    #!/bin/bash
    NUMBEROFCOMMITS=$(git log --all --oneline | wc -l)
    while :
      WHICHCOMMIT=$(( ( RANDOM % ${NUMBEROFCOMMITS} )  + 1 ))
      COMMITSUBJECT=$(git log --oneline --all -${WHICHCOMMIT} | tail -n1)
      COMMITSUBJECT_=$(echo $COMMITSUBJECT | cut -b0-60)
    do
      if [ $RANDOM -lt 14000 ]; then 
        printf "\e[1m%-60s \e[32m%-10s\e[m\n" "${COMMITSUBJECT_}"  ' PASSED'
      elif [ $RANDOM -gt 15000 ]; then...
