Augmented Luck

My wife will shake the dice for minutes because her roll will be higher. Entire. Minutes.

But we all have our little rituals, such as only rolling on books and not the table, preventing other people from touching our dice, or keeping dice neatly ordered with the highest number on top. Does it actually matter? Do any of these esoteric rites really impact how well dice actually roll, shifting the odds of chance in our favour?

Yes. Of course they do. Anyone who says otherwise is just a statistician trying to justify the expense of years of schooling.
