The title sounds a little misleading, as the most common source of radioactivity around humans is the local air, especially Radon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Background_radiation#Background_dose_rate_examples). But it sure is catchy!
Why do you take 8 measurements? Wouldn't 3 be enough (possibly repeat if the value exceeds 6, for unbiased random numbers)? And why does your die have at least 8 sides?
