Microsoft has been hiding easter eggs in their programs for years. This shows the last known easter egg to come out in an office suite in Excel 2000. If you have Excel 97, first: please upgrade to a newer version. Second: before you upgrade, open a new workbook in Excel 97. Open a new workbook Press F5Enter X97:L97 and press Enter Press Tab Press Ctrl Shift and click the Chart Wizard button on the toolbar. You’ll be greeted with a full-screen animated image. Use the mouse to move around.

Fly around a bit and you’ll see a grey stone pyramid. Fly to the side of the pyramid that’s black and you’ll see the credits scroll by for the developers.

Even when you can’t make it stronger, you can still make it longer. Nine ways to stretch that term paper you should have written weeks ago.
Eleventh-hour paper-writing can be a cruel ordeal, especially when it’s 4 a.m. and the five-page brain fart you coughed up just won’t do. But don’t despair! Your late-night labors may have come up short, but these crafty tips will prove that in a pinch, size doesn’t matter — it all depends on what you do with it.
1. Inching In The Margins
Everyone’s tried it, but don’t scoff: With some finesse, you can make this cliched con work. The key is subtlety. Try knocking in the left and right margins a quarter-inch or so-it’s virtually unnoticeable, and if you’re starting with a half-decent number of pages already, the accumulated buildup can puff your length by a whole page.
2. Bumping Up Font Size
Another delicate maneuver that, if played too strong, could blow your cover. Regulation size is 11 or 12, but see where a 13 will get you. Some word processors even let you input decimal font sizes, giving you free reign over everything between 12.01 and 13.99. That may seem like splitting hairs, but over four or five pages those hairs add up. And unless your prof reads assignments with an electron microscope, odds are he or she won’t even notice the difference.
3. Changing the Font
Obviously, an essay typed in Olde English script isn’t going to be much of a bluff, but a secret weapon does exist: Courier, a font which mimics the style of traditional manual typewriters. Those old-school clunkers allot an equal amount of page space to every letter of the alphabet, meaning that thin i’s take up as much horizontal room as fat Q’s. Just one click on this heaven-sent typeface can turn you into a desktop David Copperfield, allowing you to magically materialize multiple pages out of thin air.
