A Bizarre Tradition: April Fool’s Day Pranks

April Fool’s Day pranks | H&H Chevrolet Cadillac | Shippensburg, PA

 

History On The Big Prank Day

There are many memorable April Fool’s Day pranks, and we here at H&H Chevrolet truly love this spring tradition. April Fool’s Day actually dates back the 1500s when the modern calendar was first introduced. Because many were still on the old system (which began in April), those who were up to speed played pranks on the fools who still celebrated the start of the year in the spring. Since then, this tradition has grown to become an international phenomenon.

Funny Pranks Galore

According to Deal News, one of the best pranks involves a paper cup and marker. Simply flip the cup upside down and write “spider underneath!” on the top (any similar phrase will work). Now you can leave it on someone’s desk, in a conference room, or around the house.

Another trick is to fill a sleeping person’s hand with shaving cream and to tickle their nose with a feather. As they react to the feather, their hand will smack their face—a hand full of shaving cream. This is a good prank for close friends, but be sure to choose your victims wisely! Not everyone enjoys being the butt of a joke.

Another great one involves simple gelatin. If you have a friend or family member who leaves drinks around the house, simply take their drink, add gelatin, and put it in the refrigerator before bed. This works best with cool aid. When they try to drink it the next day, they’ll be surprised to find a jell-like substance instead.

There so many other hilarious pranks and hoaxes, so be sure to leave a comment with your favorites below. Just be sure they are fun and safe!

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle you should come on down to H&H Chevrolet Cadillac and check out all our great deals! Now that is not a Prank, it’s legit!

Keeping New Year’s Resolutions Is Easier with These Tips

keeping new year’s resolutions

Only about 8% of Americans who set New Year’s resolutions actually keep them. That’s why we’ve put together a list of statistically proven methods for increasing the likelihood that you keep your resolution. Whether you’re giving up smoking, junk food, bad driving habits, or something else, you’re bound to do better if you follow these simple tips.

According to WebMD, psychiatrists suggest exercising when you get the urge to cheat on your resolution. Keeping New Year’s resolutions is easier when you distract yourself from cravings—for cigarettes, junk food, or drinks, for instance—when you work out. In fact, this can increase the likelihood that you succeed by up to 27%.

Next, break up your resolution. If you’re trying to “get in shape” over the course of the year, it’s more realistic to set definitive goals. For example, try to quit eating junk food. Then, when that is mastered, try to drop five pounds. You get the idea. By breaking it up, it’s easier to succeed.

Finally, try to build a network of support. Start a resolution club with friends, or try to make your goals public. If you have other people watching and supporting you, you’re more likely to reach your goals and to keep resolutions. Plus, if you do fail, it’s always good to have friends and family around to help you persist.

General Motors has generated a lot of interest with its latest electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Bolt. Now the company is taking that interest to new heights by making use of their partnership with Lyft. General Motors and Lyft will begin testing the autonomous Chevrolet Bolt taxi by mid-2017.

While neither company has revealed the location, the Chevrolet Bolt taxi isn’t likely to go unnoticed. Using technology developed by Cruise Automation Inc., General Motors hopes to increase sales via those who use Lyft.

“We have said the Chevrolet Bolt EV is the ideal platform for ride sharing solutions,” General Motors said. “We believe electrification blends perfectly with autonomy when it comes to technology integration.”

General Motors invested $500 million in Lyft back in January and both companies have heavily invested in autonomous technology. That’s not the only company the conglomerate is looking to acquire. Cruise Automation Inc. is in talks with General Motors for a $1 billion price tag.

Have no fear, ride-sharing users! Lyft will keep drivers in autonomous vehicles at first to ensure passenger safety. Customers in the unnamed city can opt into the program to receive a ride in an autonomous Chevrolet Bolt taxi within the coming year.

Here at H&H Chevrolet Cadillac of Shippensburg, PA, we can’t wait to see the latest in autonomous technology hit the road!
