    Seriously though, from the sidebar of the BBC article, carefully hidden...in plain sight.

    Five nearly-true ninja myths

    Ninjutsu is a martial art: In fact, fighting was a last resort - ninjas were skilled in espionage and defeating foes using intelligence, while swinging a sword was deemed a lower art

    Ninjas could disappear: They couldn't vanish as they do in the movies, but being skilled with explosives, they could make smoke bombs to momentarily misdirect the gaze, then flit away

    They wore black: Ninja clothing was made to be light and hard to see in the dark - but jet-black would cause the form to stand out in moonlight, so a dark navy blue dye was usually used

    Ninjas could fly: They moved quietly and swiftly, thanks to breathing techniques which increased oxygen intake, but kept their feet on the ground

    And walk on water: CIA intelligence says they used "water shoes" - circular wooden boards or buckets - and a bamboo paddle for propulsion, but doubt remains over their effectiveness

    I actually listened to this story on the radio, they interviewed him it was kind of interesting, not quite as interesting though as the Guy that is exposing Afghanistan to Boxing though that they had on right before it.

    Hey. If the "Three Letter Agency" says it, then it must be true. Right?
