  • He was a full blown psychopath or narcissist. Thats why he was so good. They are master manipulators, don't play by society's rules etc and they stay calm under pressure. That's why he didn't hesitate to cheat by blindsiding the first guy he killed. The apology scenario totally disarmed the guy he challenged and of course he was going to take advantage of that and not feel bad about murdering someone in cold blood.

  • "Die - ee - mee - ohs" (Samurai nerds) ARGHHHHH NOOO IT'S PRONOUNCED, "DIE-MYO" REEEEEEEEE Also just for anyone wondering, Musashi whittled a sword out of an oar because his opponent was known for having a sword just longer than most were used to, so Musashi made a longer one than what he usually used.

  • So I'm no expert nor have I been in many boats but I'm pretty sure you need two oars to steer a boat. Otherwise you kind of go in a circle. So there was a third oar perhaps. Or maybe that's why he was two hours late?

  • theory: the professor was a wandering historian in search of artifacts. one day, he found a lamp and the genie inside granted him three wishes. he wished to become a time traveler to make his search easier, but this genie was a bitch and turned him into a puppet to make things "more efficient" for him

  • Never did I think that a song about disconnected gay oars that were separated because one had to be turned into a sword to kill an esteemed samurai by an equally but secretly more esteemed samurai would be genuinely moving and very very well done

  • Imagine being the Professor and politely asking your guests if they've ever been in a fight to get your students engaged in your topic, imagining that you'll maybe hear about some drunken fisticuffs or something. And instead your good friend Ryan just casually drops into the conversation that he physically picked up and slammed a racist child into the ground at age 12. How do you even recover man I would be unable to think about anything else for at least 3 weeks
