Now the demographics generator has an option to use each option in a given category only once in the result set.

That means that if you have a "tropes" option set, say, and you're planning to use it to fill out a bingo card (as I did in my last example), you can click a clickybox and not have to worry about repeated tropes showing up on your eventual card. You can still freely rotate through three universes/fandoms, while making sure that every single trope prompt is different.

You could also conceivably do this to generate random casts of characters. So, you could have "protagonist", "sidekick," "antagonist", etc, make sure the generator only generates one listing for each of them, but randomize all the other attributes like gender, age, profession.

Or you could set two sets of "use each option only once" categories and have the algorithm decide who you need to marry, shag, and throw off a cliff.

(As a curiosity, here are my algorithmically-generated answers to that:

Character: Hal 9000
Action: Throw off cliff

Character: My inner Tyler Durden
Action: Marry

Character: GLaDOS
Action: Shag

Please note that I never said that the algorithm would give you good advice.)

And here we have deep insight into the workings of Veleda's brain:

Step one: 0_o "That's horrible!"

Step two: "Huh. I wonder how that would even work."

Step three: "Oh yeah, I could write kinky fanfic about that."

I refuse to contemplate marrying my inner Tyler Durden, however. I do have standards.
