    Re: World championships

    A couple of years ago on one of the morning shows, they had a segment on the national Rock, Paper, Scissors championship. They actually have local competitions around the country. Anyway, they were talking to the winner. He was talking about his superior "strategy". I think he was actually serious.

    I was hoping that your link included photos of Mr. Fur Face.

    I am very amused that this thread calls up an ad for NBC's Olympic coverage.

    I was actually watching ESPN2 one afternoon and came across the rock, paper, scissors national championship. It was pretty funny on how the competitors get all pumped up and talk about strategy. (i.e. "I knew he was going to throw rock by the way his hand was tilted. He throws rock 64% of the time in the second round. blah, blah, blah)
