The Ultimate Question

Think of a question; A question so renowned, that it is deliberated all over the world at this very moment; A question so old, that it has been pondered since time began; A question so opinionated that it has pratically split the world into two. I convey you all today, this question.

For years, this question has been debated by our fore-fathers (and fore-mothers, lets not be sexist) as one of the most debated questions of all time. Some would call this the ultimate question; others would think less of this question, but the point of the matter is the question itself…

So, brave people of The Magic Ball Network Forums™ I have decided to gather you all here on this most glorious day, to bring justice to this long forgotten question that lies deeply engraved inside us and solve this enigma once and for all...



Which would you rather be... a pirate or a ninja?

Obviously a ninja, I get a katana and I can terrorize everyone with my swift moves.

A pirate on the other hand is nothing without his ship and crew.

Pirate: Boat, treasure, parrot, hook for a hand, peg leg, sword, cannon, but silly pirate clothes.

Ninja: Better sword, total sneakiness, wearing your pajamas all the time, "ultimate power", poison darts, ninja stars.

I'd be a ninja

/me brains exploded due to the hardness of the question.

Ninjas are cool:

But on the other hand....

A pirate I was meant to be, trim the sails and roam the seas.....

Seriously, you'd never want to be one. You think fighting and being strong is cool and that you'd love to have such might. I know you prefer a normal life, without much violence. I hate it if people think they'd be fine as warrior.

Umm... Twinsal... this is... kinda... a joke...

I don't think any of us nowadays would be able to get a job as a pirate/ninja (), and I think that everyone would prefere a normal life...

...Although, It would be kinda cool

P.S. This is a lot coming from you. The first time I spoke to you, you gave me a death threat...

The thing with pirates is that they got really bad hygiene and health. So you'd probably die wayyy to early for me taste

Ninja's on the other hand, are just kewl ^_^

I'll shutup, it's just that this is one of the things that can make me really angry.

But to answer the question:
Allthough ninja's are cool(Kat & Ana are), I'd probably prefer a pirate (Monkey Island, Skies of Arcadia Legends anyone?)

tough choice, either a pillaging murderous rapist that can drown any minute on the sea, or a quiet murderer with all kinds of ways to kill lots of people and then goes on thinking this slaughter was honourable.....

I'l get back to you on this

What is the real secret of Monkey Island?

What about Chris the Ninja Pirate though?

pirates are soooo cool ^_^ i love the whole 'world' of sunny islands and spanish empire and english privateers and africans brought by the slave trade who don't speak english or spanish and natives and conquistadores and piratey towns and stuff. and dreadlocks. ok i don't 'love' those things but i love the atmosphere. pirates are cool ^_^ i'm going to see that 'pirates of the caribbean' film soon - it looks really stupid but hey, it's piratey (and it has geoffrey rush and johnny depp who are cool and who are in 2 of my favourite favourite films). some of my favourite old films are piratey films. (i love westerns too. i wish they still made them.) *breathe*
