Rock, Paper, Scissors

    Another forum game:

    Here's how it works:

    The Rules:
    1 - No posting something that can't be beaten (God is the traditional example of an unbeatable object; however, Parallel Universes is a much better example, since it could be argued that atheism or Buddhism beats God...)

    2 - The post must beat the thing above it in a healthy and undeniable way (e.g. lawn mower beats plant) It doesn't even have to be related, as long as it could realistically beat it. (e.g. falling tree beats deer)

    3 - If there is, for some reason, something that is hard to beat, either A: Make something that isn't very obvious and explain it [e.g, Hawking radiation beats black hole (by causing the black hole to evaporate)]
    or B: look at the post above and take it from there.

    Example of game:
    Paper
    Paper Shredder
    Black out
    Generator
    Man sticking fork in generator
    Sword
    etc., etc., etc....


    I'll start:

    Pen

    No ethyne

    (oxyacetylene torch. Gas torch that burns ethyne (acetylene) in pure oxygen, producing a high-temperature flame (3000°C/5400°F). It is widely used in welding ...)

    Sorry, have to stop and take issue. You aren't "beating" my torch with something else, but claiming I don't have the fuel it takes to operate. What's to stop everyone from saying there's some similar lack or flaw in the previous persons thing. A. says "hacksaw", B can say "It has no blade." ?????

    ????? Could you elaborate please?

    Edit - googling shows this is a gaming term but it does not always equate to a critical attack

    it is ok to do that but i forgot to say" a oxyacetylene torch with no ethyne". The general idea is the the next thing should pwn the previous.

    You can have a look at another forum with this forum game for ideas:

    Since we have gotten off track a bit i'll continue on my post..
