1. My "perplex" logic might sound stupid to you but please hear me out.

I have mentioned this somewhere else before but no one really replied so I just ignored it.

I'm suggesting that all dice of this nature http://www.logodesignweb.com/stockph...games/dice.jpg .... are unequal.

So on a regular dice there are 6 sides, 1,2,3,4,5,6

Each side has some sort of semi sphere dot, which represents the number on that side and this semi sphere is tiny dug out into the plastic of the dice. So, if you have more holes it means that side will weigh less? ....

So would it be fair to say that the side "1" is the least likely outcome because of its weight? And "2" would be second least likely outcome and so on.

Tell me if you understand what i'm trying to say because if i'm right its kind of wrong for people to claim that all sides are equally likely outcomes, as taught in school.

Thanks.

3. Makes sense. But given the tiny ratio between dimple weight and total dice it might take a whole lot of dice rolls to see the effect.

4. Your observations seem sound. However, minor adjustment to the perfect cubical faces of the dice could counter this issue. Are you sure that dice manufactured for casinos do not have such and adjustment made? And what of the sweat and grease that may tend to build up randomly on the dice through use? (And the aeordyanmic effect of the indentations should also be considered. )

5. It would be very easy to test the hypothesis. Why not conduct an experiment?

6. Proper casino dice have straight edges and printed dots.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dice :

"Precision casino dice, used for the game of craps, may have a polished finish, making them transparent, or a sand finish, making them translucent. Casino dice have their pips drilled, and then filled flush with a paint of the same density as the acetate used for the dice, such that the dice remain in balance. In casino play, a stick of 5 dice is used, all stamped with a matching serial number to prevent a cheater from substituting a die."

8. Thanks a lot for the feedback guys , was just curious.
