Devil`s Advocate[edit]

Gwyllgi (talk) 15:36, 30 December 2012 (UTC) I think this page is more than a little generalizing every young weapon loving brat. i see 2 seperate camps, the otaku who likely grew up watching anime, power rangers, and star wars and the "modern caligula" who is generally 8-18, plays COD, and lives in a rural neighborehood. by dividing them we further distinguish them and can better define them. while both are similar their motivations, outlook, and goal can be quite different. one thing ive definently notice is that theres alot of phallic imagery.

To what extent[edit]

Does the phrase 'All mou, no trew' (all mouth, no trousers) apply to these persons? Can they be directed towards paintballing and similar pursuits (and have fights with trip-up roots and rabbit holes)? (talk) 15:17, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Close. Pretty much the fact is, they'd likely lose those fights with tree roots and rabbit holes and a mole hole would trap them forever. They talk smack, but never actually do something that would reveal to themselves their inability to recognize their lack of knowledge of anything that isn't bullshit.Wzrd1 (talk) 04:17, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Ohhhh Leuders (talk) 00:16, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Could be an actual badass, or it could be a photo studio in Murmansk with fake props catering to pre-Soviet teens. BTW, God Jul and enjoy your Gröt. Leuders (talk) 20:54, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Original forum where the term came from[edit]

I read most of it, and the part about dealing with teenage shoplifters at Hillshire Farms got my attention. I work in retail (not security), I even have the "shrinkbuster" pin from thwarting someone from trying to defraud the company, and as someone who watched a teenage girl get caught by a manager one day, the only thing more amusing than the idea of seeing a person like her get shot in the knee over petit theft is the idea of how corporate and the police would react to that. :D By the way, I'm being sarcastic; what she did was ridiculous and worthy of her being thrown on the ground and held for the police, but it would be horrible for that poor girl to get shot over petit theft.

Another failure[edit]

From the intro quote 'secret weak points of his face, known only to you' - why wouldn't said mugger access the same information resources and learn how to contact there?

And surely intending mall ninjas are likely to draw more 'official' attention to themselves than the people they wish to act against? Anna Livia (talk) 14:18, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
