Integer Sequences database located here:
fetch http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences/stripped.gz

Put some real previous work back to work!. ;)

sed & awk that file to your liking to change commas spaces or such around so

# For bourne style shells.
for line in `zcat stripped.gz`; do echo $line && sleep .09 ;done

Best of luck.

For extra added effect make things a little bit larger.
