forkbomb
jaromil

A forkbomb (see related project descriptions) implemented as a single-line/13 characters Unix shell script. In other words: You just have to type these 13 characters (which superficially resemble smilies or ASCII art) on the command line/the terminal window of any computer running a Unix-like operating system:

:(){ :|:& };:

The most elegant forkbomb code ever written.
