Eastereggs are my favorite part of whatever I'm viewing or doing. Maybe there are some you dislike too. I was watching a video about Google eastereggs, and so far the favorite ones for me are "Do a barrel roll" and "Google Terminal" (Terminal is followed by clicking "I'm feeling Lucky") My least favorite has to be "Tilt" because My OCD goes crazy. I also like other ones such as the flight simulator in Microsoft Office 97 Excel.

What are your favorite or disliked eastereggs?

I remember an episode of Dr. Who about Easter Eggs but apart from that I didn't even know they existed.

This may be my favorite:

Go to Google Maps and ask for directions from Japan to China. Read through the list of directions it gives you. The easteregg should be obvious.

I don't know if this is considered an easter egg or not, but I remember in Crazy Taxi driving into the water to see if I could. I was shocked when I was driving underwater and managed to pick up a customer. That's probably my favorite since I found it on my own.

If you type into Google Maps - The Shire --> Mordor, and select the walking option, then:
Walking directions are in beta.
Use caution – One does not simply walk into Mordor.

I didn't find this myself, but I don't know who did, because I was told by one of my friends :)
