 RANDOMNESS n. An unexplainable misfeature; gratuitous inelegance.
       Also, a hack or crock which depends on a complex combination of
       coincidences (or rather, the combination upon which the crock
       depends). "This hack can output characters 40-57 by putting the
       character in the accumulator field of an XCT and then extracting 6
       bits -- the low two bits of the XCT opcode are the right thing."
       "What randomness!"
