So if you don't mind me asking, you mentioned once you can usually tell about how old a person is or more about them by how they write, how old did you think I was? I could tell you weren't a kid and that you are pretty smart but I wasn't sure if guessing in your 20's would be accurate or not. Same for Kirin.
You can never tell by grammar alone, since skills in that vary even with age.
However, most people type how they talk. Visualizing a person's words can be similar to hearing them if you have enough experience. I can tell there is a great deal of hesitation in your speech, probably out of politeness or unfamiliarity with the system. There also was a great deal of side conversation going on in addition to your points, the sort of thing I experience with more mature individuals.
Kirin and I talk similar because of our personalities and we have very close ranges in intelligence. We also are persuing the same career. So it was no surprise we were close in age as well.
Of course, your career can cause a great deal more comfort and hide your age well. UltimateSupreme's typing hides his age very well, because he's so used to talking to people online and being in front of the computer. However, for the most part, people's typing can give away their age, and their origin, because our accents and dialects are included in typing. So, for instance, I can tell when someone is from say, USA or Canada/Britain, because how they spell certain words. And I can also tell when someone, is from say, Ukraine or India, because of how they use English in their typing as well.
It is interesting. This must be a detail oriented career path you're on. I think that this is impressive since most people wouldn't pay close enough attention to discern an age range much less a region by how a person types. Lot's of people don't even know the difference between their, they're and there. That's a shame too, the 'written word' is pretty wonderful.
Actually it's the other way around. FMA's Pride character is newer than Shikamaru, so FMA is actually copying Shikamaru, not the other way around.
But yet fundamentally, it is a similar technique. However, Pride is more of strit offense, the shadows are like blades that cut through anything, and he can travel great distance through them as well. Shikamaru's technique is much more limited, even through he can "move" the shadow like Pride can.
The more I think about it, Naruto gets around maybe Hiruzen's age, what do you think he'll look like? Me, I thinking a super old version of Jiraiya with a goatee, with hair even more wild than Jiraiya's with a mixture of really bright yellow and white, wearing an orange and black cloak with an black suit with orange. What do you think?
Not necessarily, there's plent of older men who switch from short hair in their adult years to longer hair in their elder years. Especially since Naruto is a Sage, it would given him a more Hermit like appearance.
Personally though, I sort of have a feeling Naruto is good to age "very" well. I mean, Hashirama looked the same as he did in his 20s, despite being a grandfather, not a wrinkle on the man. Naruto will probably likewise slowly age. I'm sort of questioning when his body will start aging, as you know, aging is the point where a body stops growing and starts weakening, but between Naruto's own unique DNA and Hashirama's Cells, I'm sort of wondering if that will even happen.
Either way, I sort of imagine him as having slightly longer hair, maybe a bit longer than it was when he was a teenager, and maybe a goatee. Personally, that picture of "Old Sage Naruto" is what I'm sort of suspecting he will look like.
I remember we had a conversation on this topic and I couldn't remember the reason why Hidan was not around while Orochimaru was in the Akatsuki and thus made the Akatsuki Recruitment gameplay section of Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution conflict with canon.
The Reason is Sasori and Deidera. Why them? Well Sasori was partners with Orochimaru while Orochimaru was in the Akatsuki, when he defected Itachi, Kisame, and Sasori recruited Deidera to be Sasori's new partner. Well if Orochimaru really recruited Hidan then he would be at least 2 members before Obito not the last member before Obito.
You had asked me why that segment broke with canon and I didn't remember the answer so here is the answer. Interested to hear your thoughts on the matter.
I have a similar feeling, and my only real opinion on the matter is that perhaps Orochimaru could have no been Sasori's partner the entire time. After all, it doesn't really say Sasori was Orochimaru's partner 'the whole time". So its very possible Orochimaru could have been partners with Sasori for a time, but when Deidara was located, Orochimaru was slated to be Kakuzu's new partner.
If you think about it Kakuzu and Orochimaru have almost as much in common as Sasori and Orochimaru. So really, Orochimaru has a connection to more than one member in terms of methodology.
If it's not already obvious, I am a Suigetsu / Gaara fan, mainly their techniques and /sand/ manipulation!
So I was wondering who would win if they were to battle?
To be fair, I was thinking of it before Gaara was qualified to be a Kage - preshippuden. He was really strong back then, so it could be assumed that he would win too. I've read multiple discussions regarding this, but still can't get my head wrapped around it!
Say, genin Gaara vs genin Suigetsu. I read on one of the forums to have them both at a certain amount of advantage - so a likely location would be, say...on land, with a waterfall between them?
Gaara has his ultimate defence and Suigetsu has his Hydrification Technique. With the waterfall, he's somewhat at an advantage. But also, Gaara can use the gravel and turn it into sand, therefore also using the ground to his advantage. In terms of chakra, Gaara would definitely win, also, his attacks are a lot stronger. But wouldn't Suigetsu's attacks make Gaara's sand turn into mud?
Hmm...I suppose full power preshippuden / when Gaara was completely bloodthirsty and turned into half of Shukaku...and that's true too; he didn't have much screentime preshippuden except during the chunin exams and that fight with Kimimaro.
We didn't know Suigetsu as a genin as well...I can't reach a conclusion.
As far as I know, Suigetsu's extremely weak to lightning techniques. An advantage to his hydrification technique (and I'm guessing his elemental affinity?) would be water. So, strengths, water? Plus, he can manipulate his body in certain ways. hm.
Well my problem with that is Gaara is stronger in Part II than he is in Part I. Also, Suigetsu is introduced in Part II, at 16, so its impossible to say how stronger Suigetsu would have been in comparison to Gaara in Part I, because he is never shown. I would perfer to do Gaara in Part II, and, if you want, I can include all the abilities Suigetsu "could" have as well.
Suigetsu's strengths are that he is completely immune to physical attacks, things like swords, taijutsu, and even most ninjutsu don't effect him. In fact, not even the Eight Gates could hurt him, because he is still technically water.
Like Suezi said, Suigetsu is weak against Lightning Release, but also large amounts of pure chakra can harm him like the Tailed Beast Ball. Of course, Suigetsu only gets hurt by those if he takes them head on, he can easily turn into a puddle and dodge it if he is using his Tate Eboshi.
A lot stronger in part 2! Like, if genin Gaara were to take on a genin Suigetsu, I have no idea how far it may go. Like you stated below the first comment, he can turn into water and evade every possible attack - the only risk in this would be chakra depletion; which will result in Gaara winning. But if he does attack...I would assume Gaara's sand is already extremely strong against water, but maybe not a huge body of water (waterfall scenario?). His sand could possibly turn into mud which would make it so much slower, giving Suigetsu an advantage. Then again, would Gaara really be defenseless? asdfghjkl help.me.
And I guess that could be...close enough to what I was wondering about. xD

I don't know if it is a big enough mass of chakra, the Tailed Beast Ball is in-human levels of chakra control, it's far beyond what the Rasen-Shuriken is. So its really hard to tell, the Tailed Beast Ball is the only thing we've ever seen knock him out.
It ultimately comes down to if you think Gaara using Shukaku is fair or not. Gaara in Part II doesn't have Shukaku, but in Part I he does. However, Gaara doesn't so much use Shukaku as he just lets Shukaku take over.
Suigetsu's Hydrification Technique, or his Water Transformation Jutsu as its also known, is extremely effective against sand. As Gengetsu demonstrated, the oil present in the Water Transformation Jutsu makes it too difficult to use Sand Coffin on it. In fact, even the attacks from the Water Transformation Jutsu will effect all sand it comes into contact with, even weakening Gaara's Sand Shield.
In short, with the abilties he showed in Part I, I don't know if Gaara could beat a Part II Suigetsu. Because, technically, none of Gaara's moves would hurt Suigetsu, in fact, very few of them would be effective at all.
However, Part II Gaara probably could beat him, but I don't know if he technically could kill him.
By "could" have I mean the abilities that are also a part of the Hydrification Technique, but Suigetsu never uses. Basically, the move set belonging to Gengetsu Hozuki, the Second Mizukage, and Suigetsu's fellow clansmen.
