german: scissor: schere paper: papier rock: stein (well: brunnen) special german rule! ^__^ "brunnen" wins against "schere" and "stein" and loses against "papier". You do the sign with forming a circle with your thump and pointing finger, so that it resembles a hole.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

it's called SUIT (the same way you read "SEW IT")

Scissors : Gunting

Paper : Kertas

Rock : Batu

In Javanese way (one of the tribe in Indonesia), there also elephant-ant-man.

you see, the thumb represents elephant,

forefinger represents man,

and the little finger represents ant.

-elephant stronger than man,

-man stronger than ants,

-and ant stronger than elephant.
