Sigh... All I am trying to say here is that the dice rolls are not random. I am not critcizing the program, in fact I repeatedly have said how much I enjoy it. All I am saying is that the dice rolls are not random. The computer code means nothing to me, I am not a programmer. Hearing that it is a wi...

I understand that it is statistically possible, but in actuality it is virtually impossible, especia...
