Randomness is the answer

Postby Caracticus » June 26th, 2005, 11:01 am

I've seen this on other forums and the overall effect is quite amusing.

Post anything random, a joke, a quote, a line of poetry, say "hi!", or even "I like crisps". I doesn't have to be related to anything nor even make sense, just post.

:wink:

ahah, purple bumblebees and the great door conspiracy of 1924.

And then, the great void opened, and out came a monkey banging two cymbals together and singing a russion song.

Actually, there was a "randomness is the answer" thread around well before you signed up.

There was wasn't there, I never actually had a look at it. The reason why I started the nuns topic, was because I saw a couple of nuns walking accross the road in the oppositte direction to me.

Joints link cohesive branches of rolling machinery in Vietnam. Or maybe they don't.

Open a new Word document and type:

= rand (200,99)

then press on "enter"

Wait for three seconds and look again...

It is a testing thing that the Microsoft programmers put in and forgot about. Easy way to generate a big new document to test.
