These internets are a dangerous place. You drop your guard for a second, next thing you know you’re on Wikipedia reading about box jellyfish wondering “how the hell did I get here? and when did it get to be 2 A.M.?” [oh, and probably thinking that getting stung by an Irukandji sounds like just about the worst thing ever]. Well, my ninjas, there’s no need to fear – this is exactly why there’s MyNinjaPlease to help guide you on your journey through the world wide web. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a few hand picked links courtesy of Ninjas on the ‘net here at AMNP.

[Note: AMNP and MNP as a whole take no responsibility for you getting trapped on/in any of these other sites, any of which could snatch an hour or two from you before you knew it]
