to say, it's not really news at all.

But it's certainly worth a read. You can browse all our 2010 April Fools gags below - though it's not nearly as fun when you know they're gags. Of course, some carry more truth than others:
