(Abandon all sanity, ye who enter here.)
There are quite a few obfuscated programming languages around, but INTERCAL is still the Original And Best.
I've implemented the Game Of Life in INTERCAL. The original cell configuration is set up at lines 7-11, and the number of generations is determined by the number of "don't reinstate" lines in the chunk of code with labels (31) through (36). The output for each generation will be 8 integers. When you look at the binary representations of these numbers, one above another, the binary 1s will represent living cells in the old-style graphical life board fashion.
