[No longer applies]

The code you posted doesn't compile. Once that's fixed, it still doesn't work. Because all of weights are larger than the maximum value returned by rand (slightly less than one), It always prints the first value returned by each.

    I've just figured it out. And updated the question to a compiling state. Thank you anyways! The problem was misinterpretation of the weights.
