And our dead?  They float untethered on the battlefield.
 (DSC/Qov "Battle At the Binary Stars" [NON-CANON])

 (qep’a’ 2019):  For random numbers, as when throwing dice, use the verb {'al} "float" instead of {Haw} ["be random, arbitrary, unpredictable, fortuitous"]:  
	mI' 'al    	(a) random number
	'al mI' 		the number is random.  
There is also a slang expression {Du'Hom mI'} "random number" (literally "garden number").
