As we all know, Apple and Microsoft are rivals as Apple have MacOS and Microsoft has Windows.
If your Mac finds a Windows PC on the same network, it will show a computer with the famous Windows Blue Screen of Death screen.
You can find this picture in the Network tab of Finder (if you have a Windows computer turned on).
This is actually one of the easter eggs that is also in our Windows easter eggs article.

telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl and hit enter your Mac will display the original Star Wars movie in it's entirity as ASCII art.
This is a fun trick! Type in
open /usr/share/emacs/22.1/etc/COOKIES into your Mac's terminal. It'll open up TextEdit with a recipe for cookies.
If you need some therapy but don't have much money, you miht find this one helpful.
