I wonder whether number choice will fallo Benford's Law.

I have a feeling that would actually show a Gaussian distribution, perhaps with a peak in the lower digits (1-10 or so). So, you would see more number start with a 4 or 5 than a 1, or it would at least lack the logarithmic distribution that Benford's law has.
