@mcbure
You are asuming that the event is good.

if(random) {
switch(random) {
case WallyHasNoCoffe:
PrepareMoreCoffee();
break;

case SpaceLemursInvaded:
MoveCEOAndHisMoneyToUndergroundBunker();
AskLeaderToTakeWally();
break;

case CompanyAboutToGoUnder:
PrepareCEOGoldenParachute();
DownsizeCompany();
AskForBailout();
if(BailOutFailed()) {
GoBankrupt();
return;
}

default:
LaunchCEOEscapePod();
RunForTheHills();
return;
};
}

etc.

@saywhatwhat
I guess for the PHB it's the Calvin&Hobbes version:

“Calvin: Know what I pray for?
Hobbes: What?
Calvin: The strength to change what I can, the inability to accept what I can't, and the incapacity to tell the difference.”

Recycling ideas are the keys to success

The PHB seems to be paraphrasing the twentieth century American theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr,

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference."

@rxantos we must assume that random events can occur (which may slower or faster our work), so you're missing this statement:

if (random) SetSucceeded(true);

BTW. last frame touched the idea :)
