    Hi everyone, I'm new here, not a scientist but I love science (don't we all?)

    I have a questions regarding any "safe" material that displays a measurable amount of random fluctuations?

    Some thing like a magnet that changes it's level of magnetism from time to time, the faster the better.

    Anything in mind?

    thanks all

    Hey, these are all cool and interesting ideas, thanks!

    Besides using entanglement can two things be bound in such a way they randomly fluctuate in sync?

    Or perhaps hve the same properties from the same "block".

    What about crystals or permanent magnets? Is it possible to take two magnets break each in half and know by the magnetic signature which pieces belong to each?

    Something like this?

    My guess is no, but... that's why I'm here

    The answer's yes , and it's the basis of Plate Tectonics.

    great answer, however, I couldn't use that particular idea in a lab or a travelling vehicle

    I'll keep thinking...
