I'm not even sure if they are serious, but I've heard many times that some people refuse to not only trust their computer to generate a random string (which is understandable) but also don't trust themselves to do it. So, instead of simply typing/writing down:
And then randomly changing a few of those to other ones a few seconds later, such as one in the beginning, one in the middle and one in the end, they use dice which they roll again and again to generate random numbers, which are then treated as "truly random" and thus "truly secure".
Why would a dice roll be "more random" than simply coming up with a sequence in your head, and then changing some of them?
I simply don't believe that this could possibly be "not secure". Why the need to do the very tedious dice rolling? It feels like a ritual that they go through, based not on logic and reason, but on some sort of delusion that their brain is going to generate the same sequence as others who guess it, or a computer, even though they also change some of them after the phrase is "done".
I don't understand this. Is there anything that speaks for this practice as being "more random"/"more secure"?
