    Pirates or ninjas? Depends on the latitude and time of year.

    As is well known, pirates wore poofy white shirts, which are light and protect well from UV, so definitely pirates in summer in warm latitudes.

    OTOH, Ninjas dress all in black and cover nearly every bit of skin. Black and covered completely in the summer is right out, but very useful in higher latitude winters, especially in forests.

    It’s not clear whether either group exhibits migration behavior, but presumably there are latitudinal restrictions on range. Further, Europe seems to be lighter on ninjas than would be expected by the climate, so we must assume either that they have been extirpated in their typical range or that European ninjas are just that much better than the rest, and they’re actually all over Europe but are masters of concealment.

    To that last point, has anyone ever seen an EU bureaucrat in the same room with a ninja?
