Let's have some fun! Whether it's a random fun fact, a personal goal, where you plan to go on vacation next, a piece of advice you picked up over the years, or even how many pets you have, we want to hear it! 🎉

    It was at my "usual vacation spot" which I last visited this month and again will visit in November, I first learned the Zebra fun fact mentioned above... (specifically on Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom).

    If you take any three dimensional solid with flat faces known as polyhedron- i.e. a cube, pyramid or a soccer ball - then add the number of faces to the number of vertices and then subtract the number of edges the answer will always be 2.  :)

    Borrowing someone else's code response, here's two similar lines excerpted from code i've written and maintain, in Kotlin:
    val r = Random()
    var Chosen = r.nextInt(size)
    or in Swift:

                var Chosen=Int(arc4random_uniform(UInt32(size)))


    This is from a random student picker as part of my app (android/iPad), in both cases things are done to ensure students are picked evenly (none more often than others).   In the case of Swift, I don't own an iPad and have not tested my code as much.
