AndiTheBarvarian: That book really exists!! I friend of mine got it, but I can't ask him where he kept it because he was never seen again... Dec 10, 2018 7:55:23 GMT *
redscorpion: You can write about how ninjas can "turn invisible and so can you" if you study some ancient texts that were banned by the Shogunate, but are available direct from you for only $29.95 (with a tactical black nylon cover). Dec 9, 2018 18:59:45 GMT *
redscorpion: Don't forget the chapter on "Food Court Eating for Enhanced Ninja Speed". Plus tips and pointers on which kiosk sells the best swords and the merits of a Philippine made blade vs. Pakistani. Dec 9, 2018 18:56:44 GMT
ouroboros: How could I forget the story of the "7 Mall Cops" Dec 9, 2018 18:28:44 GMT
ouroboros: SYWTBA Ninja? A new zero-g popup edition of all the myths you've ever heard from That Guy....including such classics as "poof--disnt see THAT coming", "Greasy Dave n the five fingered death punch", "Talia and the Food Court Shogunate" Dec 9, 2018 18:24:56 GMT
ouroboros: HAHAHA that laugh oh my pain but worth it if you add "zero-g" to "popup book" Dec 9, 2018 18:18:36 GMT
redscorpion: No worries. Lots of people write books about things they know nothing about. You can make it a children's pop-up book. Dec 9, 2018 17:59:54 GMT
ouroboros: I would have to truly give up my meditative and spiritual pursuits to embrace the love of 7/11 hot dawgs and take up worship of The Big simply a dabbĺer in mall ninjary. Dec 9, 2018 17:53:20 GMT
redscorpion: Perhaps during your recovery you can write a book about mall ninjas. Dec 9, 2018 16:15:21 GMT
nerdthenord: Morning. Cold here. 45 degrees Fahrenheit and damp. Dec 9, 2018 16:02:47 GMT
ouroboros: I've become so bored in recovery I have formulated a backstory to go with that historically important artifact at UPI Dec 9, 2018 15:56:54 GMT
ouroboros: Though, I did peruse eBay for a nice ninja to ... I failed to find anything more mystical than a copy of the magical blade available at my local gas station/junk store Dec 9, 2018 15:54:02 GMT
ouroboros: Birthday with friends party. It's at a trampoline park so I've been banned...don't think my chest could handle my usual triple flip mall ninja practice routine roday Dec 9, 2018 15:51:33 GMT
ouroboros: Sounds like a day of blankets n hit drinks here too. My eldest turns 11 on the 21st but today is her fr Dec 9, 2018 15:50:16 GMT
redscorpion: Maybe do some gun cleaning and knife sharpening. Dec 9, 2018 14:53:58 GMT
redscorpion: Cold and raining here today. 'tis a good day to settle in with some Irish coffee, a warm blanket, and a selection of good movies. Dec 9, 2018 14:53:12 GMT *
ouroboros: -10 celcius and the bones are itching deep today. Dec 9, 2018 13:48:37 GMT
redscorpion: I love the smell of black powder in the afternoon.... Low turn out at the reenactment, but that meant I got better parking. Also got a business card from a custom knife maker and leather worker. I see less money in my future... Dec 9, 2018 0:20:05 GMT
ouroboros: -17 degrees c, no snow yet but winds are rising. Might get some snow if we get some wet moist air but it's a dry -17 out there... Dec 8, 2018 19:25:15 GMT
csills2313: Have to wait until they restock!! Dec 8, 2018 18:04:05 GMT
