We at the GNOME project are constantly looking to improve our users experience.By doing a very complicated analysis of the procedure "shooting yourself in the foot", and taking in consideration that:
- There are variables like, angle of fire, the foot position relative to the body, the foot position relative to ground. the type of gun and ammunition used, how steady the hand of the user is, and about 42 others
- The user cannot be trusted to perform such complex task as "shoot yourself in the foot" and achieve perfect results, because it is impossible to manage so many variables by himself and even he can become scared and never shoot himself in the foot.
Thats why by studding the output of "cat /dev/random" we found the perfect balance between the variables. And now every user will be shot in the foot on sight with our perfect hard coded implementation of the void shoot-myself-in-the-foot();
