this will help There is a well-known device due to Von Neumann for turning an unfair coin into a fair coin. We can use this device to solve our problem here.
Repeatedly draw two bits from your biased source until you obtain a pair for which the bits are different. Now return the first bit, discarding the second. This produces an unbiased source. The reason this works is because regardless of the source, the probability of a 01 is the same as a probability of a 10. Therefore the probability of a 0 conditional on 01 or 10 is 1/2 and the probability of a 1 conditional on 01 or 10 is 1/2.

this will help The values 1.033 and -0.45 in the original code are the magic numbers that provide the scale 1.1 - 9.9. You should get the same results if you pass in 1.1 and 9.9 as the parameters $low and $high in the following code.
code :
function getRandomStrength($low, $high) {
    // TODO: validate the input
    $ln_low = log( $low, M_E );
    $ln_high = log( $high, M_E );
    $scale = $ln_high - $ln_low;

    $rand = ( mt_rand() / mt_getrandmax() ) * $scale + $ln_low;
    $value = round( pow( M_E, $rand), 1 );
    return $value;

Any of those help In your solution you generate an accumulated probability vector, which is very useful.
I have two suggestions for improvement:

it should still fix some issue I don't think I'll ever be convinced that you actually need this, but it was fun to write.
code :
#include <stdint.h>

#include <cmath>
#include <cstdio>

FILE* devurandom;

bool geometric(int x) {
  // returns true with probability min(2^-x, 1)
  if (x <= 0) return true;
  while (1) {
    uint8_t r;
    fread(&r, sizeof r, 1, devurandom);
    if (x < 8) {
      return (r & ((1 << x) - 1)) == 0;
    } else if (r != 0) {
      return false;
    x -= 8;

double uniform(double a, double b) {
  // requires IEEE doubles and 0.0 < a < b < inf and a normal
  // implicitly computes a uniform random real y in [a, b)
  // and returns the greatest double x such that x <= y
  union {
    double f;
    uint64_t u;
  } convert;
  convert.f = a;
  uint64_t a_bits = convert.u;
  convert.f = b;
  uint64_t b_bits = convert.u;
  uint64_t mask = b_bits - a_bits;
  mask |= mask >> 1;
  mask |= mask >> 2;
  mask |= mask >> 4;
  mask |= mask >> 8;
  mask |= mask >> 16;
  mask |= mask >> 32;
  int b_exp;
  frexp(b, &b_exp);
  while (1) {
    // sample uniform x_bits in [a_bits, b_bits)
    uint64_t x_bits;
    fread(&x_bits, sizeof x_bits, 1, devurandom);
    x_bits &= mask;
    x_bits += a_bits;
    if (x_bits >= b_bits) continue;
    double x;
    convert.u = x_bits;
    x = convert.f;
    // accept x with probability proportional to 2^x_exp
    int x_exp;
    frexp(x, &x_exp);
    if (geometric(b_exp - x_exp)) return x;

int main() {
  devurandom = fopen("/dev/urandom", "r");
  for (int i = 0; i < 100000; ++i) {
    printf("%.17g\n", uniform(1.0 - 1e-15, 1.0 + 1e-15));

it fixes the issue If you have your words in a list words, random.choice(words) will uniformly randomly select a word from the list.
If you only have word lengths, I'd store the lengths and counts in a list:
code :
len_counts = [
    (1, 24), # 24 1-length words
    (2, 39), # 39 2-length words

I wish this helpful for you Discussion:
Hi. It is very interesting problem. It needs quite an effort to be solved properly and not always solution can be found.
