This word is now a noun as well as an adjective. It refers to a person whom you meet 'randomly', or whose identity or relation to anybody else is unknown. It is often used to refer to people you meet at parties or on nights out, whose names you don't know or forget, and whom you never see again.

You can also say 'random guy', 'random girl' etc.
"Who's that guy standing in the background of this photo with a mop on his head?"
-- "I dunno, just a random who followed us in off the street, I think. He slept in the shed."

"I didn't really know anybody there so I was just chatting to randoms all night."

1) adj. Having no specific pattern, cause, or objective. Often used in statistics.

2) The latest in a long line of buzzwords that teenagers use to replace meaningful conversation. Could be used as the focal point of the next general election campaign, eg 'We pledge to take forceful action against the word random, and against those that promote or condone its misuse, for example 14 year-olds. A special street task force will be created and empowered to clamp down on this blight sweeping our nation, using extreme force and/or death to eliminate offenders.'
- Take a random number and multiply it by itself.
- We spoke to twenty random passers-by about this subject.

Person: Excuse me, do you have the time please?
Idiot1: Monkey past cheese!
Idiot2: Ha ha haha Random!!
Idiot1: Haha hahaha!
Person: Die you fuckers *opens fire*

A decidedly ironic word.

Considering that when words such as cheese become officially considered as random words they then cease to become random and in fact become irritating and even dull.

Maybe another word should be created for things which are turly said out of the blue as using the word random just demeans them.
Inane idiot 1 - HEHE Cheese!

Inane idiot 2 - That was, like, so random.

The most annoying word ever. You'll say something that relates to your previous topic, yet they say it's random because they can't comprehen it.
"Cake is good. I just got one from the bakery, and it was chocolate."

"That was random, LMFAO."

"No, you asshole, we're still talking about cake."
