Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

No, Ronin is a verb. What was that song in the 90's about "Ronin in my five-point-o"

I agree. Limp Biskit has a similar song "Ronin, ronin, ronin, what? I'm ronin, ronin......"

Under the "why do I know this? heading:
Ronin was a Samurai warrior that doesn't have a master (Shogun) to order him around. The ronin would go around trying to pay the bills by doing justice or unjustice, free from a micromanaging boss.
EDIT: Didn't read the poll, I have dishonored me, my family, and any children i may have . . .
