    Hey, you joke, but the whole "devils bargain at a crossroad" thing was a weirdly common accusation once.

    So, either --Ninja sold his soul for WASD pickin' skills,
    --Ninja is a robot from the future, or
    --Ninja is multiboxing with himself.

    Or a combination of the three. Ninja's avatar is being controlled simultaneously by two of his own doppelgangers. One of them is a robot from the future, and one of them sold his soul to the devil. Two others refurbish homes/sell homes, respectively.

    I once read a comic where the main character had cloned himself before college so every clone could get a different degree, and they all merged at the end of college so he could retain knowledge of all possible fields.

    That character's name? Dr. Mcninja.

    Coincidence????

    This one isn't so much esports as just general streaming of high level play.

    Now the clip of one of the dude's games that Tycho linked where he shoots people as he tears down a building and builds a skybridge without skipping a beat? That should make you feel old.

    What is it with supernatural creatures and crossroads? I mean, between going to a crossroad to bargain with the devil, and the idea that you can thwart a vampire by pouring rice at a crossroads so that they'll spend the entire night counting them (and the crossroads make it extra difficult for them because they lack spatial reasoning or something)

    I think its just a side effect of the human subconscious obsession with patterns. Our stupid brains love them, so all the mythical bullshit we make up revolves around patterns, shapes, numbers and lines too.

    Crossroads are between things. So other things are between things at crossroads, too.

    Ditto with dawn, dusk, and midnight having occult connotations. Or solstices and equinoxes. The idea of boundaries and points of crossing them having special properties is a pretty universal characteristic of myths and legends.

    I don't think one is a doppelganger. I think it's a wizard clone situation like Jim is currently struggling with...only they joined forces.

    Having teenaged RPG leads is really cool until you stop being a teenager yourself. Do you remember being seventeen? You're a dumbass at seventeen! I wanna be saved by the guy who's twenty-seven. He's at least payed taxes. He knows how to do shit. He can drive.

    There's twice as much traffic at a crossroads than if you wait to meet someone (or set your trap) anywhere else

  • LeptonLepton Registered User regular
    The only thing I ever find at the crossroads is Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.

    I watched some of Ninja's streams over the weekend and yeah, the guy is definitely on a different level from other Twitch streamers, I think the deal at the crossroad is a valid theory.

    From what I remember they are actually triplets for property brothers. Or at the very least they have another brother. Kinda like sister sister has an older sister and brother that were not actors like them and the younger brother.
