    It should be noted that the Shaolin aren't really Buddhist monks anymore. Its essentially just a martial arts academy with the facade of a religious monastary. Think about it - a major religious site that was attacked by the government is now officially a tourist attraction as designated by the same government.

    Also, Buddhist monks... getting ANGRY over words on the internets.

    'I pissed off Shaolin Monks'

    That would look good on your CV... you'd have to be extremely courageous or insane...

    However, Ninja's or Monks? Martial Arts ability aside, Ninjas are infinitly cooler. Especially if they're from Ninja Scroll. They can turn into rock and poison people through sex. Thats hardcore.

    ...aren't Shaolin Monks supposed to be all full of zen and junk? >_>

    Seriously, that's one of the most retarded things I've ever read.

    Moreover, when discussing Zen, shouldn't the operative word be "empty" rather than "full?" It's all so confusing.

    I would have loved to have seen the first reaction by the monks in person. The one monk calling all his friends over, the frenzied debate as to whether or not they should tell the master... I think it would have been EPIC LULZ.

    I don't think the people posting that the Ninja kicked the butts of the Kung Fu monks is far from the truth thou. Ninja are extremely well trained assassins, who learn killing blows and cripling attacks. Kung Fu monks also are well trained, but do not possess the will/want to kill, murder and cripple people, therefore the style of Martial Arts is more subdued, leaving it open to several weaknesses. Which I am sure the Ninja exploited.

    LOL.

    It's already epic lulz. Dude trolled the Shaolin Temple.

    I gotta wonder what the ninjas are thinking about this. Are they all like, "Well, dang, now we gotta go do this," or did they really kick Shaolin's ass, but so hard and so stealthily that Shaolin hasn't yet figured out its ass has been royally kicked?

    Don't know much about Bhuddist warrior monks then do you. ;)  Google Ikko-ikki, granted they are Japanese but Shaolin was who they based themselfs on. Shaolin will kill you dead and not think anything of it. That whole Kung-fu show and it's sequel was BS on what a Shaolin was really like.

    Shaolin monks are capable of incredible feats of strength and endurance, one monk once on Ripleys Believe it or Not actually made a cup of water boil in the palm of his hand... thats some metaphysical SHIT right there... The abilities of the ninja are over exaggerated in modern times, they were excellent assassins, trained in a deadly form of martial arts, they were cat burglars masters of theft espionage and subterfuge but they werent magical, and dont have the same mental discipline as a monk.

    As I said, it is highly likely they're not monks, just martial artists dressed as monks.

    Well in the case of the shaolin monk i was speaking of, a scientist called it biothermal manipulation, where the monk is disciplined enough to focus the heat energy built up in the body to a focal point, like the palm of his hand. No superpower there... just unequalled discipline and control over your body. I show the same abilities when im piss loaded drunk and wander around to find a bathroom.

    And while I have seen monks with cell phones(Anthony Bourdain), I'm not sure about internet access in a temple, particularly underground lines.
