Summary:Random cheatsheet search term
Description:It would be a way to do a random post search with the restriction of tags. Basically, you put a special term in the search box and it sorts the posts randomly. It could look like sort:random or sort:shuffle or something.
Additional Info:Sorting by score is nice, but you start to see the same posts after a while, even though there are a lot of good ones that have lower scores. It would be nice to mix them up to bring to the surface some posts that are deep in most searches.

One problem might be how the random line up of posts will be preserved between pages. You could store the RNG's seed in a cookie or right in the URL. Or maybe only display a single page. It would be helpful though if they didn't change just from refreshing the page.

Another idea along the same vein would be a link that sends you to random tag post search. Basically it randomly picks a tag out of all the ones available and does a post search with that tag.
