Does anyone know how i can randomize the order my two scenes in a flash movie play?

I don't always want scene 1 to come first...
Watch Question

Create a 3rd scene and make sure it plays first. Put the following actionscript on frame one of the new scene

dice = Math.floor(random(2)+1);
if (dice == 1) {
      gotoAndPlay("Scene 1", 1);
      gotoAndPlay("Scene 2", 1);      

and replace the "Scene 1" and "Scene 2" with the names of your scenes.
