I cannot help but wonder, what is the official Pastafarian position on Ninjas?

There has been much animosity between the two groups, pirate and ninja, but in the end we celebrate the diversity of others, and any "attacks" on each other are taken as good natured fun, just as in sports, where two teams love to "hate" each other, but do not really hate each other.

I'm sitting here trying to think of a nice, pleasant way to say "cowgirl" that will actually make it past the mods...

Can one be a good Pastafarian while believing that Ninjas > Pirates?
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

That might be a problem. I suppose if you are a Pirate, but you have a real inferiority complex, it could work.

No, no, NO lads!

I'm the mother of a ninja (with five black belts)* and his own martial arts school. I might be a granny with a dodgy heart and crippling arthritis, unable to do anything more strenuous than a bit of horizontal Tai Chi, but I know I'm superior to him because I'm a Pirate.

There. :fsm_yarr:

<rant>

Slightly off topic, but I used to wonder when I would ever be old enough that people would stop calling me a 'girl' and start referring to me as a 'woman'. After all, the male sex is generally referred to as a 'boy' no older than somewhere between 18 and 25 before they become a 'man' (except, of course, in a group).

I've given up wondering. I woke up one morning and just knew I'll be a 'girl' until I'm so ancient that I'll be called an 'old girl'. :(

I get people twenty years younger than me in shops saying "Oh, serve that girl over there, she was here first". :?

Out of interest, when did anyone ever hear someone refer to a man in his fifties as a 'boy'?

</rant>

BTW, I don't drink alcohol. I'm quite loopy enough already that I don't need any further de-inhibiting; besides, my capacity is so low that I'm legless on one small drink!

:roll:

However, cyber-booze is OK - who fancies a firkin or two and a good knees-up? :D

I'm putting it on the ninja's tab! :fsm_ninja:

Sorry if i offended you. i was going for the phrase "a ________ kind of guy/gal/boy/girl/etc." rather than trying to award you a diminutive or immature title. Again, sorry.

I got into a discussion about this on campus last semester. We don't really have any male rites of passage in the U.S. Don't get me wrong, i know that there are a few. Getting a drivers liscense, prom, graduating from H.S., a college degree, marriage, etc. But what i'm getting at is that there's no specific rite that says "now you're a man" when it's over. While getting my anth degree i started to feel kind of cheated by this, so i stole the Maori practice of getting tattooed at important times or for sepcific events. I got two kokopelli images on my shoulder blades when i got my anth degree, i'm getting a "tribal" sun between them as soon as i get a job (damned economy). As soon as i'm back in shape (already down to 190 from 215! Go me!) i'm getting "ΑΘΕΟΣ" tattooed on my left pec. Still trying to decide what to get to represent my munchkins...

You didn't offend me! Actually, 'offended' isn't an emotion I can ever recall feeling, unless it is the same as 'amused resignation'!

Have an apologetic hug!

It was my fault - I should have put <amused rant>...</amused rant> :)

I like the wording of your tattoo - could you also have it in runes on the other side? :wink:

I think it looks rather impressive in Japanese:

Scott, as to your other point:

In Britain and Ireland there is a rite of passage - it's called going to the pub on your eighteenth birthday for your first legal pint! Image
