Seriously. In which universe does a piece of paper gets to win over a chunk of rock? Scissors get Paper, Rock brakes Scissors, makes sense but Paper cover Rock?! Can't the rock just tear though the paper and leave a big fucking hole in the middle? I mean even my 6 year old daughter have brought this issue up to me today and I had no choice but to agree with her.

So I ask you guys. Do you think the whole Paper Vs. Rock thing? Do you think we need to revamp the rules? Maybe replace paper with a sheet of Tungsten or Titanium? but I guess then you have to revamp the whole scissor issue. Maybe replace Scissors with a light saber but then light saber also wins over rock. UGH!

Hmm. We should also revent the rules for hopscotch and 4 ball. Also rock titanium scissors!

I'm personally a fan of foot, nuclear bomb, cockroach. Paper can be a thing of the past!

Why not just change it to Sword/Spear/Axe? Makes far more sense than fighting with paper and rocks when one person has a stabbing implement.

I just play dremel, which wins in all three counts.

@jakob187:

That is not some combination of rock, paper, or scissors, so it is illegal. I still win.

You have to understand that rock, paper, scissors game is just a ruse for the real game of physical violence underneath it.

Paper: I am going to slap you in the face! What are you going to do about it?

Scissors: I am going to poke your eyes out, that's what! What are you going to do about it?

Rock: Poking is too slow. Before you try to poke I am going to punch you in the face. What now?

Paper: Slap is faster, plus more coverage of surface area. Top that!

And on and on and on. You get the point.

Paper ALWAYS covers rock. Do not debate this, only bad things will happen.

I also love weekend forum threads!

@ImmortalSaiyan:

Nothing can beat Stone Origami Swan. FUCKING NOTHING. (If we're talking about Venustoise, then directing lightning won't do jack shit against whatever the hell that is.)

#20 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -

It is actually enough paper to cover every rock on the planet seven times, so paper wins. Also: Pretty relevant.

#21 Posted by JasonR86 (9578 posts) -

@mordukai:

Cause paper wraps up rock man! Then, like, rock can't do its thing. Like...its rock-thing.

#22 Posted by Viking_Funeral (1725 posts) -

Rocks are very stupid. You put something over their heads, like paper, and they fall asleep like birds.

Or maybe the paper is cold, hard cash. Rocks are also very easy to bribe.

#23 Posted by JazzyJeff (399 posts) -

"It comes from an ancient Chinese tradition where when a request was sent to the ruler on a piece of "paper" or the equivalent at the time, the rock was placed over the paper if the request was accepted, the paper was draped over the rock, indicating defeat of the request, if the request was rejected. Hence, paper over rock = defeat."

#28 Posted by Trilogy (2637 posts) -

You would have to find something to replace it that would not only make sense in beating rock but BEING BEATEN by scissors at the same time. It has to come full circle!

#29 Posted by DoctorWelch (2774 posts) -

I think the theory is that the paper is some kind of alien creature that consumes and absorbs its prey by wrapping itself around the object/creature which basically makes it just like the alien from the movie The Thing. The problem is, the scissors can just cut through the creature which disallows its wrapping absorption abilities to take effect. So basically I'm saying it should be Rock, Thing, Scissors.

Yep. Rock, Paper, Scissors was invented by the same guy that came up with Peek-a-boo. He later went on to create the AI used in all stealth games.

#37 Posted by PolygonSlayer (419 posts) -

Not sure where I read this ages ago, but I think in the games origins; 'paper' used to be 'sack' or 'bag'. The idea being that you put the rock into the bag I suppose. Somewhere down the line it became 'paper' for whatever reason. Then again... I seem to remember reading this long time ago or I might have dreamt it... both equally possible :P

#38 Posted by SinGulaR (2249 posts) -

We used to play rock, paper scissors with a fourth thing. It's called "the well". The well wins against everything except paper because everything drops into it. Except paper, which covers it. Anyway:

If you want to see an instance where paper loses against rock, see it in this movie. ;) Or maybe it was in the first one. I don't remember.

#39 Edited by JackSukeru (5897 posts) -

@Jimbo: Different country. Though I always thought of the bag as a thin plastic one, as a kid, so it wouldn't really work any better.

@Sackmanjones: It's okay. In the end, we both lost because I had to look for a picture of a penis demon at work and got weird looks because of it.

It's papa', son. You know, some Benjis. You buy a sledgehammer with it and crush the rock.

#49 Edited by MarkWahlberg (4580 posts) -

Scissors= cutting force

Rock= crushing force

Paper= smothering force

METAPHORS, MOTHERFUCKER.

#50 Posted by MrJorOwe (278 posts) -

I googled this issue. I came up with this quote from an obviously jolly man "When I play rock/ paper/ scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper I can punch them in the face with my ready made fist and say, oh, I'm sorry, I thought paper would protect you, you stupid ****."

I don't know the real answer, but don't question it. Science?
