Don't believe what you read in the papers - especially today
Today is April Fools' Day - a day when most newspapers try to fool their readers by publishing an absurd story.
Check out its origins and some of the stories by clicking on the April Fools' label ( in left hand column or at the end of this post).
Here is a video and article about high-tech googles from the Guardian.
First glass cabin: Virgin launch new jet with SEE-THROUGH floor
Pioneering bosses at Virgin are introducing a jet with a glass floor to give passengers an uninterrupted view of the Earth from 30,000ft.
It will offer an amazing “walking on air” experience, with the world at your feet.
The plane has been commissioned as a one-off to join the airline’s new domestic Little Red fleet – flying once a day between Heathrow and Aberdeen.
And it has been granted special permission to fly over Loch Ness for a unique view of the Scottish scenery.
And here are some stories that sound like April Fools' but apparently aren't:
