Ah, the old D20.

Yeah, in the 1970's Dungeons And Dragons was created.  This was a game played with many various sided dice to affect attributes of the game (like the number of hit points your attack took from a monster), one of which was the D20.  You see, a 20 sided die gives you a 1 in 20 odds of any number coming up.  Multiple 6-sided dice have various probabilities for the numbers they can produce.

Also, in the 1950's the cool kids used to hang 2 fuzzy 6-sided dice from the mirror -- I don't KNOW what that was supposed to mean.  Good luck?

So hanging 2 20-sided dice on your car mirror means you're nostalgic (the 1950's reference) but for a 1970's product.  Thus muppet's amusement.

And of course, if you have to explain it, it's no longer funny.  Sorry about that.

Allan, I think I'm just going to start moderating you for being retarded.

Anyway, the dude KNOWS what a D20 is because the term "D20" isn't even USED in the product title or description.

d for dice, 20 for the range of numbers on it. Role playing games in general and DnD in particular rely on a number of unusual sized dice.

"because the term "D20" isn't even USED in the product title or description"

Sure it is.

From the description:

"Welcome to the future my friends: fuzzy d20 dice"

Oh allright so it's there.

But the product description also tells you pretty clearly what they are.

no it doesn't. it just says that they are somehow more modern, hip or whatever.

There couldn't be the slight possibility that you shot your mouth off in a crass, aggressive fashion, while being totally and utterly *wrong*, and in full public view, could there, you stupid little moron?

You don't know what a 20 sided die is, and I'M a moron?

In order to not know what a 20 sided die is, you'd have to not know what DICE are.

I know what it is, in a literal sense, shithead - I didn't know how or where it was used or what the significance of it was. Now I do, thanks to Alan.

So fuck off.

Ah, so your question should have been "What use is there for 20 sided dice?" and not "What ARE 20 sided dice."

The word "is" has meanings above and beyond the literal one. This fact has obviously escaped your pathetically literal "brain".

Piss-shuffling intellectual coward.

Muppet was completely justified in his response. When a moron asks "what's a D20?" How else could muppet have possibly responded? Vitriol and humiliation is the ONLY appropriate response.

Thanks $--.

I know my pedantic entries are not appreciated by -- let's just say, a few people.  Sometimes I think, why bother?  I mean, I went to "Flair for the Obvious" school" very young, and I know I have a defective leg-pulling detector.  So I'm really easy to sucker in at times.

But sometimes it's nice to know I really am being useful.  Thanks.

I knew what octahedral & tetrahedral shapes were because of my D&D dice. I even brought some to school, but couldn't overcome the embarrasment related to owning them, so I never took them out of my pocket and all of my classmates, therefore, couldn't benefit from the visual aid.

no worries Alan. And I get a little kick out of giving our peabrained friend an occasional flaying.

Anybody who hangs a dangling distraction from their mirror is a moron. Dice, saints, temple gongs, whatever.
