It might help that you don't have to fully sort the list.
All that should be required is to traverse the list looking for the
post that is less than the rand post but greater than any other post
which is also less. In addition find any post that is greater than the
rand post but less than all other posts which are greater.

So a single loop through the titles should give you want you need.
