As some of you might (or not) know, the first message sent over the internet was:

"WHO WOULD WIN? A PIRATE OR A NINJA?"

Now I ask YOU the same question!

Provide at least one reason...

(I bet Lysergic has been looking foward to this thread!)

Below is a record of the first message ever sent over the ARPANET. It took place at 22:30 hours on October 29, 1969. This record is an excerpt from the "IMP Log" that we kept at UCLA. I was supervising the student/programmer Charley Kline (CSK) and we set up a message transmission to go from the UCLA SDS Sigma 7 Host computer to the SRI SDS 940 Host computer. The transmission itself was simply to "login" to SRI from UCLA. We succeeded in transmitting the "l" and the "o" and then the system crashed! Hence, the first message on the Internet was "Lo!". We were able to do the full login about an hour later.

But to the question at hand, I think the pirate would just put a musket ball through the head of the ninja before he got too close.

Ninja loses................

Then later Ray Tomlinson sent the first email message in 1971, something along the lines of "TESTING 1 2 3 4" or "QWERTYUIOP", he can't remember exactly himself.

Ninjas and pirates would never fight, they would team up and conquer the world.

You made Mr. Miyagi angry!
