First off, I wanted to congratulate those Councilors who voted in favor of proceeding with the Recreation Bond. It’s nice to see them give the residence of Los Alamos/White Rock the opportunity to decide the outcome of this proposal.
Secondly, I wanted to offer up an idea for the now defunct Smith’s grocery store. It’s in line with the Recreation Bond but would require private investment rather than County funds.
How awesome would it be to have a Ninja training course here in Los Alamos? Think about it: We all know that LANL is a leading lab in regards to nuclear threat deterrent. But we also have scientists working not only on advanced Iron Man suits but also, under the guidance of ATOM, we have never been closer to subatomic miniaturization and the creation of supernatural genius-level intellects not currently exhibited in man.
And, if the rumor is true, the primary reason the Manhattan Project National Historical Park hasn’t opened the secret tunnel under McDonald’s is because it’s a secondary entrance into the Bat Cave! People ask why we don’t see Batman. Think about it, Los Alamos is a pretty safe town, he’s probably spending the majority of his time down in Albuquerque. So as things stand now, we have a new underdevelopment Iron Man suit, ATOM leading scientists in the development of subatomic miniaturization and Batman all living and working here in Los Alamos!
Now, what if you add a world class ninja training center where men, women and children can learn the 18 skills of Ninjutsu? Under the guidance of 300 year old Grandmasters, those who graduate from this 6-week long training course could realistically guard not only LANL and its secrets but ultimately our Country. Once these participants learn the “Ninja Way” we would have a stealthy and lethal force of many that could be deployed to the far reaches of the world to save us from evils we don’t even know of yet, or they could be vacation fill-ins for the Protective Force here at LANL.
Regardless of their current assignment, wouldn’t Los Alamos be an even safer place with the presence of Ninjas? I know there would be concerns from the community about people sneaking around town in black ninja suits and some families would begin to wonder why their loved ones never returned from the Ninja training center. But come on, we live in Los Alamos where we’re trained not to ask silly questions like: what’s your name and what do you do for work. The questions that arise will be addressed by the Grandmasters at the appropriate time. And for those questioning the presence of Ninjas sneaking around town, I ask: if you can’t see the Ninja is the Ninja really there?
To summarize; we here in Los Alamos are already home to world class nuclear scientists working to make the world a safer place to live and have superhero’s living and working alongside our already bright scientific minds. What better way to further advance the security of our nation than to open a world class Ninjutsu training center?
