    nmap: portscan for fun and profit.
    ethereal: Sniff Traffic for fun and profit. Much better when your machine is on the same ethernet line as other computers, or wireless.

    Kismet: Find wireless access points in the darndest places.
    Airsnort: and don't let WEP stop you.

    Nessus: Vulnerability finder.


    Also, look around on your system, most distros usually install all sorts of applications.

    What kind of fun are you looking for? If you like old school games, I highly recommend cxhextris and crack-attack.

    As long as you're not running as root, it's not really that dangerous, since you won't delete anything really vital to the system. The only thing you should lose is your home directory.
