MAGIC #1

nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere on the Computer which can be named as "CON". This is something funny and inexplicable… At Microsoft the whole Team, couldn't answer why this happened!
TRY IT NOW, IT WILL NOT CREATE A "CON" FOLDER

MAGIC #2
For those of you using Windows, do the following:
1.) Open an empty notepad file
2.) Type "Bush hid the facts" (without the quotes)
3.) Save it as whatever you want.
4.) Close it, and re-open it.
Noticed the weird bug? No one can explain!

MAGIC #3
Again this is something funny and can't be explained… At Microsoft the whole Team,  couldn't answer why this happened!
 Try it out yourself…
Open Microsoft Word and type
=rand (200, 99)
And then press ENTER
And see the magic…..!

Nice try, but Microsoft has long ago clearly explained all three.    Shocked

1)  CON is the abbreviation for CONSOLE, a vestige from DOS days.  Because early windows ran under DOS,
     the file name was reserved and continues to be for compatibility reasons.
     There are other reserved words.  http://blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/archive/2003/10/22/55388.aspx

2)  A bug in the function IsTextUnicode of Microsoft Windows.
     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bush_hid_the_facts

3)  In Microsoft Word, =rand() creates one instance of 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog',
     If used, the first parameter is the desired number of paragraphs,  the second number refers to the
     number of sentences desired.

   But as oldvan has pointed out, there is no magic here!
