      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!
