I think the analogy with military units might not be the most accurate in regards to real Ninjas (the kind that are dead and gone for hundreds of years,i refuse to call anyone who lived in the last two centuries one.).
The most "reliable" accounts we have of their activities are more in the line of intelligence gathering and espionage, with the rest being the product of ignorance trying to fill voids and deliberate disinformation on their part?
Id be more willing to compare them to the CIA, both the actual work the agency does and the paradoid-conspiracies myths people buy into.
Ninjas as staple of fiction,i am also cool with, in so far as im getting good entertainment out of them...sure,why not. All i demand of my entertainment is that is it competently entertaining. Orcs and elves arent real but it didnt stop me from liking the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
Theres nothing wrong with enjoying escapist entertainment and Fiction,whatever itīs form, as long as it doesnt get in the fucking way of you understanding what *reality* is and you functioning in it.
Some people like Mountainous there, start blurring the two in an attempt to deny how shitty they lifes are perceive to be,and thus embarrass themselves royally, thinkings that somehow that ammounts to any form of acomplishment ,or that he is in fact realistic specimen of a *fictional archetype.*
Nerd 1:"Nothing beats Shaolin Kung Fu"
Nerd 2:"I do shorinji kermpo, I could beat you if it wasn't strictly non contact"
Nerd 1:"Actually, shorinji is the japanese word for shaolin, it means..."
Nerds together:"Small Forest"
Nerd 3:"I do Taijutsu, I have sword skills"
Nerd 1:"Nyaaaa! Three section staff!"
Nerd 2:"Nyaaaa! Zen and inner peace!" (What the **** is up with nerds and "I'M ZEN")
Nerd 3:"Nyaaaa! Kubotan!"
...and so on, while I try to eat my screwdriver.
Is he in his mid 30s? How the hell does he make enough money as a cook to pay for **** like this and board all the time?
In his spare time, he must shamelessly pleasure Japanese businessmen for pocket change. No other explanation...
homeboy cooks at a restaurant that is owned by the ski area
I will kick his ass next time I visit Mt. Hood
I will try to film it
what do I do if he refuses to spar with me?
Throw polystyrene ninjastars at him until he agrees to fight you over the caldera, or just in the snow. A snow battle would be badass. Except bjj would really be a pain in the ass in that case, wet ass and all.
Despite how much I really hate MOUNTAINIOUS, he does provide some great entertainment. Everytime I think he's gotten as pathetic as humanly possible he goes and does stuff like this.
You just can't help but watch. It's like watching a car crash while being driven by Ninjas.
Can someone Gong Sau this fat **** already? He claims Bullshido and his other critics are fakers, wannabes who don't know the "martial essence" like he does. If you try to argue with him he'll delete+block you and send you PMs full of racial abuse.
I can't think of anyone i've met online who deserves an ass beating more than this douche.
I pretty sure no one here wants anything to do with his essence.
Besides, inviting people like this to a sparring session is like trying to nail custard to a wall, it just wouldn't happen.
