I believe the hakama is responsible for the samurai always having his sword with him. I think they needed to have the sword with them at all times not to defend themselves, but to cut themselves out of the stupid thing in case of a sudden attack of diarrhea. I sure wish I'd had a sword the other day


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
