I suppose, if you wanted to perform a completely random act, you'd have to get someone else to make a list, and then roll a dice or flip a coin to see which one you were going to do. And even then, I'm sure some people would say that your unconscious would play a part in the person you chose, and maybe even how you rolled the dice or flipped the coin...

Otherwise, I agree, I think there's always an element of choice, even though your choices may be limited. If that makes sense.
Basically the plot of 'The Dice man' then?
