Since the V, IV and VC forums have this thread, it'll be a shame if SA didn't.

Yeah it's an old game and almost everyone knows everything, but we could all use a freshen up.
I'll start:

Sometimes you can see PizzaBoy scooters driving around, but the restaurant isn't present.

The section on the bridge over GS from where Tenpenny falls can be broken after completing the story.

Sometimes police officers will jack a ped's car and drive off.

People know everything about SA by now, don't you think? Byt let's try.

Before too.

- Some unused text files hint that in the mission Photo Opportunity, CJ had to steal a Helicopter and take the photos from there. That's why he screams.

-GTA SA was meant to have more than one protagonist, but the idea was dropped because of console limitations.

- There are some alternative cutscenes for starting a missions
- You can reply to people's some comments

EVERYBODY, by now Knows that there is No bigfoot in the game as published. You can find him only if you install the Modification.

He's a troll. Look at his posts.
Btw, you can also spot bigfoot in SA if you normally wear 10 cm thick special glasses, and put them off while looking at a tree.

There is a pickup for a country rifle in San Fierro, but it is located inside the stadium (not the interior - literally inside the loaded model) and therefore is unobtainable.
Also, if you fly around the LVPD HQ in Roca Escalante with a jetpack you may end up with a 3-star wanted level.

The special variant of the firetruck (the one that Tenpenny escapes in End of the Line) sometimes spawns around the back of the San Fierro fire station (located across the street from the garage in Dohetry).

You do not need to spend any money on weapons or body armour during the entire game.

Let me guess: Get money by killing peds, and find weapons in the map, right?

And getting free ammunition using the Ammunation Challenge glitch.

- The GSF color was originally orange, as showed by some unused files, and one of CJ's answers to gang members.

In the background of the opening cutscene for "Robbing Uncle Sam" the version of "Today Was a Good Day" being used is the clean version, while on Radio Los Santos it's the uncensored version.

In the cutscene you can hear "I got a beep from Kim and she can do it all night" instead of "I got a beep from Kim and she can f*ck all night".

I never knew some girlfriends could catch you on dates with other girlfriends, and you'd have to outrun them. I was on a date with Denise, and out of nowhere Millie is in front of me in a pink Feltzer.

If you shoot the moon with a sniper rifle, the moon changes size multiple times each shot.
If you climb into an ambulance your health is replenished by 20-25%
If CJ is fat, you'll get a different cutscene for Black Project and also Green Goo. There's also another one for Amphibious Assault, if CJ hasn't increased his lung capacity, WuZi will tell CJ to practice swimming underwater.
You can workout at the start of the game Before the gyms are open. Head down to the beach gym in LS.
You can get an early pilots licence by hopping over the security hut at LS airport then fly a Shamal around LS airspace for about 20 mins. Don't leave LS though because you'll get a wanted level.
You can make CJ fat at the start of the game by drinking or eating about 200 drinks/snacks. Just find a vending machine for this.
There are about 7 different ways to complete Wrong Side of Tracks. 1. The traditional way with Big Smoke shooting 2. The Jetpack method 3. Physically jumping onto the train 4. The Seasparrow method 5. Jumping onto the train with the Sanchez. 6. Getting ahead of the train and sniping the train driver. 7. Can't remember, but look up OrionSR guide youtube.

At night, a strange red glow will light up the cabin in Palomino Creek, near the wheelchair. Still don't know why that happens...

I realized today that melee attacks sort of have a homing mechanism. If you simply start attacking with no one around, you move towards the direction you're facing. If someone is near you, CJ will turn and start attacking them. I never really noticed that.
