Okay, this is a little two line program that outputs a never-ending double helix:
{@a=(' ')x18;$a[int(sin($_/2)*9)+9]=$a[int(cos($_/2)* 9)+9]='*';print@a;print"\n";for(1..10**5){}$_++;redo}

    Nice. I munged it a bit and tossed out your @a in favor of some more obfued ones....
    {$#==18,local@[[sin($-/2)*9+9,cos($-/2)*9+9]=('*')x2,s] ]@{[}$/]x,print;$-++;$_=$;;1for(1..10**5);redo}

    -Blake

      added @a again 'in favor of' printing some text.. I haven't obfued it any further that u did though.

      {@a=split'','just another perl hacker'unless@a; $#==18,local@[[sin($-/2)*9+9,cos($-/2)*9+9]=(shift @a)x2,s]]@{[}$/]x,print;$-++;$_=$;;1for(1..10**5);redo}

      He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

        I like it! Of course, that leaves the door wide open for something like this:
        {($_='Yw^xUabcdtefgdijktljkotiersjkUzxTyvlkbfdtcierstajogvPruntRshackR +Jelov') =~ y&RTUv;wxYz$& ~'/;$=()x;$&;eval;$_=$@;@a=split'',$^unless@a;$#== 18,local@[[sin($-/2)*9+9,cos($-/2)*9+9]=(shift@a)x2,s]]@{[}$/]x,print ;$-++;$_=$;;1for(1..10**5);redo}
