An ode to randomness

Throughout the ages the word randomness has been defined and redefined but people can cant quite get the actual meaning of it. Of course we could just put this off and use the word flow'st to describe it, but it just wouldn't hit the spot completely as we want to know the deeper meaning. Below are a few of the common definitions that people have come up with.

                                        
                                        

  

 
Wikipedia's definition: "A lack of predictability"
Webster.com's definition: "Lacking a definite plan"
The Free Dictionary's definition: "Having no specific pattern" 
Answers.com's definition: "Of or relating to an event in which all outcomes are equally likely"                                                                                                         
The Online Dictionary's definition: '"An inexplicable misfeature"
SOTK's definition: "Unpredictable facts being spoken without thinking"

So, now that you have heard some of the definitions of the term random, what do YOU think it means. I am not asking you to search it up in your browser, or look in that old dictionary on your shelf,  just your own un-altered opinion on the definition of the randomness.

There is only one word that can define randomness for me *puffs up like a robin*: Flow'st and rabbits.

Hmmm, random........to me means...spur of the moment doing something in the opposite direction of where you were heading originally. Kind of like you, SOTK, planning on doing a full day of school only to be distracted by the waving of the branches blowing in the wind and that tree beckoning you to climb it. :)

Flow'st, I love it!

A non-fatal disease with symptoms including uncontrollable topic changes, uncalled for funny comments, and unpredictability.

@Child of God,

Shucks *turns head to side and avoids eye contact*, I never could fool you...Nonetheless a great definition on randomness!

@ Kaleb,

Great explanation! I find it interesting how you would classify it as a disease, at least it is one that I won't actually mind catching.
Thanks for your opinion!

@ Child of God,

Yeah, yeah...I know.

Using flow'st--! Why, I oughta... ;)

@ Jake,

Well it would work, just think of this definition:
Randomness=flow'st! It sounds great. Oh by the way I just realized that I didn't include a citation for your word. I will put that in right now!

Hey, you asked for a def. of random. That works, doesn't it? XD

Son of the King said...

The Director,

Mm, another one about rabbits...but still it does define random in a very creative way.

The Director said...

I could have put a *real* definition but I was feeling *random* hahaha....

Rabbits appear to equal random, huh?
