"A standard number cube"?

"A standard number cube"? What, do they think a reference to dice will offend the fundies, since the Bible so clearly condemns gambling? Jesus H. Christ on a pogo stick with a sprig of parsley!

Yeah, they are pretty much out to make sure that the books don't offend anyone, since the same book (mostly) gets used everywhere in the country. No junk food, no crime, no diseases, no dice, no playing cards. And lots of other stuff.

actually, they still reference playing cards. the chapter on probability shows the suits and numbers. they're not portrayed as cards, but the Ace of Hearts is still represented as A [heart symbol].
