So I've just gotten back from seeing the two-week-old hit Marvel movie Iron Man.

I gotta say, Robert Downy Jr. was doing some fine acting. Actually, the acting in general was pretty good across the board, save maybe for the old bad guy.

As for the plot, I'd give it a 5/5. It had many turns and crazy shit that was awesome.

So I don't really wanna say too much except for go and see it if you haven't.

Actually, if you have seen it, go see it again.

So, what does everyone think of this movie?

I'm giving it a 5/5!

The Metal Man

Let me get this straight....

So this was somewhat brought to my attention recently, although I've been subconsciously dwelling on it for a while.

Now, what I'm about to do may offend some people, it may make some people laugh. One thing it will do is make sense in this chaos that is known as the universe.

Another thing that people may think is that "wow Manic-Man's a retard for putting this much work into something that no one really cares about".

This is UNTRUE!

I care for one, and thats really all it takes for me to want to post something.

The topic of this post, a topic which as made me ponder for quite some time is as follows:

Why does the ninja, Naruto, wear orange?

Now, I haven't ever really seen the show, but it's anime, which is enough to make me NEVER want to see it. But I'm pretty sure that having an orange ninja completely defeats the purpose of having a ninja.

Lets look at some outside sources, shall we? (This is when the hatred of Manic-Man begins) defines a ninja as: a member of a feudal Japanese society of mercenary agents, highly trained in martial arts and stealth (ninjutsu), who were hired for covert purposes ranging from espionage to sabotage and assassination. ( DEFINITION HERE)

I'm no expert on the ways of feudal Japanese societies, but orange ninja?

It seems to me that the major purpose of a ninja is to use their abilities without the enemy knowing. In my mind, one of the most eye-catching colours is orange.

I guess a ninja could still be useful even when they've been spotted but then the whole purpose of training a ninja goes to waste as well. After the ninja has been spotted, couldn't you use a normal warrior?

At any rate, I leave this idea up for debate and I am eagerly awaiting response to this thought (although I feel as though it will attract none, seeing as how im not a well-known NGer)

So I obviously lied when I said that I would only have one blog post, but hey, Im only human.

This weekend, I noticed something. While at my place of employment, I noticed that sometimes, people can be weird. I noticed that although I heard from other sources that some people aren't too fond of others, it seems that they still communicate as friends and put up a charade to make it seem as though they are friends. Why???

It seems that its soo much work to pretend to be friends with someone when you really can't stand em. I guess Im guilty of this from some point in my life, but I'd still like to know why.

Of course, it might just be that people think that feelings should be spared. However, that doesn't quite seem right...

At any rate, comments are welcomed!

So as I peruse NG, I notice many people have many posts on their blogs. And the more I see, the more i wonder why I don't have one. Then I realize that it's 'because i hardly use NG.

Until now.

I've decided that I should become more a part of NG, since I made an account. Might as well not let it go to waste. But I try to think of what to do to contribute. I'm not good at animation and I don't have the patience to practice, unfortunately. So I figure that I should do what I can do best.

That is tell everyone what I think when no one really cares.

A startling truth this may be, but no one will really notice the NG outcast that suddenly makes a post in his blog. But what can I say.

I'm a attention whore.

Anyways, I figure that I might as well get to doing something on NG and this is the easiest and by far the most thrilling.
