I'd love to use this as an rng.

If you're looking for some fun, you can reverse bias a zener diode and measure the noise that comes out of it. It's shot noise, and you can measure it quite easily with just some simple passives and an ADC.

Wow never thought of that, that's a good idea.

I'll give it a try.
