Do you have anything special in your config?

In this case that is only how to insert a bunch of rows that have only numbers and timestamps as these are types that `generate_series` supports.
Maybe someone will actually find it useful, so not saying that a tip is completely useless but personally I think it will be very rare for it to be actually fit for purpose.
A huge majority of the time when I need to generate fake data there are other data types involved and usually, there are some constraints between them as well.
Other tips sound very nice and will keep them in my notes.
I had never thought of using generate_series for inserting random data, but like you said for some tables it doesn't make sense to use purely random values.
