Winston Scissor Hands

New Scientist recently reported that the best opening move in the game "Stone Paper Scissors " ,was scissors .
Research shows that stone is the most popular of the three possible moves in the game of quick fire hand gestures. If your opponent expects you to pick stone, they will choose paper to outwit you. Therefore, by going with scissors, you will win, because scissors beat paper.
The Mail picked it up and added that the scissors strategy is so successful that it secured auction house Christie's a £10million deal in 2005. .( when a loon Jap told Christies to compete with Sotheby’s at the school yards game and the scissors strategy was successful)
For some of us the news that scissors is the best choice was established long ago when we biffed the Hun under our greatest Leader.

Hi Mr N.

Good picture. I never played the game much as a child. However I do play a mean game of spoof.

OT Do you know what figures Cicero is hinting at on his latest post?
