My mac says" Trying 94.142.241.111..." Is that normal?

"Connection closed by foreign host" is all my mac says when I type in this command. Anyone here who could help me?

Works in Ubuntu linux as well because MAC is just a glorified version of Linux

Actually, Mac uses the Darwin kernel, base on BSD

This is cool!

Any way to kill it other than shutting down the Terminal?

You can do it on Windows too, the process is quite similar, just open cmd and type pkgmgr /iu"TelnetClient" (hit enter) and then restart cmd. Next type Telnet (hit enter) O (hit enter) and finally type towel.blinkenlights.nl and press enter, and you're done!

True true.
Ah, those days of green screens, saving to audio cassettes and loading times measured in hours!
