When I was younger in middle/high school, I would scan through the bible when I got bored to try and find a random verse to entertain me. (Religious texts themselves are serious, but back then I treated all written words as literature, to be read and misread in any way I wanted.)
Then in high school, I got a text. This is what it said:
A three-ring circus
56 hot dogs w/ no mustard
That was my formal intro to thinking about random things, ideas and what not.
Anybody else had fun experiences with randomness?
