RPS - Not Just a Kids Game Anymore

Everyone's favorite kids game is sweeping bars across the nation -- Rock Paper Scissors. On Wednesday night at my favorite DC bar (The Rooster), I had the pleasure of competing in the newly formed USA Rock Paper Scissors League (USARPS). Open to the masses, and sponsored by my least favorite brand of water (Bud Light), slightly drunken people are encouraged to pull out their hands and go head-to-head with fellow barmates in hopes of winning a trip to the national tournament in my new favorite city (Las Vegas). While I only came in third, I was awarded a requisite rad RPS hat and watched fellow drinking pal Peter win the night. Next up: a trip across town to watch Peter compete to be the DC RPS winner. If he wins, off to Vegas and television fame he goes! Did I mention that A&E has signed on to telecast the USARPS League finals?

Who knew such a casual game of chance could become such a contest of skill? Next, we'll probably be be hearing that, like breakdancing a few years ago, RPS is "poised to become the next Olympic sport." Time to start training!

Congrats. Do you wear the hat to work? Is Peter getting all the babes now? Way to go, Petey!

You know, RPS is all the rage in Japan. It is such a respected art that they use it to settle legal disputes and decide who the next emperor will be. Really. They're sick for the game.

And for more RPS fun, I submit this.

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see
if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this
is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Today, I went to the beach with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
