The statistics of the time evolution of a nonlinearly coupled system of first-order equations representing the Euler equations is studied. The probability distribution of functions is nearly Gaussian, while that of their time derivatives has exponential tails and moments of order 4, 6, and 8 that approach those of the exponential distributions.
