Mac os X Yosemite

Hi there,
I try to connect a Textpath node to a scatter node like in this video :
But, each time I activate the scatter node i've got this message : "No module named random"
Could you help me please ?

    I use the version 3.0.43 for Mac
    I join the file.

    The error message is :
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/Applications/", line 2, in <module>
        from random import seed as _seed, uniform
    ImportError: No module named random

    That's weird -- the file has no issues here. Do you have a special version of Python installed by any chance?
