    Paper, scissors, Rock

    I was just sitting around this morning....feeling no pain so to speak as normal people do on the morning of the first day of a three day weekend *breaths*

    And started thinking about the mechanics that make Paper, scissors, Rock a functional concept. The mechanics being that no matter what your choice, you can win, or get trumped.

    Then I began pondering how this relates to nature. How, no matter what the species, there is always another that can take you out. The lion eats the deer, the elephant steps on the lion, the mouse scares the elephant which, in turn has an arethmia and dies, the cat eats the mouse, the kid shoots the cat with a bb gun, turns around, and gets run over by a bus that swerved to avoid a deer.

    Hell, even the road runner seems to always out-wit the coyote who, by all the food chain rules, is intended to have the road runner for lunch.

    Ok, time to make coffee.

    3-0 on first try, fools.

    "Gambit! Match Victory! Scissor Sandwich!"

    Side note: I think there was a similar three-way system in Fire Emblem for GBA. That was a fun game.

    Its an annoying game. People always cheat, and use stuff like "The Nuke" and "The Butterfly" when I win too much.

    The bus is beaten by itself all the time. It never comes on time. The bus represents one of the few self-killers of the game.

    The bus is beaten by Dennis Hopper with a bomb, who is beaten by Keanu Reeves, who in turn is beaten by everyone who was disappointed with the last two Matrix movies.
