Starting in 2002, the World Rock Paper Scissors Society standardized a set of rules for international play  and has overseen annual International World Championships. These open, competitive championships have been widely attended by players from around the world and have attracted widespread international media attention.      WRPS events are noted for their large cash prizes, elaborate staging, and colorful competitors.  In 2004, the championships were broadcast on the . television network Fox Sports Net , with the winner being Lee Rammage, who went on to compete in at least one subsequent championship.   The 2007 tournament was won by Andrea Farina.  The last tournament hosted by the World Rock Paper Scissors Society was in Toronto, Canada, on November 14, 2009. 
The Wiss 10” Shop Shears are big, fat scissors for big, fat tasks, preferably done by people with big, er, well-shaped hands. The handles are roomy and the blades are longer compared to many other models. It isn’t quite as effortless to cut paper, cardboard, or tagboard with the Wiss Shop Shears as it is with the Kai scissors—and it’s hard to get slits in wrapping paper started, much less finished. However, if your daily tasks run more to the plastic-clamshell-and-cable-ties end of recreational cutting, these scissors will work for you.
