    Why thats sweet, another sport I can play while drinking at the same time. I'll just have to look out for those rocks.

    Yep, I discovered this a few years ago. Funny thing, even though I'm right-handed, my left hand is always victorious over my right......the damnedest thing.

    yes!

    Just very bored and lazy!

    Talk about niche marketing gone amuck!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    paper covers rock.
    That's not right, rock goes right through paper!
    Well then, what beats rock?
    Nothing beats rock.
    1,2,3, shoot.
    Damn, another tie.
