I don’t know why I’m making this, but here are 2 crossword clues off the top of my head. (And no, no crosswords for you!)

  1. To play rock, paper, scissors agressively? (5, 5)
  2. Apolitical reactionist? (7)

Here is my guess for the first one:

To play rock, paper, scissors aggressively-

THROW HANDS- Throw hands is slang for getting into a fistfight. 'Throw' is also the action of displaying your sign in Rock, Paper, Scissors.


Edit: A guess for the second one:

Apolitical reactionist-

Is it REAGENT?- A+Regent (Political) and reagents are the things that cause a chemical reaction. Not sure about this one.

  • $\begingroup$ @parz I have made a guess for the second one. Please take a look. $\endgroup$ Mar 28, 2023 at 19:01
  • $\begingroup$ The second one is incorrect. Remember, these are crossword clues, not cryptics - I have zero business writing cryptics. $\endgroup$

I think this is SHAKE HANDS, a sort of play on words suggesting a particularly aggressive game of rock, paper, scissors.

I think this is NEUTRON which sounds apolitical ("neutral") but also sustains the chain reaction in a nuclear reactor ("reactionist").
