Poll: Rock, paper, scissors, SHOOT! (whichever choice has the most votes is your “opponent”)
  • 38.1% - ROCK! 876
  • 35.7% - PAPER! 819
  • 26.2% - SCISSORS! 602
2297 votes

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Primitive people use rocks.
Intellectual people use paper.
Sharp people use scissors.

Rock always wins, eventually...rock breaks scissors and uses the broken blades to carve paper into confetti.

It always ends the same way, with rock's opponents in pieces on the ground.

rock beats scissors
rock loses to paper

scissors beats paper
scissors loses to rock

paper beats paper
paper loses to rock

i'm not sure how paper loses to rock, but everything else being equal, or rules-base, rock never loses to paper or scissors.

rock is always the clear winner to me.

Yeah if the highest voted item is always your opponent then there is no way to win this game and I'm not playing a game where the best scenerio I can hope for is a tie!

Most people start with rock since it feels the strongest and is the easiest to throw. I therefore tend to lead with paper.

Rock is dead.
Long live Paper and Scissors.

Scissors cuts paper. Paper covers rock. Rock crushes lizard. Lizard poisons Spock. Spock smashes scissors. Scissors decapitates lizard. Lizard eats paper. Paper disproves Spock. Spock vaporizes rock. And as it always has, rock crushes scissors.

You CAN win, actually. The trick is to vote for the one that is NOT the highest and also beats the current highest. For instance, I just won by voting for paper when rock was the highest vote. Paper is my vote, rock is my opponent and Paper>Rock!

RPS society shirt will be the next derby. I'm in for a "rock to rule them all" shirt.

I chose paper because I figured rock would be the most common (and therefore my "opponent") and totally won.
