      On lobste.rs I found link to an article from Vidar Holen, the author of shellcheck. He made a fork bomb that is really interesting. Here's the bomb:

      DO NOT RUN THIS.

      eval $(echo "I<RA('1E<W3t`rYWdl&r()(Y29j&r{,3Rl7Ig}&r{,T31wo});r`26<F]F;==" | uudecode)
      

      This may look pretty obvious, but it's harder than you think. I fell for it. twice. Can you find out how this bomb works?

      Warning: executing the bomb will slow down your computer and will force you to restart.
      You can limit impact of the fork bomb by setting FUNCNEST.

      export FUNCNEST=3
      

      Have fun!

      I use this constantly, it just plays music by file name, specifically matching *NAME* with case-insensitivity. Requires bash 4.something.

      # play -ln SONGS ...
      # -l don't shuffle
      # -n dry run
      mpv_args="--no-audio-display --no-resume-playback \
                --msg-level=all=status --term-osd-bar"
      shopt -s globstar nullglob nocaseglob
      
      shuffle=true
      dry=false
      while [[ "$1" == -* ]]; do
          if [[ "$1" == "-l" ]]; then 
              shuffle=false
          elif [[ "$1" == "-n" ]]; then
              dry=true
          fi
      
          shift 1
      done
      
      if [[ "$shuffle" == true ]]; then
          mpv_args="--shuffle $mpv_args"
      fi
      
      songs=()
      while [[ "$#" != 0 ]]; do
          songs+=( ~/music/**/**/*"$1"*.* ) # change this to match your music directory layout
          shift 1                                               # could probably use find instead
      done
      
      if [[ "$dry" == true ]]; then
          if [[ "$shuffle" == true ]]; then
              printf "Shuffle mode is on\n"
          fi
      
          for song in "${songs[@]}"; do
              printf "$song\n"
          done
        
          exit
      fi
      
      if [[ ${#songs[@]} != 0 ]]; then
          mpv $mpv_args "${songs[@]}"
      fi
      

      I make no claims to the quality of this but it works!
