User[17]

In Rails 2.3.8 if you put this in RAILS_ROOT/initializers/

# active_record_extensions.rb
module ActiveRecord
  class Base
    class << self
      def [](index)
        find(index)
      end
    end
  end
end

Then you can access like an array:

User[17]

instead of the more verbose:

User.find(17)

Personally, I think it's kinda nice.
