On the World RPS thing: this is the sort of thing it’s good to have a sense of humor about.

Hey MGK,

Did I mention I’m not only Brad, “occasional MGK commentor” Fox, but also Brad “Head Referee of The World Rock Paper Scissors Society, Fox”?

I actually liked your write up of the champs, although I’d argue that every years “flava” is a little different, and this year was way more positive, less asshole-ish, and less crassly corporate than, say, 2004…

As for the Worlds – while all kinds of events questionably use “World”, I think an open competition where over 50% of participants are from outside the host country and at lleast one representative from every continent on Earth (well there’s some argument about Antarctica – but “Dr. Zastro” has been at every championships since 2005 and claims to work at Mcmurdo station… then again, he claims a lot of things) we do okay.

We’re certainly more representative than, say, the “World Championships” of Hockey or Baseball.
