hello for this i am using : The Spinner  Your Decision Maker I am going to test how fair the "random" online spinner after 60 spins the results for a spinner set on power 5 and drag 5 and has the option of landing on 1 or 2 the results are: 1:31 2:29 they are close to what you should get, they are off by 1 you should get a 0.5 chance of it landing on 1 or 2 but are the chances really 0.5 or 1/2? i will have a post up so, you can try it with a program i will personally make for the next part of this experiment. do you think its fair?

If you are the real "skynet", I will not participate into perfecting A.I. decision making, mankind has milleniums ahead to live.
