I understand that Scissors can beat Paper, and I get how Rock can beat Scissors, but there's no way Paper can beat Rock. Is Paper supposed to magically wrap around Rock leaving it immobile? If so, why can't paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors, why can't paper do this to people? Why aren't sheets of college ruled notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they attempt to take notes in class? I'll tell you why, because paper can't beat anybody, a rock would tear that crap up in two 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 ready made fist and say, oh, I'm sorry, I thought paper would protect you.

Although, chainsaw beats scissors, paper, AND rock!

    It comes from an ancient Chinese tradition where when a request was sent to the ruler on a piece of "paper" or the equivalent at the time, the rock was placed over the paper if the request was accepted, the paper was draped over the rock, indicating defeat of the request, if the request was rejected. Hence, paper over rock = defeat.

    *dumbest
    *(lack of capitalization when needed)
    *the term "tards" is not a word.
    You could have said ...
    "That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard of. They could have just said yes or no to the presented request, but they had to leave a visual indication due to a lack of ability to be present when the request was being made. I would like to apologize for my immense display of ignorance towards other cultures and their traditions."

    One way to find out, if someone beats your rock with paper, tell them to hold up their paper and hit it with your rock. Bonus points if you smack em in the mouth with the rock.

    My friend at school once was sick of the lack of logic in the game, so he invented a new game, shark, net, dolphin, dolphin bests shark through agility, , shark bites through net and escapes, net beats dolphin.

    Its a metaphor. Paper=money. Rock=power. Scissors=Intelligence. Money(paper) beats the power (rock)...Power beats intelligence...Intelligence beats the money :)

    O.O This game never made sense to me! T-T It's so improbable! That's why I just kick people in the shin and run away. Then rock has nothing on me.


    Rock pwns all, and Paper knew this. So Paper went and whined to the creators of the game long enough that they changed the rules so that Paper beat Rock. Rock, of course, was outraged! How could a flemzy piece of Paper beat the almigty powerful Rock?! Rock then challenged Paper to a duel. The winner would claim to be victorious over the other. To make sure there was no foul play, Sissors would referee. As soon as the epic battle was to begin a bomb struck the three of them, and they all perished. What's the moral of this story? When a bomb comes crashing upon you, Bomb wins; every time.

    Paper is obviously from Dunder Mifflin, and Dwight Schrute has given it special powers.

    Rock is really shy and will not speak up about being covered with the thin paper. He is just thankful for the break in eye contact. Some say he is autistic, being so quiet and all. I think that he is just contemplating the universe. speak covered thankful break eye contact autistic quiet contemplating universe

    covering the rock.

    Scissors cuts paper.
    Rock breaks scissors.
    Paper covers rock.

    I thought you had to learn that to play the game.

    being able to cover up a rock???
