Is randomness itself actually random?

Hell of splendid! I've always loved the "random" feature on any given site. This kind of thing can be incredibly useful at times. I'll be combing through these links for weeks/years. Thanks.

I think the random essay site is being used to generate the text of the three thousand stock pumping spams I get a day.

Could be best of the web, could not be best of the web. You really just can't tell.

It's about 5 dollars-worth of random, which is about 5 dollars-worth of good. Fun post.

howto bullshit inspiration [NOT RANDOM?]

The pomo generator is, I think, they greatest thing I have ever seen on the nets. Come to think of it - it was elsewhere.org that first led me to Metafilter.

For livejournal, I prefer the latest to random.

Disappointing; I was hoping one site had all of these things.
