How to Win Rock-Paper-Scissors

  1. LOVE IT. SPOCK it is. I also like bomb, which looks like rock at first and then explodes. Booyah.

  2. ha… actually, this is still a game of chance, it’s just making use of conditional probability ~ you could apply Bayes theorem to help improve your game! (yeah, I know that was super nerdy.. sorry! the math geek in me could not resist)
