First I was like




then I was like





Actually, it turns out ninjas used to be big cannabis farmers and used it to facilitate their jumping training. When I read that, the first ninja I thought of was Ryu Hayabusa and his Izuna drop.

The learning ninja plants a batch of cannabis when he begins training, and endeavors to leap over it every day. At first this is no challenge, but the plants grow quickly, and so must the diligent ninja’s jumping ability. By the end of the season, the warrior can allegedly clear the full grown stand of cannabis. This certainly attests as much for the plant’s vitality as to the ninja’s leaping ability.
Turns out that Japanese cannabis strains are some of the tallest in the world (15ft+), so this makes even more sense. Those "maple leaves" you see all over traditional Japanese artwork are actually pot leaves. lol The more you know!

It reminds me an episode of Samuraï Champloo that made me laugh so hard.

My Username comes from Discworld. I often rely too much on style and I tend to be "Fair" with my opponent.It's a cocky attitude costing me victories...

It's a reminder to use dirty tactics and forcing me to end it when I have an opportunity...

"stuff the bloody Marquis Of Fantailler !"

Straight from Wikipedia :

A set of rules in the noble art of fisticuffs developed by the Marquis of Fantailler which involved chest out-thrust and fist balled in a spirit of manly aggression, as well as places were you are not allowed to hit an opponent. Using these rules is a fairly effective way to commit Suicide. The rules are not much use against an opponent who does not abide by the rules, for example using a chair to batter the user of the rules senseless. The last words of many a fighter are "Stuff the bloody Marquis of Fantailler...". Carrot has been upbraided in his time by Commander Sam Vimes for trying to use them at the wrong time. Gavin adopted a version of the rules for a fight with Wolfgang, implying strongly the similarity between him and Carrot. Even Gaspode knows not to use them - he goes straight for a very vital part of anyone he's fighting. Annotation Based on the Marquess of Queensberry Rules, the code of generally accepted rules in the sport of boxing. They were named so because John Douglas, 9th Marquess of Queensberry publicly endorsed this code. They are as follows:

To be a fair stand-up boxing match in a 24-foot ring, or as near that size as practicable.

No wrestling or hugging (clinching) allowed.

The rounds to be of three minutes duration, and one minute's time between rounds.

If either man falls through weakness or otherwise, he must get up unassisted, 10 seconds to be allowed him to do so, the other man meanwhile to return to his corner, and when the fallen man is on his legs the round is to be resumed and continued until the three minutes have expired. If one man fails to come to the scratch in the 10 seconds allowed, it shall be in the power of the referee to give his award in favour of the other man.

A man hanging on the ropes in a helpless state, with his toes off the ground, shall be considered down.

No seconds or any other person to be allowed in the ring during the rounds. Should the contest be stopped by any unavoidable interference, the referee to name the time and place as soon as possible for finishing the contest; so that the match must be won and lost, unless the backers of both men agree to draw the stakes.

The gloves to be fair-sized boxing gloves of the best quality and new.

Should a glove burst, or come off, it must be replaced to the referee's satisfaction. A man on one knee is considered down and if struck is entitled to the stakes. That no shoes or boots with spikes or sprigs be allowed.

The contest in all other respects to be governed by revised London Prize Ring Rules.

:D

My name is now Crapo everywhere but here, but my brother had a youtube channel with the same name (crimsonwarrior) and I robbed the username xD.

As for Crapo, it's because I made it to top 100 Eddy players in the world for Tekken 7 and I'm taking the piss out of the character (Capo) for being bad in this installment. I'm a troll basically.

The "Dragon" part of my name is the result of 1. I like dragons, 2. I was born during the year of the dragon of the lunar calendar. As for the "Awakens" part, I usually keep my problems, stress and frustration to myself and then let it all out when no one is around, and also probably something to do with the lore of dragons in the Elder Scrolls series but I forgot what it was.

Coming to think of it, I should have gone with "Waking Dragon", "Dragon Falcon", or "Draconic Falcon" instead. (The latter two because I like falcons and other raptors, and no, it has nothing to do with Ryu Hayabusa, serious.)

New West Knifeworks are the talented folks that made the chef's knife I used in my 3 years of Culinary school so I named my E-mail after them. Same E-mail I registered my PSN account with so I just took the @_____ out. NewWestFan seems like a stupid name but most people just shorten it to West which sounds just fine.

Back in the PS3 days I also went by Renji to some.

3 Years of Culinary School and another year and change in a high class restaurant on sauté and the grill. I definitely know what I'm doing with food. :D

I typically bake all the desserts and roast the turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas for the family. School was an invaluable life changing time for me and it always makes me sad when people call it a waste of time and effort. Sometimes it's not about the stupid piece of paper you get at the end.
