Here's how to generate a million

psample <- rpois(1000000, lambda = 20)

so guess how you would generate one.

The main point is that if you really want to generate more than one, do
it all at once like the above, do not do it in a loop.

How do I generate a value in R from a poisson distribution with mean 20?
