Fact Or Fiction? Both:
But, What were Ninjas? History shows that ninjas didn't go around Saving people..They had a more dark past.
No one knows for sure if they dressed in those Ninja Outfits. Seeing that I don't think there was a ninja store around!
There is one thing that is true. They were secretive. Spies for the Japanese army. The Whole Ninja assassin thing. Should just be Ninjas.
Well, they were sent to assassinate people using Martial Arts. I don't think that included the whole Elemental Powers featured in Naruto! There is said to be "Ninjas" today. Training in Martial Arts. Some people believe that if you have a black belt in 15 martial arts, than you can become a ninjas. (Today Ninjas are called Urban Ninjas)
The Old Ninjas: their past creeps in the shadows Of Japans Past. We may never be sure of the true past and ways of the ninjas. It may always be a mystery.
They do make killers mangas though!

Peeps by Scott Westerfeld. The First of a two book series. (The Second is called The Last Days)
Vampires, Its not a legend. Its not dying, its not becoming immortal.
Its a disease. Simple as that. A sickness. In this world. You don't become some God. You become a cold blooded killer. The Disease is like a human version of Rabies. But with eating people.
Cal was a normal college kid. Until he meet Morgan. Morgan gave him the disease. Now his job to find all those he's infected.
Wait...Cal should be a cold blooded killer? No. Truth is hes a carrier. A Vampire unchanged by the disease. But, No one calls Vampires, Vampires, They call them Peeps. Or short for Parasite Positive!
But as Cal uncovers some mysteries. Is the Disease Good? Is there two types? Is it there for a reason?
This book deserves a 4 out of 5 stars. Some parts lagged and didn't contain action.
I like how in each EVEN chapter there was some information about a parasite!
It was a good book!
If you need a read. Pick it up!
*At your local library~!*

No, Duh! Sex in Media Drives Earlier Teen Passion
By Sara Goudarzi, LiveScience Staff Writer
posted: 03 April 2006 12:54 am ET
Media with high sexual content is fueling the sex life of teenagers, suggests a new study that surveyed 1,017 black and white teens between the ages of 12 and 14.
The study analyzed 308 different television shows, movies, songs, and magazines commonly used by teenagers and calculated each teens “sexual media diet.” The researchers then followed up with each teen two years later inquiring about their sexual behavior.
As it turns out, white teens who use media with high sexual content were more than two times as likely to have sex by the time they were 16 years old than those who used less. In black teens the relationship was not as solid.
Teens are looking to entertainment media for sexual information because they don't receive it from other sources, said Jane Brown, a professor at University of North Carolina and the principal investigator of the study. "Unfortunately, the media aren't the best sex educators. The media tend to leave out the crucial three C's: commitment, contraception and consequences."
The scientists found that the best way to protect teenagers from early sexual engagement is for parents to communicate on the topic with their kids.
Both black and white teens whose parents disapproved of early sexual activities were less likely to have sex by the time they were 16, the survey found. Those who didn't get a clear sense of disapproval from their parents were more likely to engage in sexual activities.
The researchers believe that teachers, parents, and media should educate teens in order to give them the proper tools to make decisions about their sexual life.
"Otherwise, the media will continue to serve as a kind of sexual super peer that doesn't have the best interests of young people in mind," Brown said.

"Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: 'Because the animals are like us.' Ask the experimenters why it is morally OK to experiment on animals, and the answer is: 'Because the animals are not like us.' Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction."
-Professor Charles R. Magel
As many as 115 million animals are experimented on and killed in laboratories in the U.S. every year. Much of the experimentation-including pumping chemicals into rats' stomachs, hacking muscle tissue from dogs' thighs, and putting baby monkeys in isolation chambers far from their mothers-is paid for by you, the American taxpayer and consumer, yet you can't visit a laboratory and see how the government has spent your money. You can't even get an accurate count on the number of animals killed every year because experimenters and the government have decided that mice and rats and certain other animals don't even have to be counted.
Animal experimentation is a multibillion-dollar industry fueled by massive public funding and involving a complex web of corporate, government, and university laboratories, cage and food manufacturers, and animal breeders, dealers, and transporters. The industry and its people profit because animals, who cannot defend themselves against abuse, are legally imprisoned and exploited.
Fortunately for animals in laboratories, there are people who care. Some of them work in labs, and when they witness abuse, they call PETA. Thanks to these courageous whistleblowers, PETA's undercover investigators and caseworkers, who sift through reams of scientific and government documents, have exposed what goes on behind laboratory doors.
If the ingredients are tested on animals for danger, would you really want to use it?
Here's the main Idea: Animal Testing is basically hurting and torturing the animal. They spend billions of dollars on Animal Testing yet its not just cruel. It doesn't work. Most Animal tests have been proven as fails. Not resulting in any further steps.
We do Animal Testing because animals can't speak, they can't defend themselves, If you wanted Results for HUMANS you test on humans right? Some Dogs were barking in a lab. The researchers decided to cut their vocal cords, not giving the dogs any painkillers or medicines.
The Stories are sad. But its so cruel. Sometimes they cut the toes of the animals off.
Research programs at Harvard, Yale, and Stanford have instituted non-animal testing techniques that have actually proven to be more reliable, accurate, and cost-effective. Yet, inexplicably, most research labs show little or no inclination to change their medieval practices.
Did you know 94% of animal testing is for Beauty and cosmetics? Should Animals Die just so we can look pretty?
How you can help:
Don't buy animal tested products. The Product usually says "Not tested on animals" If it doesn't it mostly likely is.
Don't buy COVERGIRL They are one of the big companies that tests on animals.
If everyone stopped buying the animal tested products than they would go out of business and not test on animals anymore.
Here's the point:
Animal Testing has NO point because it doesn't work, Its Expensive, there is cheaper, more effective ways of testing. The Product shouldn't even be tested if its safe and has non-toxic chemicals in it. Right?
Animals are like humans, Humans are like bully's, we promote the non-bully thing everywhere yet we do harm to the animals we *Evolved* came from. Basically destroying ourselves.
Just The Little things, buying another products, It can save lives. Literally.

Will the World end in 2012?
1. NASA can detect metorites from 2 years away (none coming)
2. The World was SUPPOSED to end in 2000
3. If the governments believe in it we wouldn't be having the 2012 olympics.
4. The 2012 was predicted by people from thousands of years ago.
But What do people think?
No, the Mayans never predicted the world would end. That's just when their calendar ended. The History Channel made people think that the Mayans directly predicted the end of the world in 2012, when they didn't. And why would a calendar ending have any affect on the world ending? If we are going to go by calendars ending then we might as well say the world will end on December 31, 2009 because Hallmark hasn't printed any calendars for 2010! And were the Mayans brilliant scientists? No. Its like people saying Nostradamus predicting the world will end because of the LHC. Nostradamus was a moron. He didn't even know what a particle accelerator was because they weren't invented yet. People can't tell the future, and no the world isn't going to end in 2012. ~Wilson Yahoo Answers user
1. The Mayan count of days runs out of numbers, that's about the only fact.
2. The Mayans made no predictions about anything, except for seasons, solstices, full moons and eclipses, pretty much like we do, this sort of thing is fairly easy to do if you keep records and can do straight forward arithmetic.
3. The prediction that something big would happen in 2012 was invented maybe 20 years ago by a man called Jose Arguelles, he is a former LSD user, an astrologer and has claimed to be the re-incarnation of a Mayan priest among other peculiar things.
4. Since then a lot of other peculiar people and frauds have jumped on his bandwagon including the late Terence McKenna who "predicted" the future by taking drugs and by tossing coins.
5. Some say that the planets will line up. They won't and they can't. It would not mean anything if they did. They said exactly the same thing about the year 2000 which is another time the world was supposed to end. Back about 1958 a lot of the planets did almost line up and nobody noticed anything.
6. Some talk about galactic alignments of this or that. Most of these are not true, and the only one that is nearly right was closest in 1998. Nobody noticed anything. This does not worry the character behind it though. But I don't think he says the world is going to end either.
7. Planets X and Nibiru are invisible, have no size, have no mass and Nibiru can pass through the inner solar system repeatedly without affecting anything. In other words, they don't exist. X was invented by Nancy Lieder who claimed she was told about it by aliens who abducted her and now hears voices in her head.
Nibiru was cooked up by Zecharia Sitchin who invented it to sell books about aliens invading the Earth in ancient times and creating humans as slaves. He said it won't be back till after 2085.
8. There will be no pole shifts. Nancy Lieder claimed that planet X would cause a magnetic pole shift in 2003, but since it didn't happen she postponed planet X to 2012 to fit in with Arguelles ideas. Other people have invented solar flares and other things so they can have a pole shift. Solar flares cannot cause a magnetic pole shift on Earth, their magnetic fields are too weak by large factors.
9. Other predictions about the Sun are false or wrong. The next peak in solar activity is expected in the early - middle of 2013, not 2012 and the latest measurements show that the expected peak will be about average or even lower than average. Peaks in solar activity happen every 11 years. The worst that happens is that powers supplies can be cut in a few places for a few hours and some radio communications are disrupted.
10. Despite what some people say, there are no predictions about 2012 in the Bible, Nostradamus or any other old books. There was no prediction of 9/11 anywhere. These are straight lies.
11. There is no force that can cause a sudden shift in the geographic poles.
12. There are no known large asteroids or comets that are likely to hit the Earth in 2012.
13 The Institute for Human Continuity is owned by Sony pictures and is intended to promote the movie '2012'. It has no actual reality. The 2012 movie is based on Nancy Lieder's failed 2003 predictions.
14. The whole thing is either crazies raving or some others trying to make a few dollars by frightening some people into buying worthless junk or selling garbage shows to TV networks.
15. Most of the people worried about this are under 16. I do not know any adult that gives this material any consideration at all. They know it's garbage. ~http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090926165947AAgK2iC

Where does that bottled water come from?
It is estimated that about 25 percent of the bottled waters
consumed in the U.S. come from municipal water supplies.
Most goes through significant processing such as reverse osmosis, deionization, activated carbon filtration and other treatments.
Read the label carefully. If it is packaged as "purified" or "drinking water," chances are it came from a municipal water supply, and unless the water has been “substantially” altered, it must state on the label that the water comes from a municipal source.
Often images on the label show mountains, snow or other bodies of water. For example, the label design on Aquafina (from Pepsi) gives me the feeling of mountains and snow; implying that Aquafina may be from a mountain spring, rather than bottled at Pepsi plants using processed municipal water. Coke’s Dasani, also one of the leading bottled water brands is processed municipal water with added minerals. Many gallon jug waters are also from municipal sources.
And just what is “natural” water?
The word "natural" is only allowed for bottled water, which is derived from springs or wells where the natural chemical (mineral and trace elements) composition of the water has not been altered as a result of treatment process.
What exactly is “natural carbonation”?
It all started when shoppers assumed that the water in their bottle of Perrier came out of the ground bubbling. And for good reason — their television ads illustrated it that way. The truth, though, is a little more complicated. The carbonation comes from a naturally occurring source in the same spring system.
Originally, according to the company, “these natural gases met and mingled together with the spring underground, rising at a constant pressure and temperature (60 degrees Fahrenheit). A desire for consistency … led French scientists to devise a more efficient means to capture the water's perfect balance of minerals and carbonation in the bottling process. Both the water and natural carbonic gas are now captured independently. They come from isolated points at different depths, within the same geologic formation. Before they come together for bottling, a filter is used to remove any natural impurities in the gas. Once combined in the bottling process, the level of carbonation found in a Perrier bottle is exactly as it is at the spring.”
So now we know.
Types of waters
Bottled water is regulated as a food product by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Bottled water companies must adhere to the FDA's Quality Standards, Standards of Identity (Labeling Regulations) and Good Manufacturing Practices and requires beverage companies to label their waters to define where the water came from and if it's been purified or carbonated. Bottled water can be classified with terms such as “purified,” “spring,” “sterile” and “artesian” (or “artesian well” water). All bottled water sold in the United States (whether imported or domestic) must meet all of the same regulations. Here are the classifications:
Artesian water/artesian well water
Bottled water from a well that taps a confined aquifer (a water-bearing underground layer of rock or sand) in which the water level stands at some height above the top of the aquifer.
Drinking water is another name for bottled water. Accordingly, drinking water is water that is sold for human consumption in sanitary containers and contains no added sweeteners or chemical additives (other than flavors, extracts or essences). It must be calorie-free and sugar-free. Flavors, extracts or essences (such as lemon-lime) may be added to drinking water, but they must comprise less than one-percent-by-weight of the final product or the product will be considered a soft drink. Drinking water may be sodium-free or contain very low amounts of sodium.
Water that has been produced by distillation, deionization, reverse osmosis or other suitable processes and that meets the definition of purified water in the United States Pharmacopoeia (pharmacological code) may be labeled as purified bottled water. Other suitable product names for bottled water treated by one of the above processes may include "distilled water" if it is produced by distillation, "deionized water" if the water is produced by deionization, or "reverse osmosis water" if the process used is reverse osmosis. Alternatively "_____________ drinking water" can be used with the blank being filled in with one of the terms defined in this paragraph (e.g. "purified drinking water" or "distilled drinking water"). These waters are taken primarily from metropolitan water sources, run through mammoth commercial filters, and purified of chlorines, detritus, and other items inappropriate for drinking water. You may have seen vending machines outside of your supermarket that allows you to fill your own bottle for 25 or 50 cents; this is the water and process that is used and is from metropolitan sources or even the tap water adjacent to the machine’s location. They are excellent to cook with when tap water quality is an issue.
Waters containing not less than 250 parts per million total dissolved solids may be labeled as mineral water. Mineral water is distinguished from other types of bottled water by its constant level and relative proportions of mineral and trace elements at the point of emergence from the source. No minerals can be added.
The naturally occurring minerals and trace elements in mineral waters are considered by many to be excellent for health and digestion. Typically, these include iron, potassium, magnesium, manganese, silica, chromium, lithium, and copper. While these are healthful, the value of mineral waters versus spring waters is still debated. Available from both domestic and international sources, the prices vary tremendously based on packaging and location.
These are waters derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth. Spring water must be collected only at the spring or through a bore hole tapping the underground formation finding the spring. Spring water collected with the use of an external force (in other words, a pump) must be from the same underground stratum as the spring and must have all the physical properties, before treatment, and be of the same composition and quality as the water that flows naturally to the surface of the earth. Available from both domestic and international sources, spring waters are ideal for everyday drinking as well as to make coffee, tea, or foods in which the quality of the water is a critical ingredient. Prices vary considerably based both on geographic location and packaging.
Water, which after treatment and possible replacement with carbon dioxide, contains the same amount of carbon dioxide that it had at emergence from the source. (An important note: soda water, seltzer water and tonic water are not considered bottled waters. They are regulated separately, may contain sugar and calories, and by law, are considered soft drinks.)
The bubbles in these waters can help ease digestion, and are available from both domestic and international sources. Some have slight flavorings added such as citrus, but taste even better plain or with a slice of fresh lime or lemon. If burping is an issue, avoid them, but otherwise, they are excellent to drink after meals as a digestif. Some are heavy in sodium, so those with hypertension or sodium restrictions should drink them only occasionally.
These may be compared to soda pop, but infinitely lighter in flavor and absolutely lighter in sugars and sweeteners. They give just a hint of flavors like citrus or berries, have either no or modest amounts of sweeteners from high fructose corn syrup to sugars or honey. They are likely not to be completely calorie-free, but are modest in carbohydrates and calories when consumed sparingly.
Waters with healthful additives
These waters contain everything from additional minerals, vitamins, and other ingredients that make these more a health drink than “just water.” If this is the only way to get your spouse to drink water, great; otherwise, it’s a very expensive way to get your H2O; and in some cases the packaging and the labeling can be misleading. Remember that most Americans do not have vitamin deficiencies and buying waters to add vitamins to your diet might be little more than a waste of money.
These waters are mineral-free, so they’re perfect for curling irons, clothes irons and steamers, humidifiers, and any appliance that requires water. By using distilled waters, you can avoid the mineral muck that often clogs up appliances. Some people view distilled waters as good to drink because it is so pure, but naturally occurring minerals in waters are actually good for you.
Many municipal water supplies, such as New York City, boast water that is as tasty and pure as the most expensive bottled varieties. By law, municipal water supplies must supply its customers a chemical analysis of their water composition. If you haven’t received yours, contact your local water supply. (Many now post their analysis on their Web sites.)
Consumers can filter their municipal water by attaching a commercial filter to the tap, using a pitcher with a carbon filter in it, or buying refrigerators with built-in filters that make both filtered ice and filtered water. These are very good, but be sure to change the filters as recommended.

1. Super manSuperman is comic book history. Without Superman, the first big comic book superhero, we might not have had Spider-Man, Batman, and the others. Due to the success of Superman, other comics companies pushed making superheroes and to that, Superman is owed a huge debt. Decades later, Superman is still going strong, with a movie in the works, multiple titles to choose from, and a hit TV show. The Man of Steel is certainly on top in terms of historical importance, abilities, and current popularity.
2. Spider ManWhat Spider-Man lacked in ability, he made up in heart. The wall-crawler is one of the first of many true to life superheroes and because of this, Spider-Man has become loved and adored by fans the world over. Spider-Man is Marvel comic’s number one superhero, with legions of fans, blockbuster films, and many hot comics to read.
Next to Spider-Man, Wolverine is certainly one of Marvel comic’s most popular superheroes. He was pretty much the focus of the X-Men movies and helped make a star out of Hugh Jackman. Wolverine has quickly risen to the top of the X-Men as the fans most favorite character and considering how many characters there are to choose from, that’s no small task. He can be seen in his own comic as well as The X-Men comics and The New Avengers.
5. The Hulk Many people can relate to unleashing their rage. The Hulk has been a large part of Marvel’s rise to stardom and fans all over have enjoyed the intense action and emotion that The Hulk exudes. One reason fans resonate so well with The Hulk is that we all get angry and so many of us can relate to wanting to release the rage within us, something The Hulk is all to well known for. A hit movie and another on the way, video games, his own comic, cartoons, and toys make The Hulk truly a heavy hitter.
6. Wonder Women
7. Green Lantern
8. Captain America
Who's your favourite super hero? Mine Personally is Wolverine and X-23. X-23 isn't really heard of. But if your interested...
If I had to choose...X-23 would win me over, What I like is it shows that not every hero is always a hero, Sometimes they don't know what is right and wrong. Not all are born with powers some are given going through torture. It tells you not all superheros grew up like Superman. Some were once assassins or had a hard past. In the series, Mutants are "outcasts" hated by the people they save.
