    Default Ninjas...need I say more?

    Me and a buddy of mine were actually arguing about how amazing ninjas were really in the old days (or right now, since there still exists masters of ninjitsu), because in games they all seem so extreme.

    My friend said it was all hype, like they were probably pretty freaking stealthy and speedy and such, but it was overexagerated. I on the other hand, decided to dream big. I told em that if ther're still acknowledged years and years after their 'prime' (when they were a full fledged feared organisation), then they have to be pretty special. Ninjas would be like the ultimate warrior. They were the assassins in the feudal age in Japan, trained for utmost stealth.

    It was just a stupid boredom debate, but today, i got hit by a piece of info that made me say : gold star for me!

    My teachers started by telling us that their shoes were practicly nothing, just like big sox, to prevent cuts. The point of which being so it would be like they were barefoot, because they had devised a special technique. Ninjas are half-arse known for being able to run (not like fog, RUN) for hours and hours on end, days even, with ease. But how? Turns out they run in a way that activates certain pressure points underneath your foot (because practicly all your nerves end on the bottom of your foot). These pressure points would send a message to the rest of the body, keeping it in perfect harmony, no increase in heartbeat or breathing!

    I know a bit more about ninjas, just out of randomness, but i'll leave you with this enlightening message : there is a ninja behind you right now, bwahahahaha!

    Ninjas are awesome.

    100 Pirates vs. 100 Ninjas, anyone?

    Pirates > Ninjas


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Why do I get the feeling this is going to somehow transition into One Piece vs. Naruto?

    Ninja's take the cake.

    Pirates FTL

    Silly MGS, Luffy wouldn't stand a chance against Naruto with his orange sharingan.

    ....

    If your going to make an argument, do your research.

    Ninjas are half-arse known for being able to run (not like fog, RUN) for hours and hours on end, days even, with ease. But how
    Its called 'pacing' and adrenaline. This thing about pressure points enabling you to run forever is over exaggerated bullcrap.

    BTW the quote makes almost no sense. And its Socks, not 'sox'.

    EDIT: Screw you all, I was suppost to be first. NINJAS>PIRATES

    Oh. Congrats. Ninjas not only still exist(much like bandito's and Greek hoplites), but they are able to defy the Kreb's Cycle, lactic acid build-up in the legs, and the inherent limitations of aerobic metabolism(and, in effect, anaerobic metabolism). Amazing.

    I do love how pirates are still around sailing all over from the seven seas to the internets!!!
