    Flying

    1#

    It's always 1 to 6,
    it's always 15 to 20,
    it's always 5,
    but it's never 21,
    unless it's flying.

    What is this and why?

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">It's a die.

    "1 to 6": the numbers on the faces of the die,
    "15 to 20": the sum of the exposed faces when the die comes to rest after being thrown,
    "5": the number of exposed faces when the die is at rest,
    "never 21": the sum of the exposed faces is never 21 when the die is at rest,
    "unless it's flying": the sum of all exposed faces when the die is flying is 21 (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6).
