In 1955 the RAND Corp published a book of “A Million Random Digits With 100,000 Normal Deviates” well before the days of personal computers with random number generators.

From the reviews- This review is from: A Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates (Paperback)
An unbelievable translation from the original french, A Million Random Digits is the best postmodern literature piece written in the 21st century. The fragmented narrative and themes are consistent and masterfully woven through every of the 600 pages. I cried, even at the ending that seemed to lack all coherency. As the narrator said, in the end, it really is all “1 0 0 1″.

There are 371 reviews for this book. I wonder if anyone actually bought it?

    I nearly split my gut on this one:

    “I was reading this masterpiece while walking down the sidewalk, totally captivated. I wandered onto the street and BAM! I was completely blindsided by a fully loaded iron ore cargo vessel. This book should be purchased in conjunction with How to Avoid Huge Ships for safety reasons.

    Spoiler Alert! 431115 did it.”

    Thumb up +3

    “with 100,000 Normal Deviants”

    That’s not only a great name for a band, but a goal for iOTW to acheive in readership.

    Thumb up +1
