In similar category of doing fun things with internet tools, you can play tetris on IPv6 traceroute:

    traceroute -I -q 1 trh.milek7.pl
Game is controlled by appending chars into subdomain: w – rotate, s – drop, a – move left, d – move right. Example: tracerouting wwddds.trh.milek7.pl rotates 2x, moves right 3x and drops piece. After dropping to request new piece it is required to traceroute trh.milek7.pl without commands.



This is awesome. Very well done.

not as cool, but on a similar note:

  traceroute -m 50 bad.horse


I see a poem, but I'm not sure I get it. What am I missing/not-appreciating here?



Doesn't work for me:

  # traceroute -I -q 1 trh.milek7.pl
  
  connect: Network is unreachable


Are you sure that you have IPv6?. I don't have 60k addresses to do it on IPv4 :)


I was sure the machine I was testing this on had IPv6. I was wrong. Ooopsie. How can I downvote myself?


Doesn't seem to work anymore, but there was this:
