Weibull distribution

Ok, I'm busy today, so I'll keep it really short:

You can generate numbers in a Weibull distribution by using the exponential distribution formula, then raising the result to some power.
pow(-a*ln(1-x), b)
You should be able to see from the link that these distributions can be pretty useful. The article uses k. b = 1/k.
