2.13 Trying Out the Shuffled Anagram List

Juppies 2 by Dr Heinz M. Kabutz

Time to try out our shuffled word list. The first time we run it, we start with the word "ocsnqeeutnyl". This is different to what our StaticWordList returned. Excellent, it seems to work. We try it again, this time we again get "ocsnqeeutnyl". Well, there is a possibility that we'd get the same word first twice in a row. That is how random works. It is unlikely, but possible. We try once more, and again we see that our first word is "ocsnqeeutnyl". Whilst possible, it is improbable that of all the words in our list, we would pick the same one each time. It looks like it is not as random as we had hoped.
