Big Bang Theory

I LOVE Sheldon on CBS's The Big Bang Theory.

He is so pompous yet is hysterical beyond measure.

In this week's episode, he was telling his friends that simple Rock Paper Scissors is too simplistic especially if you are playing against someone you know well. His more scientific version of the game was:

Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock (RPSLS)

Here is how it works. I think you can only be a fricken physicist to understand this.

Scissors cut paper.
Paper covers rock.

Rock crushes lizard.

Lizard poisons Spock.

Spock smashes scissors.

Scissors decapitates lizard.

Lizard eats paper.

Paper disproves Spock.

Spock vaporizes rock.

And as always rock crushes scissors.

Here is a diagram to better explain it (HA HA HA!)

The best part is, Sheldon rattles this off at light speed using the hand gestures and while Leonard looks baffled Koothrappali says to him, "Okay, I got it."

Here is a website where you can play RPSLS. I have to say, the pictures are classic.

In case you missed this episode or want to see this part again, here ya go.

Watch CBS Videos Online

And here's a classic photo just because.
