in reply to Is this really random?

Well, actual probability of getting 5 heads and 5 tails is C(10,5)*p(head)^5*p(tail)^5 = (10!)/(5!*5!)*(0.5^5)*(0.5^5) = 0.24609375, so you probably won't always get this result.
(See Bernoulli trial for more information)
Sorry if my advice was wrong.

[Your Mother]: Just Another Perl 'Acker.
[LanX]: I pronounce it 'juːmən'
[Your Mother]: Hey, let's not bring antisemitism into the conversation.
[LanX]: for centuries posh English speakers tried to approach French, that's where all the trouble starts
[Eily]: Just another Perl coeurs
[Eily]: (perl with hearts, 'Acker with a French accent is pronunced like coeurs)
[LanX]: IMHO 'ju' for 'u' happens in English where they can't pronounce the French u (or German )
[LanX]: and I'm sure I read that *hotel* used to be pronounced 'otel by the English upperclass
[Your Mother]: American English vowels are pretty lazy/mumbly in general.
