How to Win at Rock, Paper, Scissors

I went back and forth when deciding whether or not to post this article, you see – I play to win.  I wanted to keep all the secrets to myself!  ~Erin

In the game Rock, Paper, Scissors, two opponents randomly toss out hand gestures, and each one wins, loses or draws with equal probability. It’s supposed to be a game of pure luck, not skill — and indeed, if humans were able to be perfectly random, no one could gain an upper hand over anyone else.

There’s one problem with that reasoning: Humans are terrible at being random.

It’s Finally Time – R Bar Grand Opening TODAY!

It was well over two years ago when the devastating explosion in downtown Bozeman shocked us all.  If you had spent any time in downtown before that tragic day, you knew and loved the Rockin R Bar.   I spent many of my biggest college (and after) nights out in this bar – turning 21, celebrating big Bobcat/Griz wins, Homecoming Parades, Music on Main, Karaoke – everyone has their own R Bar favorite’s list. These memories only got stronger on that fateful day we all saw it in pieces and burning to the ground.  The doors of the R Bar have been closed for 873 days – but the countdown ends and the R Bar opens its doors again!!!

What Do You Do For The Fourth Of July?

Fourth Of July is one of those holidays that has just not been the same since I left home.  I used to spend the 4th with my cousins at the farm – which is on the lake.  I have such fond memories of my cousin shooting bottle rockets at chickens – running after those parachute fireworks and getting them, even if they were in the lake – scaring animals – swimming and playing in the water… I miss these times A LOT.
