More Ninja Stuff

I was watching Mythbusters last night and I realized two things: that show looks like a lot of fun and work to make and that it has been a long time since I posted anything about ninjas. This post is not about ninjas except how they relate to Mythbusters. The Mythbusters did a whole show on three ninja myths: catching an arrow in flight, stopping a sword over your head with your hands and running across water. I won't reveal the results but I will say that the Ask-A-Ninja ninja showed up at the end and you can see the bonus footage here.

I enjoy any mysth which involves a dead pig, or hydrogen, or both. Those have been the best.

Well Rounded Ninja/Pony Land is still there. There was some slight trouble when Blogger decided to let some spammers have the old site. But the link works fine now.

Or the PS3 Ninja Gaiden game. I have the demo and it's ninja-tastic (which is almost as good as Shinobi for PS2, which is ninja-rific).

Mythbusters? AG doesn't know that show. Probably because she is busy...

AG should be worried that they will bust some of the myths that make her life palatable. Ignorance is bliss right?

George Bush doesn't care about ninjas.

Chuckles said...

I don't think GWB would care if the ninjas jumped into one of his coke and hookers parties and declared that they were there to carve his brain from his skull.

Are you guys serious? If there's one thing every living current or former President thinks about, it's ninjas.

Why do you think we invaded Iraq?
Secret ninja training ground.

Why do you think we cut taxes for large corporations?
Many of them are fronts for developing anti-ninja technology.

Why do you think Guantanamo Bay is still open?
We can't let the ninjas out ... it'd be like Ghostbusters ... well, minus the giant marshmallow ninja.

He may not like them but he certainly cares about them. He cares enough to want them DEAD.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

He'd care if he call self them for young lives in exchange for more oil power.
