The Dice-o-Matic is "a 7 foot tall, 104 pound, dice-eating monster, capable of generating 1.3 million rolls a day." It was built and is used by the owner of a gaming website, who received too many complaints of insufficient randomness on his previous computer-generated dice-rolling strategies. It is true that computers cannot generate TRULY random numbers... The Dice-o-Matic, however, is exactly as random as an actual dice roll. Because it does actually roll dice! A LOT OF DICE!

More info, including an awesome video of it in operation, here.

My God! What in the name of everything holy would Nathan Detroit think?
You called?
You're kidding! You mean they actually let you watch Rogers and Hammerstein musicals?!?

Also, not by Rogers & Hammerstein; it's a Frank Loesser work. So there.

Really? Now I'm honestly confused (my other comment was just wrong, not mistaken :-). Did Loesser do the libretto or the score? Off I go to Wiki...okay. Loesser did both score and lyrics, and a couple of guys I don't recognize (Swerling and Burrows) did the script. That's what I get for relying on my memory of the interminable Broadway musical LPs with which my mother filled my youth...
Haha, you're old!
(If you're referring to a particular musical, I missed it...)

>Confused look<
Uh...you mean my folks? Sure...why wouldn't they? I've seen productions of Oklahoma! live like 97 times...and I think I saw The King and I...
