PostSubject: 12 Internet Easter Eggs   Fri Nov 04, 2011 9:56 pm

Aight Radiant Raiders xD , Imma be showing you some easter eggs in the web Cool

Youtube Snake Game
Seen here snaking in front of PCMag's very own Lance Ulanoff is perhaps YouTube's coolest Easter egg. Every YouTube video published after April 2010 contains a hidden snake game that plays out atop the video at hand. Here's how to activate it.
When playing a video (it also works when paused), hit the up and left arrow keys on your keyboard simultaneously. If you do it just right, a dotted, moving "snake" will appear, along with a lone dot off to the side. You control the snake's motion with your keyboard's arrow keys. Every time you "eat" (run into) a dot, your snake will grow longer. The object of the game is to eat as many dots as possible without running into your ever-lengthening snake body. (You can also practice avoiding a certain Editor-In-Chief's moving head, if you're so inclined.)

[b[Google "42" Trick[/b]
On Google.com, search for "answer to life, the universe, and everything." The first result will be a special Google Calculator answer, 42, which references Douglas Adams' classic Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.
Also try searching for "number of horns on a unicorn" and "once in a blue moon" for more entertaining Calculator results. Google is rife with Easter eggs and hidden pages; you'll see a few more of ahead.

Book a Seat on Oceanic Flight 815
This Easter egg gives me creepy vibes for some reason, although it is brilliant. On travel booking site Kayak.com, search for a one-way flight between Sydney (SYD) and Los Angeles (LAX) for September 22nd, 2010. One of the choices will be Oceanic Airlines Flight 815, the famous fictional flight from the popular TV show Lost. Just don't get on the plane, lest you find yourself being chased by an incongruous polar bear.

Google ASCII Art
ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is the industry-standard method that computers use to encode letters and characters. So it follows that ASCII art seeks to create graphical art using only combinations of ASCII text characters. It's an ancient and respected art form in the realm of wizardly computer nerds.
To celebrate text-based art, Google buried an amusing Easter egg in their site. If you search for "ASCII art," the Google logo on the left side of the screen will be replaced with a graphical ASCII representation. This new Google logo really is ASCII too—highlight it to see that it's made of text

Facebook Pirate Language
Facebook is well known for hiding fun tidbits throughout its site. In keeping with that playful spirit, Facebook supports two alternate English language sets that are sure to confuse your friends.
To use these alternate languages, scroll down to the bottom of your Facebook page where it reads "English (US)" (or whichever language you're using). Click on that language link and a menu will pop up with a list of international languages. Click the arrow next to English (US) and select "English (Pirate)" or "(Upside Down)."
The Pirate option changes all of Facebook's labels to Pirate-themed text (as seen above). The Upside Down option mirrors all the text from left to right. Note that this setting only works for your account when you log in; others will not see your account page in "Pirate" unless they set that as their default language as well.

GameSpot Konami Code
Back in the heyday of the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), every kid worth his salt knew the secret "Konami code" that gave you 30 extra lives in Contra, a popular NES game made by Konami. Various sites today pay homage to the memorable cheat code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start) with hidden Easter eggs.
GameSpot is one such site, and if you perform the Konami code on its main page using the arrow keys on your keyboard while substituting the enter key for "Start," you will be taken to the Contra Hints & Cheats section. Very appropriate.
Keep the Konami code in mind, because you'll be using it for a few more sites ahead.

Amazon Bids David Risher Adieu
Amazon.com, not to be left out in the great Easter egg hunt, contains a secret page in tribute to David Risher, Amazon.com's former Senior Vice President. While influential and prominent in Amazon's development, Risher left the company in 2002 for greener pastures.
To find the hidden tribute, navigate to Amazon's site directory and scroll down to the very bottom of the page. There, just below the "1996-2010" copyright notice is an invisible link (which is highlit in blue in the inset image above). You can find it by hovering over it with your mouse cursor. Click on it, and you'll be taken to Risher's farewell page, which contains a personal note from Jeff Bezos himself.
Check out this link to see it: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=447307

Secret Google Languages
Similar to the Facebook pirate language trick, Google supports a number of humorous alternative languages like "hacker" (seen here), "Elmer Fudd," "Pirate," "Klingon," and more. To access them, visit these URLs:
www.google.com/intl/xx-hacker
www.google.com/intl/xx-elmer
www.google.com/intl/xx-piglatin
www.google.com/intl/xx-pirate
www.google.com/intl/xx-bork
www.google.com/intl/xx-klingon

Mini Cooper in Reverse
On the Mini USA Web site (maker of the Mini Cooper car line), type "reverse" into the search bar in the upper right corner. A gear shift will appear in the lower left, and if you click on it while holding the shift key, the entire site will be "thrown in reverse," as seen above. To return to normal, hit the gear shift again.

Google Reader Ninjas
Google Reader, a Web-based RSS feed reader, also supports the Konami code. Once you're logged in, type this sequence (using your arrow keys for the directions:( up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, enter key. The sidebar will turn blue and gain a ninja theme, complete with a cute cartoon Ninja ready to strike at any moment

AIM Express Blox
AOL's official Web-based AOL Instant Messenger client, AIM Express (go to aim.com and click "launch AIM"), includes one of the Web's best Easter eggs. After using the Konami code, a Tetris clone called "Blox" will pop up over the page. You can play it with your arrow keys; all the normal Tetris rules apply.
To access Blox, type this sequence once you've logged in to AIM: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, enter key. Remember to use your keyboard's arrow keys for the up/down/left/right directions.

Easter Egg Classics
A handful of sites have played host to epic Easter eggs that, sadly, no longer function.
In 2009, an ESPN Web developer hid a glittery unicorn attack into ESPN.com. If one performed the aforementioned Konami code on the site, glittery sparkly unicorn images would appear all over the page. ESPN apparently wasn't pleased, because they removed the trick shortly after news of it spread around the Web.
Similarly, on June 14th, 2010, one could perform the Konami code on Newsweek.com and experience a fictional zombie invasion. The code would replace all the regular news articles on the front page with articles about zombies, including tips on how to defeat them or ward them off. Newsweek took down the Easter egg the same day, citing a Web developer who decided to have some fun with the site.
As the Web is in a state of continual flux, old Easter eggs, including many listed here, are bound to expire eventually and pass into the history books. But take heart that playful Web developers worldwide will continue find new ways to sneak amusing diversions into the most unsuspecting plac

Google Barrel Roll
Go to Google and search "do a barrel roll" (without the quotes). Google will do a barrel roll for you!

Christmas Google
Go to Google and search for "christmas". Above the "xxx results found", you'll see some Christmas decoration.

Snow on Google
Google for "let it snow" (won't work in Internet Explorer). Snowflakes will start falling and Google will freeze - you can draw or de-freeze it.

Also, Fiction, 3 of these won't work: ASCII art, Amazon's "hidden page" and Mini Cooper's "reverse".
It can be seen this is copied from somewhere for two reasons:

As far as I know, we use English.

Quote :
just below the "1996-2010" copyright notice
Since this was posted in 2011, I'd expect you to at least give the right date.
