let's say we're playing a game with 3 dice, each of 6 sides. they're regular cubes, nothing special, but the numbers are different.

die A has 1 on two sides, 6 on two sides, and 8 on two sides.
die B has 2 on two sides, 4 on two sides, and 9 on two sides.
die C has 3 on two sides, 5 on two sides, and 7 on two sides.

the game goes like this:
we both pick a die. the third die is discarded. we may not have the same die
we roll against each other once. whoever rolls the lesser number must give the other $100.

you know i know how this game works so to convince you to play i let you chose who gets to pick a die first. should i pick first or should you? or does it make no difference?
i don't know why i feel so dry

I should pick first because die C has the best odds?

But what is on the other 2 sides of each die?

I'm illiterate.

Hmm I think I know what this is...
I think I've heard of sets of dice where say, die 1 is more likely to win against die 2, die 2 is more likely to win against die 3, and die 3 is more likely to win against die 1.

If that's the case, since you know which is which, I'd let you pick first.

EDIT: Ok yeah, like AeroRocker said, it's like a probabilistic rock-paper-scissors.

It's basically a game of rock-paper-scissors, so you want to pick second.

P(B > A) = 5/9
P(C > B) = 5/9
P(A > C) = 5/9

So yeah, choose first. If you choose A I'll choose B, if you choose B I'll choose C, if you choose C I'll choose A

Though it's not that much of an advantage either...

No, I see now that A beats B beats C beats A. Good puzzle though, but I told you I was in the minority that enjoyed these

Tone and some songs are goooorgeoussss but that album got pretty boring to me. That title track though is fucking incredible. Have you listened to Heir and Quiet, Pull the Strings?

Heir is closer in sound with a little more bite to it. First song is a banger, and I think the third track has one of the prettiest little riffs to it.

Quiet is further removed but has really interesting jams on it. The first track and the persistent birds through are great, but the ending on it trumps all.
