Well, I know that in XP if you went into Notepad and typed "Bush hid the facts", saved it as with any name, and then re-opened it, the text would be changed to square characters. Not sure if it works in 7.

EDIT: Not in 7

There is a reference to the Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol accessible by the run command; a fictional protocol for controlling, monitoring, and diagnosing coffee pots designed as an April Fools joke. Listed amongst prerecorded locations is coffee:get which, according to its creator, "Retrieves coffee from the HTCPCP server." Running the coffee:get command results in an error, as windows does not understand the coffee: URI. This is the final reference to HTCPCP, as most others have been removed. HTTP Status Code 418, for example, no longer responds with "The HTCPCP server is a teapot; the responding entity may be short and stout."

One of the planes that hit one of the two WTC towers on 9/11 was Q33N.
Type that flight number 'Q33N' in notepad. Increase the font size to 72. Change the font to Wingdings. …..
