Talking Sea Monkey Random Number Generator


If you added a light detecter to a liquid cooling tube and added sea monkeys to the reservoir, would this be a good source of entropy?

Would the monkeys survive or do they prefer cool water?
What would one call the kernel driver?
What are the chances of the maintainers adding a seamonkey driver to the kernel?
