What can I make that is a first class compound lever? Answered

I have a science project on levers. I want to make a first class compound lever, but don't have any ideas.


hmmmm. How would I do that? it seems interestingg


Because Scissors beats paper! (and paper beats Rock, and Rock beats Scissors, obviously...)

Here are the rules


It's this really cool game called Rock-Paper-Scissors, and you can read more about it here:


I don't know anything about Spock-Phasor-Lizard. Unless that happens to be the same game, but just with different names for the things and stuff.


Hey, thanks for the link. Now I understand what Verence is saying about Lizard and Spock.

At first I thought I was misheard, because Spock rhymes with Rock, and Lizard rhymes with Scissors. Of course it doesn't make sense for me to have been misheard, because we're communicating with written text, not audible speech...

Anyway, I thank you for enlightening me about Lizard and Spock.

Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock is an extension of Rock-Paper-Scissors.

See the rickhariss' link below somewhere in the middle, chapter Variants

I guess I didn't read the company memo about Lizard and Spock, but erm, uh, now I get it.

Rock beats {Scissors and Lizard}
Scissors beats {Paper and Lizard}
Paper beats {Rock and Spock}
Spock beats {Scissors and Rock}
Lizard beats {Spock and Paper}
