That's way cool.  I admire women who kick ass.

In fact, I married one.

Nice find, subby.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate "reality" and "satire".

Having just finished Warrior Nun...it wasn't bad. It wasn't great, but it was OK.

Yeah, these women are badass.

Carl Douglas was right.

Do they use nun-chucks?

It's not, but absolutely should be.

And they love watching horror movies.

I'm guessing they'd get a kick out of Aliens.

do they practice auto-erotic asphyxiation?

Therion: It is becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate "reality" and "satire".


Monasteries have been teaching martial arts for centuries. These ones happen to be women. Doesn't seem so satirical to me.

... Now, throw in some vampires, and we're cooking with gas.

Well, at least the ones who think about attacking women will.

"However, monks from other sects believe that if a woman touches something it's considered tainted and they have to throw it away, so [the nuns'] work is still not widely accepted."

One case in particular drew outrage from the Drukpa nuns. They heard about the story of an 8-year-old girl from a nomadic Muslim family. Their animals had accidentally grazed on Hindu land. A Hindu priest reportedly kidnapped the girl and kept her in a cage in a temple and had her gang raped. She was eventually killed by an unknown assailant.

What the ever-loving fark?

Bears. Bears will navigate dark caves by feeling out a path, and if that path involves falling down a hole, they will fall down that hole every time.

/At least that's the story my friend told me when we couldn't get past a certain level in Super Mario Brothers 3.

I'm on the 7th episode and it's just now starting to pick up.

Also: anyone else think the lead actress looks like the love child of Ellen Page, Jennifer Lawrence and Emilia Clarke?

She's excellent, the best part of the series. I suspect she's going to do well in the years ahead.

"It is important, when killing a nun, to ensure that you bring an army of sufficient size. For Sister Thorn of the Sweet Mercy convent Lano Tacsis brought two hundred men."

I don't see a way to top Moby Dick's cold open, but this one's one of my favorites.

I was quoting this webcomic.  I couldn't easily find the installment where that line is said; yes, it is a fight scene.
