I don't care what the theory is. I may not understand it, in which case my changes to the code are non-sensical, but they basically boil down to this:

$num1 = rand(1000); $num2 = rand(1000); # pretend $num2 != $num1 $guess = rand($num1 * 2);
Are we asserting that $num2 > $guess more than 50% of the time?
