25 Variations of Rock Paper Scissors

Farker turned me on to this gorgeous model of 25 quirky variations on rock paper scissors, complete with appropriate hand gesture, created by David C. Lovelace. Math whizzes, that means 600 possible combinations. Yesterday they released an interactive version of RPS 25, so you can waste more time at work finding out what beats what. So, for example, man beats alien (because man disproves alien); snake beats air (because snakes breathe air); water beats devil (because water blesses the devil), cockroach beats nuke (no explanation needed). Pretty fucking cool.
