It's 1-2-3-shoot. What planet are you other people from? The extra beat (3) gives you the edge of being able to see any slight tics that could suggest, say a "paper" coming at you (ie, the hand starts to tilt ever so gently).
If anyone raped or molested my wife or child i'd off them myself so I guess it doesn't matter. If you don't feel those type of emotions in that situation then that is you and in my opinion makes you a twisted person from a twisted state (UTAH) if that is where your from!
Even when I lived in St. Louis (Ballwin, to be ***cise), I threw on the 4th beat. Listen York, if we ever run into each other, you can throw on the third beat, then I'll throw on the 4th. We'll play for $20 a throw.
why dont you make a rock paper scissors beat poll?
the wiki pages mentions both ways "On the third count, or on a further beat after the third count, the players change their hands into one of three gestures, which they then "throw" by extending it towards their opponent."
