NINJAS

Published by at 12:04 pm under I'm not making this up,News

BBC: “The thieves were assaulting a German medical exchange student in Sydney, but the alleyway where they struck was next to a school for ninja warriors.”  Guys, when you make sure there are no witnesses or security cameras nearby, you might want to take note of the ninja school next time.

    One of my friends and I are Jedi Ninjas … you don’t wanna mess with us!

    But yeah. Great article, and I’m glad the guy wasn’t too beat up, hope they catch the third attacker.

    One of the things on my ‘list of things to do before I die’ is ‘stop a crime’. As such I have a black belt in Karate and I do Judo. This news story has given me the inspiration I need to become Kick As- I mean, do good…

    It’s only a matter of time…

    Also, the crime has to be against someone else to count, I want to help others, not myself.

    Hah, see, Australia is full of awesome. Like me. 😀

    Tom: Yeah, I want to stop a crime too. I have no training though, so it’ll be a while before I’m much use in combat. Still, I have a Senior First Aid certificate, so that’ll help.

    There was recently a huge gang war in Sydney. Carl Williams, who was behind much of it, was jailed for life and recently got murdered in prison (bashed up the head with an iron bar). So they reckon another gang war might start soon, because everyone wants to be as powerful as he was. Not to say that crime doesn’t happen where I live, but over East, where the cities are bigger, there is more crime. Most of it is caused by physical fighting or stabbing, Australia has very few guns compared to the USA, civilians aren’t allowed to own guns unless they are farmers or roo/emu hunters.

    I have not stopped a crime in progress, but I did help the FBI investigate a child pornography case involving a one-time Superhero Nation reader. (What part of “Superhero Nation: how to write superhero novels and comic books” makes it sound like you’d find porn here?) I didn’t do much, though. Maybe I helped them establish probable cause for a warrant.

    Coincidentally, when I was in the District of Columbia, I worked ~4 blocks from the FBI Headquarters.

    Eww, that’s just sick. What a pervert. But congrats on helping out!

    You ask me, the legal age should be eighteen (it’s sixteen in most states, and seventeen in South Australia and Tasmania), not that it would stop some of the people I know at school. Hell, the year eights (age 13) are doing it. Not to mention the alcohol and drugs. People just can not wait. I hear my classmates talking about drinking, and I’m just “HELLO! The drinking age is EIGHTEEN, people!” Guh. Morons, the lot of ’em.

    Drinking age in the U.S. is 21. The consensus among the non-Mormons I know is that this is onerously high. Technically, the states are free to lower the age on their own, but then Washington cuts off the highway funds. I think Wyoming held out for a few years before caving.

    Come to Australia, then. Haha, everyone boasts that Aussie beer is the best in the world. I wouldn’t know though, I don’t drink, because I’m underage, and I actually don’t want to drink. I’m not Mormon or anything, I’m a Catholic at a Catholic school. Though in terms of religious beliefs, I’m more agnostic, not a Bible thumper. My RE teacher from last year has ten kids. No thanks. Haha

    I hate Phys Ed and I quit it in year ten (age 15), but if one thing could get me back into it, it would be ninjutsu classes, or really any martial art.. 😀

    I found this random website that talks about how epic ninjas are, but it’s quite obviously a troll because it’s badly spelt and really messed up.

    Oh, and another thing, if you go to Ninja, it’s an awesome themed search engine built around Google. I never use Google anymore, except for image search, since Ninja doesn’t currently have that. Or MAYBE Ninja won’t show us regular folks any pretty pictures because they want to keep their faces secret?

    And I noticed this after someone on MLIA pointed it out, if you look at Google’s language options, it offers Klingon, Bork Bork Bork, and Elmer Fudd as languages.

    I find it a bit silly that an 18 year old is old enough to legally have intercourse, get married, purchase a rifle, join the Army, drive, ride a motorcycle without a helmet*, smoke, or get a pilot’s license but not drink here. Might be dangerous. 😉

    *At least, I think riding without a helmet is legal. It seems like every other biker here goes without one.

  12. ShardReaperon 03 Jun 2010 at 5:13 pm

    Agreed. We do have some messed up laws.

  13. B. Macon 03 Jun 2010 at 6:04 pm

    Admittedly, alcohol is probably more likely to endanger innocent bystanders than most other dangerous activities.

    “I find it a bit silly that an 18 year old is old enough to legally have intercourse, get married, purchase a rifle, join the Army, drive, ride a motorcycle without a helmet*, smoke, or get a pilot’s license but not drink here. Might be dangerous. 😉 ”

    I was discussing that with my sister the other day. It’s a bit weird, but I think it might have more to do with the brain being more developed so it can better handle the effect of alcohol (eg, memory loss etc).

    Sometimes I wish the drinking age was higher here, it wouldn’t bother me since I don’t want to drink, but it would definitely decrease the amount of drunks down the foreshore. They wander there on a Friday and Saturday after going on a pub crawl, most of them are about 18-20. If it’d get rid of them, I’m all for it.
