Consoles, video cards, joysticks, ultrawide monitors and VR glasses: these are just some of the elements that make up an industry of almost 120 billion dollars and a hobby loved by many: gaming. For some it has become a full-fledged occupation, from which they secure their basic income. Universities around the world have adapted to the growth of this field, offering bachelor's and master's programs in video game technology.
However, gaming has gained a bad reputation in popular culture over time, being accused of causing addiction, psychological problems and violent behavior. However, these gaming controversies have failed to eclipse the fun, relaxation and stress relief offered by games. Bemorepanda collected some memes on this subject.

This holiday is not included in any calendar or country. However, this does not prevent people from celebrating this day on a grand scale.
Have you ever wondered where the origins of this holiday come from? Why didn't you choose another day for such a peculiar event? And not only in one country, but in many. Opinions are divided over the origin of this holiday. From this article you will learn not only about the history of April Fool's Day, but also about how residents of different countries celebrate this day, what traditions they have, and also get acquainted with the most interesting rallies that have become a real history.
Where did this date come from? There are several options for the origin of this merry holiday. Some are inclined to believe that this holiday is an echo of the ancient spring festival, the celebration of which fell on April. They played and joked a lot that day. Others think that the tradition of making fun of others dates back to the Middle Ages.
So far, there is no real evidence for any of the theories. There are many assumptions about the origin of this holiday. However, it all boils down to the fact that the source is still the medieval tradition of Europeans to arrange carnivals. Such a pagan holiday that Christians liked.
There are people who are sure that a similar holiday was celebrated in ancient Rome. They called it then the holiday of fools. Others are convinced that the origins of this event are ancient India, where the Day of Jokes fell on March 31st. There is also a third party. These are supporters of the idea that the tradition of joking came to us from the Irish.
There are some rather strange versions. For example, one of the options boils down to the fact that this holiday owes its appearance to the Neapolitan king Monterey. They say in honor of the fact that the earthquake stopped, the king was presented with a fish. A year later, Monterey began demanding the same fish. Unfortunately, it was not possible to find the exact same species, and the chef used another, which was as similar as possible to the previous one. However, the king could not be deceived, but he did not become angry, but on the contrary - laughed.
Bemorepanda collected some facts about April Fools Day.
1. The coolest draw is considered to be April 1, 1986. The bottom line was that the newspaper published an announcement about the decision to dismantle the symbol of France - the Eiffel Tower. There was a proposal to move the famous object to another location. The article in all colors described the process of dismantling the tower, in which even American helicopters were supposed to take part. After that, they wanted to assemble the tower in a horizontal position and use the cranes to raise it. The project took 6 months. The Parisians, in frustrated feelings, began to besiege the editorial office, constantly calling them. But on the second day, an article with a refutation was published.
2. The British also got it in 1860. Many Londoners received invitations to the solemn ceremony of washing the white lions before April 1st. The event was scheduled for 11 o'clock and was to take place in the Tower. The curious townspeople came at the appointed time to the appointed place. Imagine how upset everyone was when they were told it was just a prank.
3. One of the leading newspapers in England, by April 1, published an advertisement for a round the world trip, which cost only two hundred pounds. The message of a well-known commentator who was engaged in the propaganda of Italian spaghetti looked very truthful. He claimed that this product grows, right in the trees. The British are a little limited on this day. You can only joke until 12 noon. The most outstanding draw of the past century (1957) belongs to the BBC.
4. As for Austria and Germany, in these countries April 1 was considered a bad day. Residents were sure that people born on this day were unlucky. This is due to the fact that this date was the birthday of Judas.
