hoisted by my own petard

I was just reading the Google blog and started excitedly shouting to my friends at other computers. Richard Branson, founder of Virgin and the ultimate rock star CEO, had a post about Virgin and Google teaming up to establish a Mars colony. Think about it I yelled, Richard Branson, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, great problem solvers on something I've always wanted to do. They had applications for "Virgle" explorers on the website.

I think I've been had. Deeply fooled and more deeply disappointed. You might call it just desserts for my little prank but I'm sure no one got as worked up about me as I did about the possibility of exploring Mars. I'm going to go cry softly in a corner and wish for magic powers.
