Original:

  unsigned explosive_power = 0;
  while (still_not_eliminated("FSF"))
    send_a_bomb("FSF", explosive_power += 10/*kiloton*/); 

Derivative:

  unsigned explosive_power = 0;
  while (still_not_eliminated("FSF")) {
    fork(); 
    send_a_bomb("FSF", max((explosive_power += 10) + random(), 666)/*kiloton*/);
  }

alexander.
