Have you always dreamed of being a ninja? Did people crush your dreams by telling you Hollywood made them up? Not true! In fact ninja were, and are very real. The CIA even has a skill and history page dedicated in ninja. Even more shockingly, there is a city in Japan hiring real ninja for real money. $25,000-$30,000 USD per year in fact. IGA, Mie Prefecture, Japan has put the call out; they need ninja. A lot of ninja.
Before you pack your Ebay ninja suit and grab your ninja sword, throwing stars, and caltrops, there is a kicker. Yes the job is real, but, they don't need katana wielding ninja for assassinations, they need them for entertainment. Still, if you can live with getting paid to be a Disney World style ninja, the job is real, and it pays spendable money. You'll be a real Japanese ninja. That in itself is one hell of a pickup line.
