This is for Stata 10 and assuming you want normally distributed random
variables.

/* begin */
clear*
set seed 12345
set obs 20
g var1 = rnormal(15, 4)
g var2 = rnormal(18, 6)
summ
/* end */

To every ω-consistent recursive class κ of formulae there correspond
recursive class signs r, such that neither v Gen r nor Neg(v Gen r)
belongs to Flg(κ) (where v is the free variable of r).
