The laws of physics, namely quantum mechanics, do include randomness in them. Everything is probabilistic in principle. Usually, this randomness isn't manifested at large scales, but under certain circumstances it can be. That's how you build a hardware RNG. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardware_random_number_generator

All web browsers and most other Internet apps these days will try IPv6 first if DNS reports an AAAA name. That's not true. It used to be like that several years ago, but most modern OS will prefer IPv6 for DNS lookups if and only if the computer has native (that is no 6to4 or teredo) address. Otherwise IPv4 is preferred.
