    May the wait be well waited,
    May the time be well slated,
    BlitzGirl be elevated,
    To the latest of pages.
    Let us all be elated,
    Our hunger abated,
    As be we caffeinated,
    We watch Time. Pixelated.

On NewPage 1281 of the One True Thread , edfel did spake this 51,238th utterance:

I don't think this looks completely random. A is only followed by E, B is only followed by A, E is only followed by C or D. does it look like evenly distributed to all of you.
PS: I know it's impossible to draw a final conclusion about randomness. but guessing is allowed

and did quote:

  • mscha on NP 1279 as stating

    Update on the OTC:<snip> we now have the following: CDCBAECDAEDCBAEDCC <snip>

and was subsequently quoted by:

  • mscha on NP 1282, who did follow up with

    Problem is, it is impossible to determine €œrandomness € based on such a small sample. Humans very good at spotting patterns, which we can almost certainly find where there are none. (Besides, the chance of getting CDCBAECDAEDCBAEDCC is just as big as getting AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA or ABCDEABCDEABCDEABC.). Here's a random 18-character A-E string based on data from random.org (so supposedly truly random):. DADEDACBABACBACCCE. Does that look random to you? To me, definitely not. Anyway, as Prof. Grumbles already noted, the past two hours, the oldpix did. change again; so Time is not standing still (yet). The sequence is now: CDCBAECDAEDCBAEDCCDC.
