This final note today: For those of you into settling bets the old fashioned way, Japanese scientists have developed a robot so fast it can "win" rock-paper-scissors against a mere human every single time.
But here's the catch: The way it wins...is by cheating. It can react so quickly -- in just 0.001 second -- to what your hand is doing, that it knows what to throw out to beat you.
So, we're sticking with what we know. Paper always wins. Also, cheaters never win.
