I've come to the conclusion that there are very few conflicts in life that can't be fairly settled by a throw of rock-paper-scissors.
This is my secret parenting tool as of late. Who gets to sit next to the baby? Rock Paper Scissors. Who gets the last peice of candy? Rock Paper Scissors. Who gets to go first? Rock Paper Scissors.
This genius decision-making tool can also be used to select who has to do a chore or take a shower first or whatever other undesirable "thing" that needs to be done.
I'm convinced that we could probably settle things with Osama if "W" would just shoot some Rock Paper Scissors with him.
