    If you do a traceroute to 216.81.59.173
    You get the rolling credits from starwars.

    The guys at Beagle Networks have setup an internal configuration that routes all requests to this IP through a bunch of other IP addresses. If you don't know how to do a traceroute here is what you get.

    [grommet@server ~]$ traceroute 216.81.59.173 -m90
    traceroute to 216.81.59.173 (216.81.59.173), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
