Facebook Easter Eggs
easter_eggs_ybnby.jpg
There's no denying that we at the YesButNoButYes home office do our fair share of Twittering and Facebooking. Add into that mix the brand-new kegerator we had installed and you can fully understand why the quality of our articles has been in steady decline lately. And with this wasted time, we've stumbled onto a few interesting Easter Eggs on Facebook. Most are pointless, but like a jack-knife wielding bunny rabbit, these will keep you entertained for a few minutes.
  • The Konami/Contra Code - Go to your home screen and type in the code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, "b", "a", "return") and watch magical lens flare show up on your screen. This won't give you 30 extra guys, so you're on your own to defeat Red Falcon.
  • Talk Like a Pirate - Scroll all the way down to the bottom of your home screen and select "English (US)" or whatever language you're currently using. This will bring up a box with various other languages to select, including English (Pirate), which is not only funny, but amazing in the depth they went to employ this feature.
  • The Hidden Quote - Go to a "Friends" list (not your own) and "view all" then scroll down to the bottom of the page. Highlight all the text and you should see a small quote below the last friend.
Let us know if we've missed any.

UPDATE: Here's a list of all the sites that accept the "Konami Code"

For the record, the Contra Code requires you to hit the arrow keys and not type in "up" or "left".

How, pray tell, does one stumble upon these?? Do you just sit at your computer and try random keystrokes??

Ok, how do you get the lens flare thing to go away?

There's also an English (upside down) option.
