-- The purpose of pranks (NYT article)

From the New York Times article, "April Fool! The Purpose of Pranks"

"In a paper published last year, three psychologists argued that the sensation of being duped — anger, self-blame, bitterness — was such a singular cocktail that it forced an uncomfortable kind of self-awareness. How much of a dupe am I? Where are my blind spots?"

Interesting. So pranks make us grow.
