Thought these two were worth sharing:

Funny how odd skills seem to showcase themselves more frequently on the internet.

Is it just me or do I see absolutely no skill needed for dice stacking? Seems just a matter of physics. i.e. move the cup with enough force and get the dice to move around and they will plaster themselves to the side, stacking themselves.

I'd say it takes as much skill as a lot of things.  Control, timing, accuracy, etc.  If you think it takes no skill I suggest you try to do it and see for yourself.  icon_smile

The point is that Ebaum's World steals content and passes it off as their own.  Not to mention a few other dirty programming tricks designed to slow down / DOS a couple "competiting" websites.

It is just a matter of physics.  I couldn't tell how he was doing it, until I heard the sound that the cup was making.  He's catching them in the cup and managing to spin them to hold them to the wall.  Still  I thought it was a very nifty trick. I couldn't spin them that way meself.  In fact, I just tried.  d6s all over the place.  My cats and my daughters enjoyed it though.
