a lot of wisdom there cord.

I noticed the desire to feel special in a lot of people, in my uncle and his interest of "chi gung" but his unwillingness to break a sweat.

in a 47 year old hot dog chef who looks down upon others because they are "too rational, too idealistic, too much of a guardian etc."

or in the eccentric wrestler, the extreme conspiracy theorist. The list is endless

It seems nobody wants to be average.

Being a teenager, I think the whole desire to be a NINJA is fueled by the ego, or maybe it is because you need to kill a lot of free time.

in that way were all average, evern by trying to rise above the "masses". maybe that steems from w wrong view of what average is.

ninja this, ninja that. i just came back from a national competetion with 2 gold meadls, and im still depressed about every day crap. let the boy live his dream while he can. while he's busy running up trees his school friends are busy unhooking bra's. where's more enlightenment going to be found?

yours in life

SoL, usually you don't say very powerful words, but this quote, is by far, the best thing I've read on this website the whole duration I've been here. Quote of the Year buddy.

sorry - a teenager in the western world circa 2007 has no reason to be thinking about being a ninja. you should be thinking about school stuff and girls, etc.

there are plenty of other role models who are better for a kid than ninjas - you should try to identify some, and follow them.

and, if you really want to pretend to be a killer - join the military and they will train you and give you a chance, and you can do some good in the process, maybe.

Sveninja,
You have a lot of ideas about what a ninja is and how to act/be like one. How did you come to these ideas and conclusions? What were your sources?
