STU SAYS

The Leader (Tasman) - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

I wouldn’t say I’m es­pe­cially de­ci­sive or maybe I am. I’ve yet to crys­tallise my thoughts on this.

Luck­ily there are a cou­ple of handy de­ci­sion-mak­ing tools avail­able. There’s the time hon­oured eeny-meeny-miny-mo for solo de­ci­sion mak­ing.

If you have a coin handy you can flip it, but if you’re lack­ing in de­ci­sive­ness and dex­ter­ity you’re a bit stuffed on this one.

If you’ve got a bat­ting part­ner though you can peel out pa­per, scis­sors, rock (PSR).

I have my reser­va­tions about this. For in­stance we tried a three­way PSR the other day and quite frankly it was a bit of a de­ba­cle.

And then there’s the no­tion that a rock can in fact crush a pair of scis­sors, re­al­is­ti­cally we’re talk­ing hu­mungous rock, tiny scis­sors.

Is a rock re­ally in­ca­pac­i­tated if you wrap it in pa­per?

OK, so scis­sors can cut pa­per up so that’s pretty sound.

Still I’m con­stantly re­minded not to try and rein­vent the wheel so there’s prob­a­bly no need to make this more de­ci­sive.

And hand grenade, sa­mu­rai sword, air­borne pathogen doesn’t have the same ring to it.
