Picture of the day

Just spotted this during my evening check, thought it might be fun to post.
Load average=23
Proof that the load average isn’t necessarily limited to the amount of cores… nor even to 3 times that: the computer is a 6 core Opteron 4174 HE (Lisbon).

Text version? (sorry, didn’t manage to catch one that high):
