    Floats on water.

    Erodes Rock.

    Don't ask me How Swishing through air does anything though.

    what is this MADNESS!! this is a step backwards for the competitive RPS community!

    as you should be able to see in superuser #Az's original post, RPS is a stream lined version of these superfluous, out-dated styles and techniques.

    Oh..I deleted my post because I thought it was a bad one. Vineon, water would only beat paper if some other factor affected the paper afterward or it was stuck in a particularly vicious strain of water; however, water is always absorbed by paper!! Wind erodes rock over time. Scissors..cut air?

    lets start doing rpsi again. i don't even need to think for it anymore, i've created the ultimate rpsi move.

    anyone who's seen it, knows it.

    edit: yep, space sucks.
