    Gecko45

    Who is this guy? Have read lots of references to him. They are not flattering. Sounds like a superhero who knows it all, has done it all, and wrote the book. If that was the case, I am sorry I missed him. Those kinda guys usually make for excellent entertainment.

    Here is a link to the Shrine of the Mall Ninja.

    Just wow. I had seen the references but not the original material. It is better than I ever imagined. In fact, it is so good.... I mean, is there anyway it was someone having everybody on? Some of the details are just too good:

    "We were previuosly restricted to .38’s and two Mossberg 500’s with less leathel rounds in them, but when our team saved the life and possibly the virginity of the Mayor’s nephew, there was a special relaxation of the rules made for us..."
    That's like something a comedy writer would throw in. It kind of reminds me of this this highly amusing book: http://www.amazon.com/Letters-Nut-Te.../dp/0380973545

    Oh my goodness. I read the link. Now I understand.

    Oh man. I got more than I bargained for.

    I lost it when I read "..a one time experience while in the military does not make you a homosexual.."

    That was unreal.

    Gecko 45 is real. Do you know how i know? I am he and he is me.

    Anymore wisecracks and I will show up swiftly, silently and nobody will ever know I was there. <--- Insert sinister Phantom of the Opera laugh here.

    I first read "shrine of the mall ninja" a couple of years ago when I first joined the forum and it is still one of the funniest things I have ever read! I have it "bookmarked" in my computer. I think of it everytime I run across some young "wannabee" on a Youtube video.

    Actually, I know it's not Timmy because the actual guy did at one time join here.


    This question (Gecko45 explanation) gets brought up every couple of months, maybe it's deserving of it's own sticky...

    Wow. Awesome. : ) I do think it needs to be a sticky.

    Ah, the origin of the phrase "mall ninja." Good times!

    Here we go again. Another example of "The Man" attempting to tell us commoners that a true American Hero does not exist. This is nothing more than another attempt to make us believe that only they can protect us. They use every opportunity to squash any reports of heroes like this.

    Every time Gecko saves some shopper from a fate worse than death the establishment either ignores it or tries to claim that it was their people that saved the day. Gecko probably went into hiding because of "The Man" trying to silence him?

    Remember what they did to Zoro? How they made it look like he wasn't real? They did the same thing to Batman. We must never forget!

    Ok so the Gecko 45 character is a tool.

    He seems to have multiple personalities so does that make him a "mulit-tool?"

    Maybe I just came up with a new expression to use...

    "Hey Gecko......you're a multi-tool!"
    "A Smith & Wesson always beats 4 aces!"
