From my new favorite ultra-geeky show "The Big Bang Theory" comes this awesome variant of the classic rock-paper-scissors game.
Here's how it goes:
Too fast? Read the rules below the fold :-)
"Scissors cut paper; paper covers rock; rock crushes lizard; lizard poisons Spock; Spock smashes scissors; scissors decapitate lizard; lizard eats paper; paper disproves Spock; Spock vaporizes rock; and as it always has, rock crushes scissors."
Incidentally, I'm sure fellow geeks will have burst out laughing at one of the best lines in this clip :
"I'm not going to watch the Clone Wars series until I've seen the Clone Wars movie. I prefer to let George Lucas disappoint me in the order he intended."
Nearly every scene/line of that show is wonderfully quotable, but I'll just leave you with a semi-random one (I'm in a breakfast mood).
