Mac OS X Easter Egg - Snake Game in Terminal

Open Terminal within Applications >> Utilities.

Type in emacs, then press enter.

Within emacs hold down ESC and press X.

If the cursor is on the bottom of the terminal, type snake.


I found this out by typing in other game names after I heard about the Tetris egg.

Guys, those emacs things are NOT easter eggs! They are programming examples of the emacs embedded LISP language.
