Note: the number 6755399441055744 is special:  it's 0.75 * 2**53, and was deliberately chosen so that the non-uniformity is easily exhibited by looking at residues modulo 3.  For other numbers of this size, the non-uniformity is just as bad, but demonstrating the non-uniformity clearly would have taken a little more work.
