    Log into your shell on your linux machine(it doesn't work with sh, needs bash)(don't know if it works on Mac) and paste the following(it works on cygwin 64b for me, too):

    NOTE: It increases load average and if you're on a tight vps provider, they might suspend you for long usage! But f* it, it's worth it!

    Code:
    echo -ne "\e[32m" ; while true ; do echo -ne "\e[$(($RANDOM % 2 + 1))m" ; tr -c "[:print:]" " " < /dev/urandom | dd count=1 bs=50 2> /dev/null ; done
    
    Do you see the spoon for what it is?

    There is no spoon!
