What I like to with the terminal is mess with my brother when he bothers me using ssh. You can make the computer on the other end talk, you can open shock sites like ****** and ******* a couple thousand times, make really horrible songs like "milkshake" or "lean back" play loudly while they are trying to work.

This site explains how to do it pretty well

Edit: Funny, I didn't think thoes shock site names would be blocked.

Open the terminal and type "killall Dock" but do not press return.
Find a "victim Window" (Safari looks great)
Keep the terminal window frontmost, but hold shift and click the minimize button in the victim window. The victim window will slowly minimize.
While the window is still minimizing, press return to execute your command in the terminal.
The minimizing window will be frozen in time and space. However, the window still works, even though it is distorted.
