Find Mediators Near You:

When All Else Fails, There’s Rock, Paper, Scissors

All right, this falls into the category of “who knew?” And it seems the perfect post for a summer Friday.

There is a World Rock Paper Scissors Society. Their tagline is, “Serving the needs of decision makers since 1918.” They even have a world championship, slated for October…you can buy tickets to the event. Really, who knew? Or am I the last to know of the latest hot new sporting event?

Now I know where to turn next time a megabucks mediation gets stuck on the last $5,000.

Found via TechCrunch. Thanks…I think.
