comment What are the pitfalls while generating a random number from a random data set?
No, I have no problems with the behaviour. I was not trying to put forward a new strategy or anything. I just wanted to know the quirks of random number generation. I already know about that Dilbert comics you gave so I have a pretty good idea about the lack of pitfalls of using human in general. My question was in relation to the method I used. I was thinking that since kernel also generates random number from my activity and I am doing too, what if I somehow "store" that randomness so that I don't have to wait while the kernel collects more entropy when I need it.
