    I like to mess with a coworker that spends all day of gaiaonline.com (or something like that). Redirects him to google.com Any suggestions on where else I should redirect him?

    It checks this file before any network request. It translates one thing into another, so if you add:

    www.google.com 127.0.0.1

    to your hosts file, it will redirect the request to your loopback address (and it won't load, obviously). This is possible on any operating system.
