1. If you salute with 3 fingers, Windows asks if you want to reboot

2. If you "salute" with 1 finger, Clippy asks if you meant "Thank You!"

3. If you face away from the computer, and bend forwards, Windows asks if you are ready for the "Window Genuine Validation Test".

4. Imitating Jerry Seinfeld - no effect on Windows.

5. Standing perfectly still and expressionless - Windows says, "Hello Melissa!"
