Chuck Norris Facts

A bit off topic, but important information everyone needs to know. Heck, just to make it game related I'll highlight this little known fact about Mr. Norris:

Chuck Norris originally appeared in the "Street Fighter II" video game, but was removed by Beta Testers because every button caused him to do a roundhouse kick. When asked bout this "glitch," Norris replied, "That's no glitch."

But Chuck's important role in our space program should also be heeded:

Chuck Norris once bet NASA he could survive re-entry without a spacesuit. On July 19th, 1999, a naked Chuck Norris re-entered the earth's atmosphere, streaking over 14 states and reaching a temperature of 3000 degrees. An embarrassed NASA publically claimed it was a meteor, and still owes him a beer.

Actually, I do believ that it was this site: that started it all. First was the Vin Diesel generator, and Chuck's came along later and it's simplicity just made it too fun not to love.

Though I feel the need to point something out. My brother came home with a scrap across his chin last night. I asked him what happened and he said "I barely dodged a roundhouse kick from Chuck Norris!"

Three hours later his face fell off. Chuck Norris does not miss.

Chuck Norris does not miss unless Chuck wants to miss. Even if he misses, however, it's still a lethal blow.
