Only three players have ever scored more overtime playoff goals than Kane.

Those of you who have played high-stakes rock-paper-scissors games in back-room casinos have probably figured this out: even though the best long-term strategy in RPS is to play at random, people don't actually do that. In a large-scale experiment done by a group of Chinese researchers, they found that humans play randomly about a third of the time, but when they win or lose a round, their actions are biased: people who win are more likely to repeat their previous action, while people who lose are more likely to shift to the action which would have beaten the move they just made. (So if they lost with rock, they will play paper next)

Of course, there are other ways to win at rock-paper-scissors, like this robot (http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-24803751) which is simply very fast at recognizing human hand motions and can respond faster than you can. But this approach is more broadly useful, since it can apply to many situations where people have to make guesses semi-blindly and repeatedly. 

No word yet on how this applies to RPS-101 (http://www.umop.com/rps101/rps101chart.html).

The first large-scale measurements of the way humans play Rock-Paper-Scissors reveal a hidden pattern of play that opponents can exploit to gain a vital edge.

As requested from your comments, here's a post about organisms that are able to live in extreme conditions.

The image shown is a water bear. These micro organisms can survive without food or water for 120 years, can withstand pressure that is six times what is found in oceans, and survive temperatures above absolute zero and above boiling point.

Apparently some were taken into space and survived that. Tough creatures.

I don't know who made this, and I've seen it before.  But it's definitely worth another view.

Global Warming?
The graph below was created by Cuffy and Clow in 1997, and is based on Greenland ice core records.  Global temperatures have been significantly warmer than they are today over the past 10,000 years.

If you draw a line straight down from the beginning of the little ice age (the blue)  to the scale on the bottom, it is to the left of the first mark (1K BP). According to this chart, it started 1300 yrs ago, and ended about 1000 years ago...which historically is incorrect. I would not put too much faith in this chart.

I have been attending this facility to see my regular family doctor for a few years now and I am very pleased. They almost always call me from the waiting room within 2 minutes of my appointment time. My Dr (Osten) is also very prompt. I never feel rushed like cattle though and it is always a pleasant experience. I highly recommend this facility and Dr Osten.

Adequate food at best. Priced like a gourmet burger place but tastes exactly like Wendy's. Most likely would only come again for dessert.
