Easter Eggs (no, sorry, not the choclate kind)

I thought it might be nice to have a thread were we share secrets and cool stuff we have found in games, programs and websites.
Theres sites dedicated to this stuff, but i just wondered about the stuff you found

eg, I just discovered google has some really cool interface langerages supported:

http://www.google.com/preferences?hl=en

Klingon is fun, but Elmer Fudd is the best one IMO

Also when you type in "answer to life the universe and everything" and google tells you its 42....a dirrect referance to Hitch Hikers Guide.
----




So what stupid/weird stuff have you found?

I discovered an easter egg in Mozilla's skypilot theme, but you probably don't care

Excel 97 has a flight simulator, and Word 97 has a car racing game... I might be mixed up with versions though, not sure, but I did play them.
Well, I'm just telling two random ones. Lots of software which took a lot of time have easter eggs in them, like the Windows 95 one where you have to click timezones etc.

There are tons of sites with software easter eggs listings, I think that's far more efficient than random people telling the ones they happened to encounter (that's why I didn't bother really explaining any). http://www.eeggs.com/ has been a well known site for years, for example.
