Er...threads have enough problems with non-deterministic behavior, you might want to refine that "requirement" a bit ?
And I spotted a rather gruesome wart in the midst of your example: invoking

Of course, making that edit changes the whole behavior of the threads: since its much faster, many threads will complete before other threads have even been started...so its not exactly simultaneous.
