    Another cool one is the barrel roll one. I can't remember if it's "barrel roll" or "do a barrel roll" but the page will do a 360 flip

    Edit: it is "do a barrel roll"

    I've seen this mentioned before and it just takes me to the Chuck Norris homepage. What am I missing?

    Another fun one is using google maps to get driving directions from Japan to China, or China to the US, or Japan to the US.

    Not really Easter Eggs, but autocomplete me has a bunch of funny google autocompletes.

    It is supposed to be 'find Chuck Norris'.

    It redirects to Chuck Norris - Google Search

    It doesn't do it anymore, but I remember you used to be able to ask for driving directions from New York to London and it would have you swim across the Atlantc.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
