I've encountered a few ninja flies in my time.

oh yes those.. D:

you have to move either very fast or extremely slowly, anything in between is doomed to fail.

Yes, I've done the extremely slow routine and it worked! I forgot about that technique.

use a flat hand, the last one or two inches you move it fast, the fly may notice but has no chance to escape.

They nearly all are!.. have you tried that trick where you clap your hands 6 inches over them?... the fly detects the air movement, takes off, and flies between your hands right as they come together.

What?! I've never heard that before. I'll need to try that next time I encounter one.

I think ninja flies would be a pretty good weapon to deploy. Although, not sure how much damage they can inflict with a sword the size of a toothpick. XD

Paper cuts bother me, so I hope flies never learn swordplay.

Yeah, me too. I'd buy some Ninja Venus Flytraps for my house for defense.

Ono should have had Mr. Miyagi as a master so he could deal with this household matter and also learn to do housework more effectively.

Flies like this are the reason that some people are pushed to invent things like the Bug-A-Salt. It looks like a Nerf gun, but it is really a miniature shotgun that fires salt to knock flies right out of the air.
