Your days of never getting shotgun are over, thanks to this new video from Numberphile that breaks down the best strategies for winning at Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Host Hannah Fry explains below, but the essential tips are: if you lose, the person who just won will almost certainly play the same move in the next game, so adjust your move accordingly (if they chose rock last time and you chose scissors, make sure you do paper next! Crush that rock!). And if you win, outwit your opponent by not playing the same move again ... but by playing the move that he or she just lost with. Uh, wha? Watch the video and it'll all make sense, we promise.
