Bored geeks get awesome

When some people get bored, they get destructive. When geeks get bored, they get... well, I was going to say "weird", but that would imply that you can tell the difference. Creative? Geeky? Not sure. Anyway. A network engineer in a fit of boredom created what, I am sure, is the most awesome traceroute in the whole internet. Check it out... the address to target is: 216.81.59.173

Tip: You'll want more than thirty hops, which is the usual default. In my test, it took 62 hops to get there. But make sure you have name lookups active.
