| Hi,
| I've created a method where the script defines twenty variables and
| several of them should be random having a maximum and a minimum value.
| What I did was this:
| from random import randrange as rr, random
| self.tr2_vezes = self.rr(self.d_tr2_vezes[0],self.d_tr2_vezes[-1],
| 1)     # just an example, others are similar

Are we to presume that self.rr is rr?

| The minimum and maximum limits are never lower than -50 and higher
| than 250 and are integer.
| Many times, not always, the problem is that the script just loops
| forever and no value is chosen for the variable.
| What's happening here?  What am I doing wrong?

On what line does it 'loop forever'?
Are you saying that the same code with same input sometimes works and 
sometimes does not?  In any case, try to reduce it to the minumum that 
either always or sometimes fails.  And post that.
