An inventive Cisco-certified networking professional, who must also be a big fan of a certain sci-fi movie, set up some private routing tables that tell a pretty amusing story when you try to tracert his site's ip address.
 
For a funny result, open up a command prompt and run this trace:
tracert -h 64 216.81.59.173I got a good laugh out of this, and you probably will too.  :catlol:
 
*please don't post screenshots of your results since we always moderate off ip addresses
**we're making an exception for this particular address since the owner made it public intentionally

Looks like he had to take it down due to bandwidth concerns.  Oh well, it was funny while it lasted.

There's always still:
telnet towel.blinkenlights.nlIf you've got Telnet enabled of course.
