任意

rènyì - arbitrary; at will; at random

I came across this word while reading old emails, as I once like to do. It was in an email from 2006, which mentioned, among other things, trying to learn Chinese and making a simulation of particles. It seems that little has changed. Anyway, though I knew both characters, I still didn't know this word and it turns out to be an excellent, and most useful word. I'm very pleased to have discovered it. I just need to work out how I can use it.

从一副牌中任意选出一张
