    Rock, paper, scissors.

    How do you qualify for this? I think I'm going to go into training if they up the stakes.

    Man wins 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' contest

    It all came down to this: Jason Wood threw a "rock," crushing Erin Smith's "scissors" and earning him a trip to Las Vegas.

    Wood, a 34-year-old server at an oyster bar, emerged from a field of 29 competitors to win the southwest Florida regional finals of the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" tournament Thursday night at a local country music nightclub, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported in Friday's editions.
    Now he's off to Vegas to compete in the national tournament and a chance to win $50,000.

    In case you missed it, "Rock, Paper, Scissors" - that same hand-to-hand game used to settle childhood disputes - is an organized sport now. The rules are the same: Rock smashes scissors. Paper smothers rock. Scissors cut paper.

    In the finals, Wood took the first round, Smith the second. Wood went with the "rock" and took the rubber match.

    "I'm on top of the world!" he said.

    More than 300 people from across the country will compete in the April 9 tournament at the Luxor Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

    I'd rather thumb wrestle.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
