How cool are Ninja?A lot of people think just the word is cool, that Ninja are the ultimate (everything).A lot of people spend much time bickering over who are "real Ninja" or not.People also find Ninja films amusing (or even hilarious, myself included)And of course the "Official Ninja Website"Beyond people who think Ninja are totally awesome, I'd like to know what they've really done?WW2 - any involvement in the Pacific?Assassinations - anyone famous?Kicked-organised-crime-ass?Overthrown any governments?Killed anyone?Are the real Ninja subject to some conspiracy-outlook where "if you've heard about them they aren't real Ninja"?Anyone?

Ninja Weapons 101?

May I ask what qualifications you posess? When you say you "know the way of all the weapons and how to make them in under 10 mins" you are lying. Yes they can be made badly form odd found materials throughout the home, but to make for examble a ninja-to bokken or yari spear at best will take days.

Does anyone have ideas for a futuristic ninja costume inspired by master chief?

For a while now I've been wanting to make a semi-working futuristic suit of armor. The main part of the armor would be the helmet and wrist band. The suit is inspired by Master Chief from Bungies "Halo" series although I would like to bring in some aspects of anime and ninja/ranger characters.A combination of past and future including blades/knives, lights, camera, a walkie-talkie, etc. I can't really access any fiberglass or anything like that so I'm going to modify a motorbike helmet with some material, glue, paper, electronics from a cheap Australian store, etc.So I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what I could make the suit out of and what features I could include in it. All In all I want it to be a futuristic ninja. So I'm asking people with any ideas or expiriences as to what I should do with this plan, keeping in mind that I have very little experience in electronics and I am ridiculously short on cash.

Converted 1990 Ninja ZX-6 Electric Motorcycle

Hi, I'm cross posting this here as I know this is a community of folks who might appreciate something like this project.  I've recently converted a sportbike to electric power.  It was a grad school project but since I'm in the Active Army, I have to PCS (move) to Izmir, Turkey for one year.  Since I don't want to let it sit for a year in my garage, I'm selling it on ebay.  Please check it out and spread the word to anyone interested. It would make a great bike for a college student to ride around campus or the local town.  Or a great starter bike for someone beginning to learn how to ride motorcycles as there's no distracting engine noise or clutch work.  I live in Kansas City, Missouri but have a flexible schedule so I can work with different shipping methods that you use. here's the link and some features: Specifications: -Top Speed: about 52 mph as geared depending on windspeed and terrain -Range: about 15 miles depending on terrain and riding habits -Acceleration: adequate for traffic -Charge time: 5-6 hours -Motor: 72volt GE series wound DC -Batteries: 6 x 12volt 35ah Power Sonic AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) -Controller: Alltrax AXE-7245 (Programmable and with data logging capability via USB cable) -Charger: 72volt 8amp, plug comes out of gas cap and can be plugged in any standard outlet -Contactor: Kilovac EV200 by Tycho Electric -Main Fuse: 400 amp -Battery cage and motor mount: welded angle and tube steel -Weight: 422 lbs  (47 lbs lighter than the factory weight) -72v to 12v converter to run factory wiring harness Features:   -PakTrakr display to show total pack voltage and individual battery voltages -Motor controller can log data via USB cable for battery pack voltage, Motor current, Battery current and throttle position (the graph picture was made by importing the data to microsoft excel) -Factory key switch enables contactor -Neutral dash light wired to show contactor status -Manual switch enables controller -Sidestand switch linked to "interrupt" relay in contactor circuit -Street legal, registered and insured in Missouri thanks -chris

"Re-making" Ninjutsu, combining Krav Maga and Wing Chun

Hiya guys! Recently I had to give up studying Ninjutsu, because there were no close Dojos. I decided to study Wing Chun instead, but I was still very sad I won't become an urban ninja. Later on, I watched some material art TV shows - I then heard about Krav Maga. It's an israeli martial art that focuses on self-defense. I don't want to give up Wing Chun for it, and nor it for Wing Chun. Now here comes the interesting stuff - I came up with a great idea. Ninjas were basically assassins, but that's not what I wanted to be. I wanted a lifestyle. If I will study parkour, I will be able to run jump and hop, like ninjas did. If I will study Wing Chun, I will be an expert an unarmed combat. Krav Maga will teach me weapon stuff - defending attacks, disarming, and fighting with them. All left is to be sneaky, and here I am - a whole new modern ninja-like life style, designed for life in the city! My question is, will I be able to learn Wing Chun and parkour at the same time, and as soon as I'll reach Wing Chun Mastery I'll start with Krav Maga. I'm not sure if I'll ever make it to master 2 martial arts, but the ninjas mastered fighting with almost any weapon, so I guess it's possible. Your opinion?

A sweet Idea for a movie!

Ok, This Idea is either really cool or the dumbest one Ive had yet! What if They made a movie about aliens coming to destroy earth by infecting us with an alien virus that makes us turn into zombies, so the Worlds military makes Super advanced robots to fight them! and because all of the military personnel are fighting aliens The world erupts in mass anarchy and pirates start to sail the sea and attack coastal cities! So chivalrous ninja protect the people from the prates and aliens. But then the Anti-virus the Drug companies makes to stop the virus in the infected mutates and causes certain people to turn into vampires! I think it would be cool but it might also be a bit much! :)

Building a home-training program?

Sup all! I'm really interested in becoming a modern ninja, so I googled it a bit. In order to be an urban ninja, I will have to learn parkour and the highlighted of the traditional 18 ninja skills, others will be useless.(Horsemanship? It's Urban Ninjutu, in a city...) Check wikipedia here for more info. unarmed combat sword techniques stick and staff techniques throwing weapons techniques pyrotechnics and explosives disguise and impersonation stealth and entering methods water training tactics espionage escaping and concealment meteorology geography I need to find a good book/DVD series that will teach me traditional Ninjutsu, thus will teach me all of the listed skills. I want to focus mainly on unarmed combat, followed by stick, staff and sword techniques and weapon throwing. The rest is stealth, to sneak into places without being detected. That should make me a basic ninja. Finally, after I'll know these, I will study the less important skills - the italic skills.  What I ask for help is, to give me a good DVD or a book that will teach me either parkour or Taijutsu(unarmed combat). These are the things I want the most, explained before. I prefer the course to be free, like an online study course.

Non lethal poison blow darts.? I was thinking about making blow darts then the topic struck me, could common natural non lethal poisons or toxins be used in blow darts. This sounds a bit vague, so heres and example: you take poison ivy leaves and either wipe the darts on the leaves or grind up the leaves then rub darts in the mix. Would this work, how effective would this be?. I am not planning on even attempting to try this, this is for informational purposes
