Flushing ninjas

Architecture.MNP was the first microsite for the MyNinjaPlease online network. No, I don't get it either. Other microsites include such topics as green, music, politricks , robotninja, an art store, a Spanish edition and what's called the Pimp's Store. Hoping the latter might be happening ninja street patois for 'architectural design' I clicked, only to be disappointed by such heads as Crack is Wack!!!! and Halloween was sumthin else!!!!.

Back on the main achitectural pages there's a cut from this very organ about Zaha's alleged awkwardness, followed by an intriguing device which generates power from flushing lavatories. No, I'm making no peristalsis-related jokes here, but I do remember this was the route by which owners disposed of unwanted terrapins after the ninja turtle craze. Which reminds me that Bournemouth has just joined the extremely fast fibre-optic-cables-in-the-sewers revolution. Because the former deploys an in-line impeller I imagine you will have to make a stark choice between the two. Or somehow divert your broadband before it reaches the bathroom.
