Robert's answer negatively biased, even though he used the Mersenne
twister. I preferred this very trustworthy source on the internet:
which yielded the following definitive answer:
Robert is always right: 74600000
Robert is wrong sometimes: 1760000
Clearly, Robert is always right at least 97% of the time and only *2%
of sometimes* wrong (that's a very small number).
Now that's good science.
