Via Tyler Cowen, we learn that:

Marc Grossman, the U.S. ambassador to Turkey in the mid-1990s, recalled telling his staff to take their own security precautions. After losing embassy employees to attacks, he advised staffers to keep a six-sided die in their glove compartments; to thwart ambushes, they should assign a different route to work to each number, he said, and toss the die as they left home each morning.

Does anyone other than hard-core nerds specify that they’re talking about a six-sided die? I feel like normal people don’t even realize that they make other kinds.
