Whiskey has started with R 6 times, S 1 time, and P 1 time. That would suggest P is safest. BUT Whiskey may be expecting that I would look at his tendencies and choose P and go S. NOW that suggests I should go R with my first throw, to avoid the surprise S. BUT I haven't thrown S first this entire match. So maybe Whiskey has decided that P would be safe. BUT Whiskey's throws imply he knows that prior to this match I threw S first 50% of the time, so he might not feel safe throwing paper and instead stick with R in case I revert back to my usual S. BUT now I know he has thought through these ideas and so I revert back to P. NOW we have completed a loop. Where along the loop (either the first, second, or nth time through) will Whiskey stop and decide what to throw? More importantly, where does he think I will stop in the iterative loop, and what will his throw be based on that?

So many choices. One answer. I'm going to mull it over for a bit and submit soon.

After deciding my throw, I checked Random.org. It confirms my throw is indeed random.

My final throw was in honor of the second greatest song from the first round of the inaugural 'AO Battle of the Bands'

Or was it.

Or do I even remember that event correctly.

Or do I even remember my throw.
