Pinned, entropy augmented, digitally normal distribution, of no particular work-related use and thus perfectly suitable for today. Code in R:

iters = 1000
sd = 2
precision = 20
 
results = rep(0,iters)
 
for(i in 1:iters) {
	x = floor(rnorm(20,5,sd) %% 10)
	results[i] = paste(c('.',x),sep="",collapse="")
}
 
results = as.numeric(results)
 
plot(density(results,bw=.01),col="blue",lwd=3,bty="n")
