Generate a UUID

A UUID is a Universally Unique IDentifier, which is normally used to uniquely identify data in a system. This means, if you're using the proper length, it's extremely unlikely to mess up the above "magic" trick (especially if your audience doesn't know the standard length and therefore/most likely will chose a shorter UUID to generate on the spot and make it nearly impossible to mess up this trick). Try it at home with those around you! It'll be great.
