Call me Ishmael. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off- then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship. There is nothing surprising in this. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the ocean with me.more...
There now is your insular city of the Manhattoes, belted round by wharves as Indian isles by coral reefs- commerce surrounds it with her surf. Right and left, the streets take you waterward.

Ninja were people of feudal japan trained in Ninpo or Ninjutsu. It was possible to use skills learned in assasination-which was done, but not coldly. Ninja's were japans peace keepers and information gathers-they would assasinate political powers that threatned peace of japan, and would often be recruited by a higher power (such as a warlord like Oda Nobunaga, or Ieyasu Tokugawa) to spy on enemy's and gather information. Ninja were originally called *Shinobi*, literally translating into a expert at information gathering. Ninja groups were divided into families and clans. The two regions were Ninjutsu developed and Ninja were founded were Iga and Koga provinces. there were roughly 53 subgroups of Koga and Iga. One of the most famous Ninja in history was Hattori Hanzo-a famous warlord and Ninja of Iga.more...
In 1676, the book Bansenshukai about Ninja methods was written by Fujibayashi Yasutake, a Samurai of Iga castle.
In 1681 the book Shoninki (correct Ninjutsu memories) was written by Fujibayashi Masatake.
In 1653 the book Ninpiden meaning secret teachings of Ninjutsu was written by Hattori Hanzo Yasunaga.
There were very few ninja-when oda nobunaga attacked Iga, 80 ninja fled.
Genbukan and Bujinkan are the only organizations keeping true Ninjutsu alive today.
Ninja didnt wear black very often-they wore deep red or dark green when on missions, and in winter snow, White.
Ninja were often Samurai too-afterall its only Title, not material.
Fruitbooting (or Fruit Booting, noun use is "Fruitbooter"), a slang term refering to the use of skiblades/snowblades. Fruitbooting, the use of skiblades on ski slopes, is typically looked down upon by the snowboarding community. Fruitbooting also refers to tricks or stunts conducted while wearing skiblades/snowblades.

Fruitbooting is so lame. That guy needs to get himself a proper snowboard.
