Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock

Korea is in love with rock paper scissors (gawi bawi bo). As a matter of fact, for years I've played an online game from Korea, and I knew that the little symbols were rock, paper, scissors, I just didn't know that the commands for them were the direct Korean translation (thus how I knew how to spell it above). I find the irony delightful. In the most recent episode of my favorite show, then (that's right, Michael, Jim, Pam, and Dwight, you've been ousted) they explored the concept of RPS. If two people know each other well, Sheldon explains they will result in a tie 75-80% of the time. Here is his solution.

This is our favorite show ever!!!

While on our recent trip to LA we saw the taping of the second episode of this current season. What a great time and cast is a riot.

RPSLS in this episode was just over the top.

Get well soon!
