    XP Bush Easter Egg

    I found this the other day and I thought it was amazing:

    Load up notepad.
    Type "bush hid the facts"
    save the document, any name works.
    Close it.
    Open it again.
    what you open isn't what you typed.

    Type "bush hid the facts"
    You have to remove the quotes and then save it.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Funny works good. I used dean ate the co**s, and asked if he is trying to hide something?

    Hmmmmm,

    Well it isn't an "XP Easter Egg"................ it does the same in Windows 2000.

    If you open the saved document in OpenOffice you get what you originally typed. Same deal with Wordpad, so it looks like a "notepad" thing?
