You too can be a ninja!
posted by neilkod (28 comments total)

 
what's with the christmas tree in the background? I thought ninjas contemplated Shinto and buddist philosophy in meditation sessions, rather then engaging in secularized christian orgies of consumerism.

Well, that, and flipping out and killing people

i wonder if i can get on a plane wearing that.

You're right delmoi, I've never seen a Ninja with Isotoner gloves. This link is cool; and by cool, I mean totally sweet.

Damn you, machaus, beat me to it!

BEAT ME TO IT TOO, and I'm the one who ALWAYS makes that joke.

That link rules so much I could crap my pants. HA!

Besides, now that I am a SNOW NINJA I can kick your ass, since all Ninjas ever do is flip out and kill people.

Amazing how good that looks, too.

$10 says no girl will post to this thread.

I actually did study Ninjutsu when I was in high school, and I really am a Ninja (a horibly out of shape Ninja, and it isn't really like the movies anyway, but...). My Sensei was hugely Christian, so there you go.

By the way, my training pre-dates what we commonly think of as the web, and I've long since lost touch, but this seems to be my formers teachers web site with information etc.

I said "$10 says". I didn't say who I'd pay.



Besides neither of you say "girl" in the gender field of your profiles, and besides, on the internet you never know.



You probably don't even know what a ninja IS

Ninjas are mammals who fight ALL the time. The purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people.

(hey, what MAN would want "pxe2000" as their screen name? any takers?)

I dunno. Miguel?

Nah.

"...because 'clerks is ninja in itself."

i love the fact that the word "ninja" can be used as an adjective. I wonder the extent of its applications because I would much rather use the word "ninja" than "hella."

t-shirts all over the world are being abused right now as we all try this. That's a sweet thing to think about. Tip: don't use red. It makes you look more like a geisha than a ninja.

hmm...i thought saying that clerks was "ninja" was acknowledging that most of those who crap their pants over how sweet ninjas are would also be likely to love clerks (or more likely to love clerks than, say, safe). just a thought.

Could I just say that you are all poseurs and that I have been using the word sweet in many threads and in daily conversation for quite a while now??



You're not funny. None of you.

Isn't that the guy from Blues Clues?

My thoughts exactly, iconomy!

"$10 says no girl will post to this thread."

i stumbled on this gem a while ago, but still couldn't do it... it's funny, because one of the girls who reads my page thought it was a cool link, and was the one who actually sat me down to show me how it was done.. i felt like the biggest non-ninja ever...

obligatory self-mefi-link, just because i rule..

Prior art (as in prior to your membership.) Poseur.

jonmc: and i have ninja nourishment. Sweet.

eyeballkid is right. And by right I mean totally sweet. Besides, he's a code ninja. Jonmc said so.

No, iconomy, this is the guy from Blue's Clues. I've been meaning to put this up as a FPP for a while now, but I was waiting for "Joe" to take over on the show. Yes, I have a four-year-old son.

As for ninja beliefs, delmoi, they're only allowed to meditate under icy-cold waterfalls.
