Boredom + C standard I/O library + inspiration from coreutils.

(Seriously, this thread is starting to turn into a clone of "What are you doing now?".)

EDIT: @lupusarcanus I ported your shell script to be *nix compatible:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

while test 1; do
	for ((x = 0; x < 4; x++)); do
		espeak -a 10 -v en-us "Badgers, badgers, badgers, badgers, badgers, badgers, A MUSHROOM!, A MUSHROOM!"
	done
	
	espeak -a 10 -v en-us "A SNAKE!, A SNAKE, A SNAKE!"
done
LOL

Same here, but I refuse to dye my hair. I don't agree with it ... besides, there's usually lead in it.

$RANDOM = Did you know that Schizophrenia (a degenerative disorder whose name means split from reality) is most often confused with split personality disorder (which is no longer considered a disorder, because it was found that all cases where psychologist/psychiatrist-induced).

You know what, I actually knew that, due to the fact that I frequent mental health here and there.............

I knew that because I took some psychology classes, and I probably will again ... or psychiatry.

An Indian named Chief Bowels lived in a teepee on the reservation. One day he received a letter from the state division of highways that said that they were going to build a freeway and it would go right through where his teepee was located and he would have to move.

He was very upset about this because his ancestors had lived in that exact place for many generations.

He decided to go into town to talk to someone and get them to change the route of the freeway.

He arrived in town but didn't know where to go so he asked someone for directions to the local office of the highway department. He was told to go three blocks straight ahead then turn left for two blocks and it would be on the right.

He went three blocks straight ahead then turned right and went into the building on the left. It was a drugstore.

The druggist asked him if he could help him and the Indian replied. "Bowels no move!"

"Oh," said the druggist. That's no problem. Take this twice a day for a week." he said, as he gave the Indian a bottle of medicine.

The Indian left and one week later the he returned. "Hello," said the druggist. "Did that medicine work?"

"Bowels still no move!" said the Indian.

"Well, well," said the druggist. "It appears that we will have to use something a little stronger. Take this four times a day for a week."

The Indian left and one week later he returned. "Hello again," said the druggist. "How are you doing?"

"Bowels still no move!" said the Indian.

"Oh my goodness!" said the druggist. "This really calls for something drastic. This is the most powerful treatment in existance. Take it eight times a day for a week."

The Indian left and one week later he returned. When the druggist saw him he asked, "bowels move?"

"Bowels have to move" said the Indian. "Teepee full of sh!t."
