I understand how scissors can beat paper, and I get how a rock can beat scissors, but there is not way that a stupid piece of paper could beat rock. Is paper supposted to magically wrap around rock and leave it immobile? And Why cant paper do this to scissors? You know what? Screw scissors, why can't paper do this to people? Why aren't sheets of college ruled notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they take notes in class? I'll tell you why, because paper can't beat anybody!!! A rock would tear up that crap in 2 seconds. When I play rock-paper-scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper I can punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say, oh crap I'm sorry, I thought that paper would protect you, moron!Imagine if these people played like I do. there would be a lot of people coming out with bloody noses and black eyes.
