I've tried about a dozen, but now I keep only the one I like (DiceToGo if you're interested).

Nat20 FTW!

Oh, I also keep a 20 sided die on my desk at work. At home, they're littered all over the place.

That is incorrect. It is only "almost impossible" for humans who are ****** pieces of ****. (Which is usually the half of cops who are only there because they need the power trip to balance out insecurities from childhood.)

For a decent human being it is quite easy to do as instructed in the police academy.

Same with not taking into account the persons race or social status. Piece of **** cops have trouble doing that. Decent cops do not.
