Try these fun commands in your shell

For those philosophically minded:

> whatis love

 

Looking for friends?

> echo ‘[q]sa[ln0=aln256%Pln256/snlbx]sb3135071790101768542287578439snlbxq’|dc

 

Any Star Wars fans?

> telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl

 

Needing some affirmation?

> yes ‘You are awesome!’

You’ll need a Ctrl-C when you’ve had enough affirmation.

 

And finally, a message from us:

> echo ‘ICAgICAgICAgICAgICAgX18gCiAgICAgICAgICAgICAgL29fKSA8IGhhdmUgYSBncmVhdCBkYXkhI D4KICAgICAgIC4tXl5eLS8gLyAgCiAgICBfXy8gICAgICAgLyAgIAogICA8X18ufF98LXxffCAgICAK’ | base64 -d
