In addition to the 10 randomly-selected messages above, we picked the following messages as honorable mentions:

464131The only good chains are blockchains!
464135If at first you don't succeed, mine, mine again
464162All your coin are belong to us

All 15 messages are now permanently engraved in the Litecoin block chain, and stored on every computer running the official Litecoin client!

The messages have been prefixed with the string /LP^2/, so on Linux you can display them with the following one-liner:

grep -ao /LP^2/.\*/ ~/.litecoin/blocks/blk00011.dat

Alternatively, you can use an online block explorer to display a hex-encoded version of each message. Click on the first transaction of the block, then on the “Raw transaction” link: the message is located in the “raw_scriptSig” field. You can use a tool to convert the hexadecimal string to ASCII text.
