NVM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jIYch5FIXE But there's also a Fridge Brilliance in this. In ancient Chinese alchemy, there are five elements, and Wood is one of them. Paper is made from trees; trees are wood; in Chinese Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors wood beats earth; rocks are considered earth; therefore, paper beats rock.

"The use of rock-paper-scissors to resolve disputes or apportion chores (rather than as a game) is mostly a Japanese Media Trope"

...what? Is the person who wrote this just insane or have they never watched anything but Anime? Using Rock-paper-scissors to solve a disagreement has been an american tradition for decades at the least.
