Random Number is the 221st xkcd comic.
The comic shows a Java/C or another C-style programming language code snippet.
The function always returns a constant number (4). This is not quite a random number.
A list of "random numbers" generated by this function would be:
4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4…
However, the author claims that the constant "4" has been determined by a fair roll dice (which is a common example for random number generation) - and is thus suited as a random number.
"RFC 1149.5 specifies 4 as the standard IEEE-vetted random number."
