This maybe?

$randnum = int(rand(100)); if ( $randnum > 20 ) #80% { #stuff for 1 } if ( $randnum > 90 ) #10% { #stuff for 2 and 3 }

    I don't want to be picky, but that would do #stuff for 1 70% of the time.

    It would do #stuff for 1 _and_ #stuff for 2 and 3 10% of the time.

    And 20% of the time it would do nothing...

    Remember to think before you code! :-P
