In the latest IM tellin', Sean and I debate the rules that really should govern ninjas, among other things.
Sean: vampires, by nature, are essentially smooth criminals
Sean: if you think about it
Ben: that is a good point ... almost like ninjas
Sean: ninjas are not smooth criminals
Sean: because you cannot by any means measure a ninja to be smooth or not
Sean: because....who is going to see them?
Ben: fluent: smooth and unconstrained in movement
Ben: i think by virtue of not being able to see them, if it's witnessed that a ninja is at point a, and then at a later time at point b, then his/her movement would have to qualify as smooth, no?
Sean: but for all you know
Sean: the motion between point a and point b could have been the most jerky, strange, robotic movement ever made
Ben: but if you don't notice it, does it really happen?
Sean: plus, ninjas exist on a higher plane of existance
Sean: so they cannot be quantified or categorized by normal standards
Ben: now you're going overboard
Ben: you are treating ninjas like chuck norris!
Sean: take a few seconds to think about what chuck norris really is
Sean: and you will realize that he but sits on the highest rank of ninja
Ben: i can agree with that
Ben: but you can't lump all ninjas into elite class
Ben: because if you do that, then an elite class ceases to exist
Ben: there have to be bad ninjas, if there are good ones
Sean: which is why he sits ABOVE the highest rank of ninja
Sean: there is no class that can hold a man of chuck norris' stature
Ben: so, let me get this straight
Ben: single-celled amoeba -> .... -> fish -> ...
Ben: -> man -> ninjas -> chuck norris
Sean: put into simple terms, yes
Ben: but you can still classify fish as being smooth or not smooth
Ben: it's linear ...
Ben: so unless man is completely separate from ninjas and chuck norris, then those rules could still apply
Ben: oh, how could i forget!
Ben: you are a secular humanist
Ben: now this makes PERFECT sense
Ben: sorry for the confusion ... as a liberal quaker, some things are just too hot to handle, and too cold to hold
Sean: clearly our religious beliefs do not come together on this issue
Sean: you know what that means right?
Sean: I have no choice but to call a crusade
Ben: i do not call it a crusade ... i call it a jihad ... therefore ... you must die!
Sean: prepare to be inquisitioned!
Ben: prepare to be basted, turkey!
