Something is random, or something is not random. It's impossible to say that the cubes are random 'enough' because then the won't be random at all...
Btw, I think the dice are random.

Can this be merged with the Elvis is not Dead thread pls?

I don't know. I do know if you run a random generator program it will spit out relitively random #, but if that same program spits out a predetermined number of random numbers over and over again than those numbers start to show a pattern.
