For the record. If font for your terminal supports it, you can add japanese or chinese chars to the charset. Or even you can search UTF for reversed chars, as in movie some of them are backwards.

Apply it in a fullscreen instance of "cool retro term" and you got it.

Good shit dude. Guess I'm late to the party, but it still looks amazing!
Little hard to shutdown though, but why would you? ;D

Awesome effect, but insanely suboptimal. The resource consumption of the script reminds me of a fork-bomb.
