On the irony side, since this random selection picks something that is  
exactly the
opposite of what the NCAs thought out and then picked, you may be right.

On the serious side, I could have used more random seeds to get  
greater entropy,
but for this pick did not think it necessary.  Also for a complete  
discussion on the
random nature produced by the program please refer to the RFC.
