    Serious Question

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Heather Louise, Apr 22, 2008.

    Right, a really serious question for everoyne to ponder, one which has an answer which will effect the rest of their lives.


    What would you rather be, a pirate, a ninja, a cowboy or an indian ??


    I would os be a pirate. I would be called Captain Starling and would have a bright red parrot called Biscuit that can talk to me in proper English and I would look ace :D


    What about you ??

    I would be a ninja. Sure, they're Japanese, but they dress in all black, they're stealthy, and they can kill you without knowing it's coming. Katana is a common weapon. They're agile, delicate, and powerful. Close range is a downfall, but you're nearly invisible anyway.

    My second choice was a pirate.

    Heather, you're right. Pirates are much better than cowboys.

    C.... W... says she would be a pirate (she's right next to me).

    I, on the other hand, would be a pirate.ie ninja that had Indian in me, but became a cowboy to escape being put in a reservation. I then found the sea, became a pirate, and then after, went to ninja school, where I took Ninja 101, 102, and 111. (It took me longer to understand, I'm Indian :p)

    for the sake of your mental health, i sure hope you're not serious!...

    i'm curious as to why all of your choices are 'guy'-types and all are into violence, if you see 'cowboy' as the gun-totin' kind...

    I wouldn't really choose any of them. But if those were my only choices. I think I would have to settle for indian (assuming you mean native American). They have the most respect for the land of the choices available.

    If I really had a choice, I would prefer to be an explorer, preferably interstellar.

    No fair! Interstellar explorers have laser guns and bulletproof spacesuits.
