for those who like a random chat ;)

Researchers at The Australian National University have developed the fastest random number generator in the world by listening to the 'sounds of silence'.

The researchers - Professor Ping Koy Lam, Dr Thomas Symul and Dr Syed Assad from the ANU ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology - have tuned their very sensitive light detectors to listen to vacuum - a region of space that is empty.

Insane! I never in a million years would have thought uncertainty principle could have such use. This is rad! You can do a true Monte-Carlo with this stream of numbers! <chant repeat=TRUE>Physics rules</chant>.

Hey, now that's a good idea that makes sense.
