Tell a Friend!

Did you know that you could tell a friend about myninjaplease by clicking on that lil’ link down yonder below each post that says "tell a friend?" Well duhhh. You can also click the appropriate icon to add us to any of the social bookmarking sites we have listed. If you would like to see more or other features let us know!

Read our RSS and remember, SHARING MEANS CARING, my ninjas!!

[Ed: this would be especially crucial for the post right below]

{update}

Ace Dickerson asked us a question:

    1. Ace Dickerson Says:
      Two questions. Call me stupid, but:
      what is "RSS" ?
      and what are the three little image link buttons above "tell a friend" ?

    Well Mr. Dickerson (and I do feel dirty calling you that), I’m glad you asked, you un-saavy ninja. RSS stands for either rich site summary or really simple syndication depending on what ninja you ask. Basically, those links in our sidebar are the links to our RSS feeds. If you use and RSS enabled device (phone, psp, camera, screen saver, browser, umm.. bag of peanuts) then you get a stream from our site of up to date content. That way you dont always have to log in to the site to know what’s going on in the dojo, my son. Thus and therefore, get down on it, my dude!

    Now those little goofy little linked pictures see come to us by way of wordpress plugin Notable which allows you to easily submit an article from this site to one of (in our case) three bookmarking sites. A lot of people use these sites to find web content. For instance, if you have a digg.com account you can "digg" one of our articles by just clicking a button? Good deal, right?

    I hope that answers your question and thanks for supporting [tag]mnp[/tag], famly.

Cool but scary tech of the day - the Bionic Hornet

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel is using nanotechnology to try to create a robot no bigger than a hornet that would be able to chase, photograph and kill its targets, an Israeli newspaper reported on Friday.

The flying robot, nicknamed the "bionic hornet", would be able to navigate its way down narrow alleyways to target otherwise unreachable enemies such as rocket launchers, the daily Yedioth Ahronoth said.

"Atheists in the Holy Land"

"We should lie and say we’re all Jewish, "declared Wesam, "then they’ll let us in." "Or, I don’t know," he faltered, "maybe only Muslims are allowed in on Fridays." "I think if we say we’re Christian it’ll be more likely," I whispered back, spooked by the vacant dusty streets ringed by tangles of barbed wire.

"No," Alex countered, "If we just say we’re all Americans it’ll work. They’ll like that we’re all Americans."

A La Mode Rebellion

We find ourselves in an untenable situation. On the one hand, we criticize conformity and encourage individuality and rebellion. On the other hand, we lament the face that our ever-increasing standard of material consumption is failing to generate any lastin increase in happiness. This because it is rebellion, not coformity, that generates the competitice structue that drives the wedge between consumption and happiness. As long as we continue to prize individuality, and as long as we express that individuality through what we own and where we live, we can expect to live in a consumerist society.


excerpt from The Rebel Sell by Joseph Heath and Andrew Potter and counterpoints from a blogger
