HistoryThe Randomness Experiment was concepted on June 18, 2001, and carried out on June 19, 2001. It was originally the brainchild of Jeffrey Grafton, but after presenting his idea to Mike Mott (aka Moo), it was instantly seen as a brilliant plan.
Thus, it was carried out as planned.

The PlanThe victim would be randomly approached and offered a gift as an "end of the year" present. As he/she opened the gift, his/her reaction to the old, battered grape juice was photographed using a digital camera. Depending on the acceptability of the action of the victim (ie, not running away with the grape juice or tearing the bag), the victim would be told what was going on, offered the chance to see his/her picture, and given a kiss*. Below are the victims, in semi alphabetical order by first name. Kudos to you all!
