    that will make the CPU work but OP won't see it "flying" :) And that's what he wants I guess.

    FYI, that would freeze your mac almost instantly.

    EDIT: umm, yeah don't try this at home. Just fresh from a hard restart. I know, I'm studying OS Internals in my final year at uni and I knew this would happen. Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment, and I wish I left top/activity monitor open before I ran it.

    What's the one that would (doesn't work anymore) recurse on itself forever? You would express it in a single line and about 20 characters?

    Side: why does this seg fault?
    Code:
    void die();
    
    int main() {
    	die();
    }
    
    void die() {die();die();}
