One line white noise generator

I found the following command while searching for programming music. Is a neat solution if you only want to generate white noise to block the outside distractions:

cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp

The way it works is outputting random numbers(urandom is the kernel random number generator) to our sound card.

Run it and enjoy!
