Hello, 

Is Test::Unit always producing 0 errors?  

I have the solution!  

Stir in a packet of RandomMethod and "Hey Presto!", a return to the
delights of indeterminacy!

# Raison D'etre: Because I can!?
# Acknowledgements: I used a bit of John W. Long's posting to ruby-talk
from 2004-07-31 for the random bit although it looks a bit different
now.  
# Changes: It is within a begin-rescue block now, since no parameters
are being passed it would sometimes fail and so will now try until it
finds a method that works without parameters.  

module RandomMethod
  def random_method
    begin
      methods = self.methods
      random_method = methods[rand(methods.size)]
      self.send(random_method)
    rescue
      random_method
    end
  end
end

Perhaps this can be my entry into Ruby Quiz of the Week's as yet
unannounced 'quiz': 'Stupidest Ruby Code Ever Competition?'  Perl has
competitions for obfuscation; how about we go for obtuseness?  

Actually is there *any* good purpose to this?

P.S. I've already started thinking about the next version, or a similar
thing, which will automatically randomize methods on object creation or
method call using meta-classes...
