Claims of impersonation is an offense worthy of a ban.




Does that rule apply to impersonating forum members only?

I'm actually Elvis Presley . As you can see, I'm not dead. I'm currently posting from the Area 51 where I'm being held prisoner. I'm also Jack the Ripper . How is that possible? Simple. I'm immortal, because both those names are actually covers for my true identity: I'm really the alchemist known as the Count of Saint-Germain . How was I able to remain hidden for all those centuries? Well, I must confess I was known as Hatori Hanzo back in my ninja years. Oh, by the way, in case you wonder why the army is keeping me in the Area 51, the reason is I'm actually an alien from outer space .

Ninja were first and foremost assassins. They were not warriors in an open battlefield, but killers from the dark. Those who would poison, stab in the back, destroy reputations and perform clandestine murders. The only real code was that of secrecy and popular suspension of disbelief in their existance. Many instructors try to paint them with a warriors brush (ninja of old) when the last thing they wanted to do was face a warrior in open combat.


1.) Ninja as intellectuals.
Being an intellectual doesn't mean planning ahead. Def:a person who places a high value on or pursues things of interest to the intellect or the more complex forms and fields of knowledge, as aesthetic or philosophical matters, esp. on an abstract and general level.

2.) Strength is useless without weakness.
Ugliness is not weakness, it is perception, cold is not weakness, it is absence of heat. Weakness lives where willpower fears to tread.

3.) The soul of a warrior.
Not to say that I don't agree with you, but ninjas were assassins, not warriors. Yes the warrior spirit could certainly be more widespread and it would definitely help people in their everyday lives.

4.) The "Calm."
Once again, you are absolutely right. Ninja may not always exemplify this though. They were as tigers patiently crouching. Not calm but patient and highly aware.

I think you are confusing ninja spirit with the martial spirit that any modern martial art tries to instill in us daily.
The ancient ninja is a different matter altogether.

I don't get the whole " omg ninjas are the best" thing everyone has.

Essentially what hes saying is that Sam Fisher is a ninja.
He just doesn't wear silly hoods and have phosphate bombs in his pocket.

Basically, ninjas weren't like Sam Fisher.

All this crap about ninjas being wanna-be Fisher or Solid Snake is just hookus-pookus based on Hollywood.

A real ninja were more or less like Agent 47 from the games "Hitman". Disguise, careful planning, infiltration and information was the primary thing they used. Guess what most ninjas were. Yup, females.

All that crap about ninjas running from roof to roof, jumping through the night, infiltrating a building and then take out the enemy leader is just hollywood. The real scenario was more or less, ninjas would disguise themselves as the enemy, infiltrate, stay there for a time, study and plan the enemy leader's habits, and then strike at him when he's at his weakest. Does it take time? Yup, some ninjas spent months, even years.

Now, why do you think most ninjas were female?

Because ninja sex is the best sex! But also, weren't ninjas used primarily as spies? Because I'm sure that if everytime you sent out a ninja it was to kill someone, people would catch on.

This is ancient Japan your talking about here, so they might not always send women out for that purpose, regardless of the gender or the target.

Mindless teenagers. As soon as I say female, you automatically assume sex. Get educated or something.

Females have their ways with men. It's a lot easier to get into enemy's keeps being female than a male.

Women can get guys to talk pretty easily to be honest. Trust me, I've said a lot of things when I should've shut up.
