First Nat'l Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament in Las Vegas

It’s American superficiality at its best in Las Vegas today as the World Rock, Paper, Scissors final tournament is being held. The prize? $50,000.

Oh yes, the same method you used to decide who had to go over the fence and get the baseball as a kid can earn you more than the annual income of most people in the industrialized world. There’s some very well-written commentary about the event in “The New York Times”: or you could just watch it on ESPN as it happens. Seriously.

For more about the world of Rock, Paper Scissors I found the “RPS Society website”: to be very helpful. They also have up to the minute tournament coverage on their main blog.
