That's too cool, surfwax95! I knew about the slow-mo, but the "killall Dock" trick is funny...

Awesome.
I'm posting using it.... I have to get some... er... em... "mood enhancers" and try this.

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

Here's some hidden strings I've found in a FinalCut .rsrc I was digging around in:

If we can't ship this puppy by then, we might as well be herding yaks.
I'm glad it's getting weird again. I didn't understand it when it wasn't weird.
The C switch statement: Mmmmmm! Chock full of nooses!
That would be like crossing the streams or something.
Mmmm... Chicago style pizza!
I've got my blankie, I'm good to go.
A lot of this job is mental.
"Mostly clockwise, sometimes reverses..."
What's the sound of one luma clamping?
I just wanna be in the app!
Oh, rough and woeful music which we have! Cause it to sound!
The Yak is a delightful creature... rather like a visit with a bovine Confucious
Nobody might know anything.
I don't know, somehow it just works.
How do you tempt a Yak?
Chocolate covered espresso beans!
We're not the engineers you're looking for. Move along, move along.
The little cartoon man is messing with my head!
Speed kills, but sync maims.
It's compatible with it's legacy.
Twix bars: A brand-new bad habit!
Many Yaks were exploited during the creation of this product.
I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of nuclear weapons in this product.
I'm concerned because the cow sounded pretty threatening.
I am NOT a mad cow!
I don't care who's on the other end of the phone... Hang it up!
I have deniable plausibility.
Note to the galley: Romulan Cosmos no longer to be served on school nights!

Seems to be a series of inside jokes at Apple...

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
